Comment to those looking at my sermons: I love good preaching. There is nothing I like to do more than listen to and read sermons. While I study a lot of different resources but my main source is the Bible. So there is one thing I want to say: I milk a lot of cows but I churn my own butter.
Sermon or series that made a difference: There were so many but to pick one I would have to say it was Tom Malone at the 1995 Sword of the Lord Conference in Walkertown, NC. He preached on the text about the Rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16. I saw the suffering, felt the flames and knew from that day on God called me to preach the gospel.
Best advice given to me about preaching: Don't hold back. -Bro Walt, head deacon at Heavenly Heights Baptist Church.
Books that have had an impact: First, foremost, and above all others the Bible has impacted my life like no other book could have. Other good books that have had a positive influence on me are Tommy Tenny’s “God Chasers” and CH Spuregon’s “Lectures to My Students.” Books that made me go hmmm and think include Donald Miller’s “Blue Like Jazz” and Shane Claiborne’s “The Irresistible Revolution.”
What I want on my tombstone: Boy did he look good for 100...
