  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I do not in any way claim to be a great sermon writer. Most of the time I have an outline but rarely follow them to the end. My style is I have a great passion to share His Word. I want to see peoples eyes opened as I present His message with Passion. If I have passion I can really deliver a message. Its those sermons that you know you have to deliver for the sake of the people that get me. I make myself get out of ruts. If it was up to me I would preach on revival and renewal all the tim
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Becoming intimate with God
  • One of my favorite illustrations: One of my favorite jokes: Is about a guy who has a parrot setting in front of his pet shop. This guy and his wife is passing by and the parrot says "Hey you sure are ugly and your wife is a bit too large." The guy goes in to the owner and threatens to sue him next time his bird says something like that to him and his wife.

  • What my parents think of my sermons: Are you kidding me. I am the greatest preacher my mother has ever heard. LOL
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: Rhonda is my greatest critic. She keeps me in line and makes sure I watch my P’s and Q’s. In all seriousness she loves my preaching and she is my little prayer warrior while I preach. She probably doesnt hear much of what I say because of her interceding for me.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: If you cant say what you need to say in 30 to 40 minutes you dont have anything to say at all.
  • Books that have had an impact: Wow! Intercessory Prayer - Dutch Sheets, God Chasers & God Catchers - Tommy Tenney,
  • Hobbies: Fishing, Hunting, Camping, Traveling.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: There has never been a time in my life that I regretted following after Christ. I am so thankful that He chose and called me to do what I love to do and that is to minister to people that need to know God and know that He loves them unconditional. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have endured the enemy and the taste of victory is sweet in my mouth.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Every time I preach it seems something funny happens. I can’t recall anything right now but if I do I will update this section.
  • What I want on my tombstone: Here is a man who had great passion for God
