About Wade M.
  • Education: I graduated high school in Springfield, Illinois in 1970. I graduated Lincoln Memorial University, in Harrogate, TN from 1970 to 1974. I graduated in 1974 which a Bachelors degree in Humanities, I have taken classes and many seminars. Berian classes, Boot Camp, and Ky. School of Ministries.
  • Experience: I traveled 6 years playing Southern Gospel Music. I taught school in Lee County, Virginia 6 years. I headed a jail ministry for 5 years, I have visited jails and prisons in 6 states. I was an associate pastor/evangelist. In 1981, I went to full time pastoring in West Prestonsburg, Ky. This is a very small mountain missions work. In 1989 I moved here to Smiths Grove to pastor. I have made many missionary trips to Haiti.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I try to make my sermons practical and applible to every day life. I want to point others to the cross. I want to point others to the cross of my Savior and Master.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Basketcase preachers. The problem of the heart is the heart of the problem. Speak to the Divine Possibilities.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: ME ON DEATH ROW? I stood on Death Row in a prison. I was with a criminal, he had been locked on Death Row 18 years. I spent the last 5 days in the prison with this criminal and his family. To me he was not a criminal, he was a precious friend’s son. I was there to witness the execution for the family. I am not here to address the pro’s and con’s of the death penalty, but to tell you I stood with a man condemned to die. I never thought about being identified with a criminal until minutes befor
  • Family: My Dad is a Church of God Pastor of 60+ years. My older brother is a Methodist preacher. I have been married to Linda 44 years. I have two sons they are part of our worship team, and they play music with me. I hav My two older grandsons play music with me.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: My Mom was my greatest fan. She loved my tapes and would share them with others. Mom died August 1998. My Dad has been supportive and my music partner for years. My Dad was my pastor my first 21 years.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: Don’t ask? Don’t tell? She says they are humerous, illustrated and thought provoking. She has listened to me many years. I am glad she doesn’t want to go to another church. I hope?
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Be patient and keep plugging away no matter how you feel. Pastoring is not like a carpenter, you can’t see at the end of the day what you have accomplished in ministry. We see in a time bound perspective, our personal scope of vision must not hinder the work set before us. Learn to be quick to say I am sorry. Then try again.
  • Books that have had an impact: The Bible, the word of God does the work of God!
  • Hobbies: Studying the Bible and preparing lessons. I love music, I and my family play music. I have traveled playing the bass guitar and lead. Haiti is one of my loves.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: I would talk all night if I thought this was my last sermon. I would warn that we are headed toward death at 60 minutes per hour, or 1440 minutes a day. We need to establish a priority system and invest our time, talent, and energy wisely. we waste life on trivial pursuit.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Once, I bent over and riped my pants. Another time, I was doing an illustrated sermon with a loaf of bread, as the rich man wiped his face and threw the bread to the dogs. As I wiped my face, I didn’t know the loaf of bread had butter in the middle, I rubbed butter all over my face. Recently, I was doing an illustrated sermon, that we can determine how much God can bless us. I had a very small metal bowl, a little bigger and a little bigger. When I got to the largest metal bowl, I waved it ov
