  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I am just a guy who has felt God’s call on His life to serve in ministry. The sermons I have submitted are for the teaching of non believers, edification of believers and a challenge to the church to recognize the incredible gift we have received in Jesus our Lord and not to keep it to ourselves but to tell others wihtout fear when opportunities arise. I don’t have all the answers, and anyone who says they do is lying. I just desire to have an unconditional trust in God.
  • Family: Wife: Kara 3 Sons: Benjamin, Caleb, Nicolas
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: My most honest critic throughout the years. I know she appreciates the messages, but she loves to point out "buzz" words that I repeat often. She has threatened to start having the congregation play "Sermon Bingo" while I am preaching, and they are to mark off the playing card every time I say one of the words I am known to say a lot. I'm sure it would be an interesting moment to have a member in the congregation stand and yell, "BINGO" some Sunday morning.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Having nerves before you get up to preach is healthy. You are getting up to share the most important truth anyone will ever hear and you don’t want to screw that up.
  • Books that have had an impact: Bible Salvation Belongs to Our God by Christopher J.H. Wright Lasting Investments by Kent Humphreys The 9-5 Window by Os Hillman Hebrews Through A Hebrews Eyes by Dr. Stuart Sacks Biblical Eldership by Alexander Strauch
  • Hobbies: Spending time with my wife & kids, reading, music, golfing, hunting, fishing (even though I don’t like touching fish), eating at Buffalo Wild Wings, watching old TV shows (especially Andy Griffith), John Wayne, sitting out back at home by an open fire enjoying the nature all around me, watching & experiencing thunderstorms with my family, road trips (to wherever), cooking large quantities of meat on the grill, mowing the lawn, making people laugh, dreaming about the future
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: Once while preaching, I got a little to close to the pulpit, and without knowing it, a post-it note from inside the pulpit, attached itself to me in a very embarrassing location on the front of my pants. My wife and another lady from our congregation began signalling me from the back of the sanctuary. I thought my zipper was down. When I positioned myself back behind the pulpit, I non-descreetly reached down for my zipper and discovered the issue. I brushed it off & carried on.
  • What I want on my tombstone: A man who pleased God.

    It is a word that has been used as an alternative term for prayer. It has been used to describe the way a person moves. It has also been used by many parents to name their daughters. Still, none of these uses seem to catch the true nature of what Grace is

    There are 4 instances in the book of Mark where Jesus uses the phrase, “Follow Me.” Jesus will never call us to do something He hasn’t already done. We must Follow Him in faithful obedience.
