About West
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I am putting my sermons on sermoncentral so it may inspire or help someone in their ministry or life.
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Preach inductively not deductively. Your pulpit ministry will only be as good as your private meditation.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: There is a reason for life...There is a reason for hope...Jesus Christ.
  • What I want on my tombstone: He loved and followed Jesus.
