About William Morris

Education: Dr. Morris received his education at Campbell University (BA in Religion), International Seminary (M.Th.), and Luther Rice Seminary (M.Div. and D.Min.)

Comment to those looking at my sermons: My preaching is strongly Biblical, straight to the point, and pulls no punches. My sermons are designed to get a response. I often quote Vance Havner, "my calling is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comforntable."

One of my favorite illustrations: Charlotte Elliot once asked a friend, "what must I do to be saved?" The friend answered, "come to Jesus just like you are, and He will do al the rest." Charlotte did just that, and later wrote those words that have moved millions, "Just as I am without one plea, but that thy blood was shed for me, and that thou bidst me come to thee, o lamb of God I come."

Family: Dr. Morris is married to the former Terry Annette Courtney of Pageland, SC. The are the parents of two children: Zachary Todd, born February 18, 1997 and Joshua Turner, born February 28, 2000. Mrs. Morris is a nurse by profession and employeed by Doctors Care in Lugoff, SC.

What my parents think of my sermons: My parents are members of a church that is not as conservative theologically as I am, but they seem to enjoy my preacing, although they think I’m long winded.

What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: I am her favorite preacher (or at least she tells me I am).

Best advice given to me about preaching: Preach where you live. Don’t preach what you have not experienced in your own life.

Books that have had an impact: What Every Christian Ought to Know Ablaze For God Why I Preach That The Bible Is Literally True By Their Blood

Hobbies: Golf, fishing, hunting, travel, study of history, baseball and softball umpire

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Jesus came to seek and to save that wheich was lost.

What I want on my tombstone: Just A Country Preacher
