Comment to those looking at my sermons: I hope they are a blessing! If you are a preacher yourself, feel free to use what you can, but make it your own. I beg, borrow and "steal" from as many people as I can and filter it through my own heart and life to put together messages that I hope will truly transform other lives. So you have my permission to beg, borrow, and "steal" from me. After all, the man who said, "I’m going to be original or nothing," ended up with nothing.
Family: I am married to my wife, Sandy, and we have three grown children, Elizabeth (married to Nic), Peter (married to Naseem), and Tim (married to Emily). We also have four grandchildren, Eva, Deason, William, and Arthur, whom we enjoy very much.
Best advice given to me about preaching: "Turn your indicatives into imperatives" (Dr. John Reed, Dallas Theolgocial Semiary)
Hobbies: I play trumpet and enjoy good science fiction novels and movies.
