  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: Some of the material has been borrowed from other sources. I have tried to give credit where it’s due, but over the course of time, I may not have cited some things properly. I pray these sermons from a young pastor will be of use to others.
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: I can't really say one particular sermon has made a difference. I have had many sermons over the years where afterward, someone in the congregation has said "Pastor, I could have sworn you wrote that sermon just for me. Thank you." Each time I proclaim God's Word from the pulpit, wherever I am, the Holy Spirit uses that word to work on someone where they are at. Keeping that in mind reminds me why I do this.
  • Family: I married my wife, Lindsay, in October, 2005. We are the parents of three children.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: They think they’re wonderful, sometimes a bit too long though.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: You’d have to ask her. :-)
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: Don’t put yourself down over your own perceived lack of ability in the pulpit. We are all unworthy servants, using God’s Word, not ours. When it becomes about you, you have lost your focus.
  • Books that have had an impact: The Bible "The Proper Distinction Between Law and Gospel" C.F.W. Walther "Joining Jesus on His Mission: How to Be an Everyday Missionary" Greg Finke
  • Hobbies: History, Sight Seeing, Family, Baseball
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Everyone has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. But because of the life, suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, all of our sins have been paid for and through Christ, you are set free from sin and are now a redeemed child of God!
