RECORDED SERMONS

INTEREST

Of course, I love to conduct home Bible studies or group studies.

I also enjoy hunting and fishing and bluegrass music.

My wife and I both like to bowl occasionally.

We love to visit and have folks over for dinners and spend a lot of time in fellowship with members

MINISTRY OBJECTIVES

It is and always has been my desire to work with a dedicated body of believers to bring glory and honor to the name of Jesus as we serve together faithfully.

I believe that I have been gifted by God to preach and to teach His word, not only for His people, but also to a world lost without Christ.

My primary objective in ministry is to continue the life and work of Jesus, to the building up of His body, the church; and to assist a dedicated leadership in bringing Christ's body to a maturity and unity of the faith that would bring glory and honor to the Father, exalt the name of Jesus and following the leading of the Holy Spirit who lives within each and every member of His body.

I believe it is paramount that each member of the body to so live their life that everyone around them see the Christ living within them. It is my objective to so live, teach, and preach that I would be an example for others.

SKILLS

Multiple Skills & ABILITIES

My skills and abilities are numerous - secondary to my medical, military and ministry training. I believe my multiple abilities will be an asset to the congregation where you are.

Licensed Auctioneer
Auction for consignments, estates, equipment.
Computer/Audio-Visual
I am very capable with computer operations and software. Well versed in Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc. I am also very capable with audio/visual equipment, i.e. cameras, projectors, recorders, duplicators.

SUMMARY

I have preached faithfully for 34 years and am looking for a congregation that loves Jesus and His Word; that wants enthusiasm, leadership, sound Biblical teaching and preaching, love, personableness, office management abilities, computer literacy and sermons that edify, encourage and empower the people of God.

I am a highly motivated, high-energy gospel preacher of 34 years and US Army veteran with 17 years military service, who is seeking a congregation that wants to grow instead of the status quo. If it's leadership, motivation, counsel, guidance and teaching, then I may be the man to fill the pulpit where you are. If you're open for evangelism, leadership and Biblical training, these are my strong points.

My ministry is that of the Word. To reprove (bring to the light) rebuke (to admonish because of the light) and exhort (to point the way the light is going); to teach with all long suffering, and to constantly be about the building up of the body of Christ; to assist the shepherds of the flock in the feeding and equipping of the saints; to advise and admonish and counsel with the leaders and the church for the benefit of the body; in other words, A SERVANT FOR CHIRST for the building up of the local body of Christ with a world view for Christ.

Evangelism is one of my strongest points, having been a full-time instructor of the Fishers of Men Evangelism Training course for over 5 years. I have personally taught/trained over 1,000 Christians to carry the message of Christ to this lost and dying world, and believe I would be an asset to the brethren where you are.

I believe it is the work of the elders and evangelist to equip the saints for the works of service to which they have been called by the Lord. And, as we already know, we were called to "go make disciples of all nations" and to "baptize them into the name  of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." The problem is, not many, if any are going! I don't believe, until we have adequately trained the church, that the church is up to this task.

May the Lord bless you in your search for the man of God that He has for you.

His servant and yours
