If you are in the area, you’re invited come and hear him share God’s word at Meadowview Baptist Church.
Since entering the ministry, he has written and developed thousands of sermons and sermon outlines for use in sharing the message of Jesus with others. He is currently involved in a project to compile much of this material for publication. His hope is that, when completed, the insights God has given him to share over the years will find a new audience and inspire others to trust Jesus as their personal Savior.
