Sermons

 

I have always been a storyteller at heart, especially when preaching. I believe that part of a good sermon is when you can “experience” the message and make it a part of your life, motivating you to be a better Christian. The Bible presents many different people from different backgrounds and different walks of life; when we experience the scriptures from their eyes and perspective it helps us to relate to their situation… and ours.

Many of the sermons on this page are still in outline format as they were preached. I am reworking them over time to be more of a readable study or lesson. For some they can be and idea or perspective in which to look at a subject or passage.
