Welcome to my blog! Here is what you can expect:
1. Posts primarily about things related to the Bible, spiritual growth, books, church history, contemporary Christianity, and sports. I especially enjoy encouraging people in their walk with Christ. Here are some examples of some posts that I think are especially geared toward helping someone develop their personal walk with the Lord Jesus Christ:“Tips for an Effective Devotional Time”, “Professor Horner’s Bible Reading Plan”, and “Prayer of Dedication”
2. A new post once or twice a month. I’d love to post multiple times a week, but church responsibilities and family commitments (with a wife and four growing kids) preclude the possibility at this stage in my life.
3. If you comment, which I hope you do, a response with a few days. But per my previous statement about church and family, I may be slower in response.
Thanks for stopping by and have a grace-filled day!
Where are you from and where did you go to school? I grew up in a small town in rural southern Illinois, called Benton. I am a graduate of Benton High School, Union University (B.A.), Southwestern Seminary (M.Div.) and Luther Rice (D.Min.).
What Bible do you use? My everyday reading Bible is a Windsor Text King James Version published by the Trinitarian Bible Society (to see one, click HERE). I preach from a New King James Version text produced by Holman and bound in brown goatskin leather by R. L. Allan (click HERE).
Where do you pastor? I am the founding pastor of Harvest Jacksonville – A Bible Church, which is a wonderful group of authentic followers of Jesus Christ.
What are your hobbies and interests? History, sports, hunting, music, and, most of all, spending quality time with my family.
Life verse? I struggled with coming up with a life verse for a long time. I think I have finally settled on John 15, verse 5, where our Lord Jesus said: I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
