Preaching and Teaching Venues
I would love to serve your ministry if possible. I have done Student Ministry retreats, Men’s retreats, and Perspective courses- The Story of His Glory and The Mandate for the Nations. I have been invited to fill pulpits of other church ministries from time to time. Since 290 Community Church meets on Saturday nights, I am more often available to speak on the Sunday mornings we don’t have Life Groups.
There are several styles of preaching ranging from expository (working through a book of the Bible thought by thought or verse by verse), topical (starting with a topic and finding passages to support), to narrative (the primary use of stories to communicate the Bible).
My style of preaching leans more towards expository while adding enthusiasm and exultation.
I seek to worship God (exult) while I preach. It is my hope that this is infectious (enthusiasm). The goal of preaching is the glory of God and the equipping of believers to pursue making disciples of neighborhoods and nations.

About Me, This Blog, and My Leadership
Leading a church is a sacred trust. The Church is called to proclaim the Gospel—that Christ was crucified for man’s sin, buried, and resurrected, according to the Scriptures. Entrusted with the inspired and inerrant Word of God, the Church equips people to do the work of the ministry. As the body of Christ, the Church is His agent of grace and righteousness in the world. The local church is part of the overall Kingdom of God on earth. It is God’s resource for reaching both neighborhoods and nations. In God’s economy, prayer is the work of the ministry. Pastors of churches must pursue deepening their love and dependence on Jesus. My leadership philosophy is promoting the spread of the Gospel with the partnership of fellow leaders, both vocational and voluntary.
This blog is geared towards those in the ministry of 290 Community Church, equipping and training in Leadership Development, and the larger audience of internet traffic.
According to Hersey and Blanchard’s situational leadership research there are many different styles of leadership for many different situations. A leader needs to first understand the “readiness” of those they lead. They can delegate leadership to the strength of those around the table, but can never delegate ultimate responsibility. I am strong in the areas of charismatic, participative, and transforming leadership styles. Other areas would require the help of a support team. A person with this combination of styles should be able to delegate well, empower effectively, cast vision that others will accept as their own, and creatively solve difficult problems through prayer, biblical research, and teamwork.
