Bible Studies

I have on several occasions been given opportunity to lead worship and teaching services at Westney Heights Baptist Church; Crossroads Community Church (where I served as a member of the Teaching Team); Pickering Standard Church (where I had the pleasure of serving as Assistant Pastor on various occasions over an eleven year period) and at several churches and retirement homes where I have been able to serve as pulpit supply. While I am no longer involved in active teaching ministry, I have included most of my sermons from these experiences to this website so that others beyond my normal audience may see what I had been given by God to say.

 

I do not believe that preaching is taking the advantage of a captive audience in order to win an argument or forcefully prove a point. I believe that it is an intimate partnership between God and man where God gives direction to the words the man chooses so that those whom He knows will attend the service will hear what they need to hear from the one He has selected to say it. Preaching serves as the feeding of the children of God with spiritual food and also as an introduction for those who are estranged from God to His perfect love for them. It is my belief that preaching should encourage a closer relationship with God on the part of those who love Him and foster a desire to know Him in those that do not.

 

The Gospel is not difficult.  It is an essential yet simple message of tremendous hope and great joy to all. The goal of my preaching has been to convey the excitement, and wonder of the Gospel to those who have come to hear it.

 

The sermons listed here, as all material on this website, are intended for personal enrichment and the development of a closer walk with God. If you intend to make use of anything I have said, which I certainly will not discourage, please do so in a way that honours the gifts God has given you to accomplish the work He is giving you to do. Thank you.
