Sermons, Lessons, and Articles

I do enjoy writing and discussing theology in a public venue, but my primary calling is to teach and preach the Word of God. Thankfully, I get this opportunity regularly at First Baptist Church of Avon Park, Florida. Below you’ll find some sermons and lessons from the regular worship services at First Baptist, along with Bible studies from our youth ministry, FBC180. At the bottom of the page, you’ll find links to a few articles I have authored for and The Brink Magazine.
