Preaching

 

I would consider my preaching style to be primarily gospel-centered and expository. Over the past year I have preached expository messages through the book of Philippians and the Sermon on the Mount. I have also preached a topical series I entitled “Get Connected,” which emphasized the importance of relational small groups and relational evangelism. The following links are to sermons online.
