Here are some of the questions from the interview:

  • How do you prepare your preaching calendar?
  • What’s the best sermon you’ve ever preached?
  • How does the Holy Spirit affect your preaching preparation and delivery?
  • How do you address contemporary topics from the pulpit?
  • Has your preaching changed over time?
  • Have you ever experienced burnout? How did you reach that point, and what changes did you make to survive?
  • How do you balance sermon prep and personal devotions?

  • The Bible doesn’t make mistakes, but the preacher does.

  • Guys get busted for going too far; I would like some guys busted for not going far enough.
  • I believe in riot evangelism.
  • The idols are in our heart before they’re in our hands.
