I have been a pastor/teacher for over 25 years. My high school speech teacher rightfully warned me not to go into public speaking. Anytime I tried to speak in public my skin would get blotchy, my voice would go up an octave, and I would begin to stutter. But something changed just a few years later. I was converted to the Christian faith and the Lord gave me a passion and a fire to speak His word. I now teach in front of hundreds, and by the grace and gifting of God, the stuttering and blotchiness are gone.
Part of Firmly Rooted’s mission is to reach the lost with God’s Word and to equip Christians on how to be steadfast in the faith. I offer myself to churches for guest preaching, Bible study teaching, and seminar and retreat presentation. If your organization is interesting in having me speak for you, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are a couple samples of my teaching:

I would appreciate any comments from those who have heard me speak in the past. Please add your comments to this post.
