I enjoy preaching as vital part of a thriving Christian community. It is the good news of Jesus Christ for all the world. Although preaching is only one aspect of the Christian life, I've constantly seen God do amazing things through the proclamation of His word. I am still in the early stages of my development as a preacher, but I have the privilege of learning from an amazing preaching team at my church. Ray Johnston, Curt Harlow, Andrew McCourt, and Bob Balion are world-class preachers with a heart to develop the next generation of preachers.
I had the honor of sharing this message on Memorial Day Weekend 2017 at the Bayside Blue Oaks campus. It's from the account of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead (John 11). I called the sermon, "Trusting God When Hope is Lost." Click on the image to follow the link to an audio of the sermon.
