Ministry and Missions: Sermons and Presentations (2010-2016)

Note: In early 2010 I concluded a second tenure as pulpit minister with the Main and Oklahoma church in McAlester, Oklahoma with the purpose of beginning an expanded phase of ministry and mission involvement. The transition into a different type of ministry opened many doors of opportunity and my seminars, teaching, and preaching have extended to many parts of the U.S. and to most of Latin America. This new focus in ministry and missions has included interim ministry and preaching, missions emphasis Sundays, special events and series, seminars, teaching, and preaching, along with counseling, mentoring, program development in Latin American churches, resource support, special projects funding, and more.
This page lists selected activities, presentations, and sermons in 2010-2016, in reverse chronological order. [You can access many of the sermons preached from 2000-2010 through the links below.]
