- You’ve served as Senior Pastor at Olive Baptist in Pensacola since 1990. To what do you attribute the keys to longevity at one church?
- Interestingly, you followed a long-term pastor. How were you able to navigate the waters of pastoring a church led by the same person for such a long period of time?
- Your church experienced a really hard situation with massive flooding in your worship center. What are some key things to remember when we, as ministers, go through crises at our churches?
- I love listening to you preach. What is your routine when you go through sermon preparation?
- Sadly, you’re a big Bama football fan. How are you feeling about the SEC this season?
