Preaching This Sunday in Los Angeles

October 4, 2007

This Sunday I’m preaching at Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles, California where H. B. Charles, Jr. is the pastor. He is one of my favorite pastors in America and has been for several years. I say that even though we have never met in person. Back when I was pastoring in Oak Park, he somehow found me through my weblog and we became email friends. Later I began to read his outstanding weblog. He is absolutely unique among the blogging pastors I know because he gives his readers an inside glimpse of what it means to be a pastor and a preacher on a daily basis. When he has a tough day, he says so. When he senses God’s presence, he tells you about it. When he struggles to get his sermon together, he writes about it. Church members wanting to know what a pastor goes through each week in preparing to preach should read his weblog.

At the request of Pastor Charles, I am conducting a seminar on preaching and pastoral ministry this Saturday from 9-12 AM. The conference is free but you need to pre-register by calling the Mt. Sinai church office at (323) 734-1028 or by emailing

Ebook: In His Steps

No one who met our Lord ever stayed the same. If Christmas tells us why Jesus came, then Easter tells us he fully accomplished his mission. In between those two events we have the whole life of Christ. That’s our focus as we walk “In His Steps”, a book of 47 devotionals for the season of Lent (the period of time leading up to Easter).

“Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
