Welcome to John’s Start Page

Just in case you’re wondering:

I’m a husband, a father, and an ordained minister. I just finished my second pastorate. I also work at Shelton State Community College as Instructional Support and eLearning Manager. I teach religion at Shelton State and history at The University of Alabama.

I’m a graduate of Beeson Divinity School at Samford University. I’m also old enough now to realize I don’t know everything and that I’m not infallible. If you want to know a bit about my beliefs, you can read the Essay on the Apostles Creed I wrote to apply to Beeson. I’d also recommend you read my sermons.

I also write other articles based on questions posed by church members or other people.

I’ve posted a few sermons on this site, but most of my sermon manuscripts reside on the site of New Hope Baptist Church, my most recent pastorate site.
