I was privileged to speak several places in 2018. I always preach and teach in my local context, but I was invited to speak several other places this year. I preached to both teens and adults. I did training for youth leaders and I’m looking forward to what 2019 has in store. Here is a sermon that I was able to preach at Middletown Church of the Nazarene.
