His sermons are  biblical, practical, meaningful and inspiring. He also teaches on difficult topics such as Why is there evil? Is God Fair? Why so many problems in the world? Why doesn’t God answer all my prayers? Why married couples should stay together for better or worse.  Why there is hope in a hopeless world?
