About Sir Me.


Head Shot

Welcome to my emporium. Thanks for stopping by. You probably have a hunch that Scribblepreach.com is your kind of place, don’t you? You’re probably wondering whether it’s worth your time, aren’t you?

If you love writing, literature, preaching, theology and the gospel, I’d say yes. Here’s why:

  • 1-2 times a week you’ll learn something useful about preaching and communication.
  • 1-2 a week you’ll learn a tidbit about writing or a new “word I heard”.
  • 1x a week I’ll share with you a quote from Movies, Literature or any art-form to chew on or use as an illustration.
  • You’ll receive my free e-books, “Preachable: 52 Questions to Guide You From Study to Pulpit”, “Classic Fiction: The Secret to Being Well-Read in One Year or Less” and a FREE BONUS.

If you don’t love those things, you might enjoy the ride anyway.

Oh, you want to know about me? I’m a writer, preacher and a student. I studied communication, creative writing and literature at Oxford University and ONU, and am currently working on a YA series with my lovely illustrative wife, Brenna. I’ve spoken across state and continent, and won some insignificant awards.

Also, and importantly: I don’t make claims to be a great preacher or writer. I do make a claim to being a great researcher – I’m good at reading lots of information about preaching and writing, and distilling it into bite-sized chunks for your reading pleasure. That’s all.

Now you see those big, flashy, cool buttons on the top right asking you to subscribe? You should click one, and enjoy the magic.

Not into commitment? Follow me on Twitter, where I collect morsels of writing and communication relevant material and give it away Scot-free.

    Hi! I’m glad I found your blog :) Makes me think of my fiancé as he works through his personal philosophy of preaching. He’s also a writer—a Literature/Writing major who’s currently finishing up his last year as an M.Div student. We both love art in its various forms and we have a desire to minister to artists, however that would look like. Looking forward to reading more!
