Why Do I Want to Preach?

Ethan is a 2nd year student at the Tri-Cities School of Preaching and Christian Development in Elizabethton, TN. He holds a B.A. in Music Education from East Tennessee State University. He’s active in teaching, preaching, writing and teaching hymns, and actively takes part in 708 Ministries in Johnson City, TN. He currently preaches at the Red Oak church of Christ in Weaverville, NC.

With the message the Gospel brings to us today, it is a sincere effort of mine to help others who are struggling, in need of a direction in life, and in need of a fa­­­mily in which to find love. I can think of no better place to be than within God’s family. Many of the youth and faithful Christians are falling by the wayside. Our actions as the church are becoming complacent and few. I simply aspire to inspire and relight the flame of works unto others to show how God changes lives and His promises are worth living every moment for. Christ lived and died believing in this, therefore, my hope is built on nothing less. - E.J.T
