I love preaching. I have spent the past 25 years teaching around the world and loving it. In 2017, however, I will take a break from traveling to strengthen the local church. I will also be teaching a weekly podcast in conjunction with where I will attempt to teach through the entire Bible in a year.

There are few things I enjoy more than teaching the Word to different groups of people, so it has been a difficult decision for me to make. As I consider how many good years I may have left on earth, I want to prioritize what I believe to be the most important things I can be doing: Encouraging individuals to get alone with God to study His Word and lead the local church well.


Francis will review requests for 2017, however, please note that he does not consider requests over one year in advance. Please fill out the attached form and send it to Thanks.
