About Dennis Michelson

I have been in the ministry for 38 years. Originally, it was my plan to be a musician and I was trained for that field at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina.

God directed me away from music to a ministry of preaching and training preachers. I graduated with Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministries degrees from Temple Baptist Seminary.

I hope my sermons (below my submission form) will be a blessing to those who read them.
