When I was a teenager I dreamed of preaching all over the world. I enjoyed listening to various preachers and evaluating their style to see if I would like to preach the way they did. I would hear some and think, "I hope I don’t bore people like that." Others I would hear and think, "I want to preach with the same passion they do."
One preacher I admired quite a lot was Ken Rudolph. He was a representative at the college I would one day attend. He spoke with enthusiasm and it was obvious he enjoyed what he was doing. He would preach all over the U.S. and various parts of the world. He would preach the Word of God with a love for it and desire for others to know what it said and follow it. He unmistakably cared for those whom he taught. I respected him, listened to him and hoped to be like him some day.
