FEATURED SERMONS AND OUTLINES
Who am I?
My name is Olaide Banks, I'm a worshiper, a teacher and a student. I am a student of God's Word and I pray to God for clarity, guidance and leadership before I ever get up to minister as a preacher or musician. As a Gospel recording artist, studying God's Word along with writing and delivering sermons helps me to reach God's people in a whole different way.
My preaching inspiration is the greatest preacher of our generation, Dr. Ralph Douglas West of the Church Without Walls in Houston.
As a practicing attorney, I am required to rely on facts and settled law to make my arguments in a courtroom. My personal opinions and feelings don't carry much weight in a Court's decision-making process. Similarly, in my sermons and outlines, I try to focus on supporting any assertions I make with "in-context" textual references and then allow The Holy Spirit to deal with the reader or listener.
Every song that I write either starts as preaching outline or becomes a full sermon, separate from the song.
My qualification comes from The Holy Spirit, and my preparation comes from studying the text in the Bible, along with learning from pastors and teachers who are faithful to the Word. My outlines and sermons focus on passage-driven exposition.
I have taught various bible studies and Christian education classes including Firm Foundations and MasterLife since 2002, and I preached my first sermon in May 2012 at Way of Life Bible Fellowship, under Pastor Elvis Coombs.
I maintain this page to share ideas and thoughts with my friends and colleagues in ministry. My favorite scriptures are Joshua 1:8 and Jeremiah 29:11.
