I collected here sermons from my ministry plus some speakers that have provided important material for a strong spiritual life and a strong foundation in Adventist History. These are marerials that have blessed me and hope will bless you also.
My ministry grew out of life transforming encounter with Christ in 1985 followed by an intensive study of the Word in the light of the foundations of the Advent Faith. My sermon material has sought to present the life transforming joy, grace, peace and love as coming out of the rock solid foundations of the Adventist message given to our pioneers. If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? Ps 11:3
Dr Alan Lindsay was my Adventist history professor at Avondale College. A very warm and caring teacher that extended my love for Adventist history and its message.
I had the priviledge of touring with Dr Lindsay on a Adventist Heritage tour in 2006 and travel with him through many significant Adventist sites. It was a wonderful experience that will live with me the rest of my life.
This series was taken by Dr Lindsay at one of the churches I was pastoring in 2005. He brings his years of research to bear on the life and ministry of Ellen White within the Advent movement giving important details on how we should read her writings.
Glenn Coon stands out in my mind as one of the most spiritual and Christ centred presenters and writers within Adventism. I consider him to be one of the biggest influences on my thinking and spiritual experience.
I have listened to several of his sermons many times over and been blessed and inspired to connect more firmly with my saviour. One of my favourite aspects of his meetings is his singing of the song - "In my Father's house" - The joy, the enthusiam touch the heart and inspire a desire to commune together in the courts above with our dear Father. Glen Coon encouraged me to see God as a dear and tender Father and for this I will ever be grateful.
I highly recommend these audios to you. They changed my life and I pray they will change yours also. Special thanks to Glenn Coon Jr for providing these audios and giving permission to share them.

Wolfgang Stefani graduated from Avondale College with a degree in theology in 1976 and from Andrews University with an M.A. in music in 1981. He also possesses an L.Mus.A in piano performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music. While pursuing a Ph.D. in music and religion at AU, he taught in the Oliver S. Beltz Chair in Worship and Church Music at the SDA Seminary, a position he held full-time from 1993 until 1995, following completion of his degree. After teaching theology for two years, he and his wife, returned to Australia in 1997.
His careful research and presentation on the subject of music is worthy of note and should be listened to by all who are interested in the subject of music in worship. I highly recommend this series of presentations.
