In a follow-up sermon to one given in January, we will look at Israel's demand for a king, God's expectations regarding a king, the consequences to having a king, and finally the lessons learned from this subject. Listen as Mr. Gary Smith follows up to a sermon he gave in January entitled "There Was No King in Israel".
Gary Smith was born in Charlotte, North Carolina, but spent most of his youth in the Pasadena, California area. He graduated from Ambassador College in 1976 and he and his wife, Liz, moved to Peoria, Illinois. For the next six years he worked as a nursing home administrator in Illinois, Ohio, and Texas.
In 1982, he and Liz began to serve in the full-time ministry. Since that time, they have served in a number of congregations in the Midwest.
