Pastor Holwick's website

Free sermons and illustration databases designed especially for Evangelical Christian workers

Last updated January 14, 2024

Though I am now retired, here are the websites for the churches I served:

First Baptist Church of West Lafayette, Ohio (1982-1989)

First Baptist Church of Ledgewood, New Jersey (1989-2018)
I am currently an elder at Boothbay Baptist Church, Maine, and available for pulpit supply in Lincoln County, Maine.

A collection of all My Sermons (1,600+) online or in a downloadable (and searchable) archive.

My downloadable Mega-Databases with 37,500 illustrations and 27,300 sermons in two versions (both are big downloads):

SID for 2024

Kerux2010 for 2024

New (December 2023) annual supplements are available for each version. If you already have a mega-database installed, don't bother downloading a new one - just download and install the small supplement file. Use the "Import" feature contained in each version.

Check out who uses the databases around the world.  Updated on January 23, 2021.

Illustration websites I have found online with an emphasis on the free ones.  I give a short assessment of each one.
