Catch Voddie Baucham Messages on Sermon Audio

The folks over at sermonaudio have been very gracious to me.  They contacted me a few months ago about the possibility of posting my messages on their site.  I was honored, intrigued, and way too busy.  However, I have since found time and help (thanks to the media team at GFBC and the folks at Monergism), and have put several messages on the site.  Those of you who have been bugging me about putting more messages out there can GET OFF MY BACK ALREADY!  I’ll see how the downloads go and keep up as best I can.    Those of ...
