However, to this man of priorities, there is no question about which comes first. "I am not a singer who happens to preach," he says. "I am a preacher -- called of God -- who happens to sing."

Staying focused on his mission, Pastor Honeycutt profoundly lives by and proclaims the words of Luke, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he hath anointed me to preach the gospel…” St. Luke 4:18 A very outspoken and articulate man of God, the most important thing to this great man of God, is how many souls he saves and how he has impacted the world in winning souls for Christ by evangelizing and steering the lost sheep into the fold of Jesus Christ. In his own words, “My goal is to do the work of the ministry and teach others to know Jesus Christ, grow strong in His Word, find their spiritual gifts, and help equip them to serve the Lord, so we can minister to others in the unity of Christ. With the love of God and a spirit of servitude, my aim is to empower the people of God to follow the call placed on them.” This preacher is “…committed to making the wounded whole!”
Pastor Honeycutt balances his life and ministry as the dedicated husband of Jan Adams-Honeycutt, a gifted woman of God.
