ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A pastor turned comedian made a special appearance at Sherwood Baptist Church. 

Dennis Swanberg, also known as America's "Minister of Encouragement" delivered Sunday's morning sermon. He's known for his impersonations of Ronald Reagan and Muhammad Ali, among others. Swanberg signed copies of his new book, Planting Shade Trees, for fans. The book encourages people to leave a legacy for others. 

"The Lord has been very gracious to me for these last 20 years encouraging people through laughter,” said Dennis Swanberg. “So, there's a method to my madness and that's to get the message of Jesus Christ to folks that he loves you and he cares for you."

Swanberg, also known as "The Swan," returned for more laughs in the Sunday evening service. He has written nine books over the course of his career, and already made more than 100 appearances to churches, conferences, businesses, and concert events nationwide in 2014.
