This book will not be written without the grace and empowering that comes to God alone through my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him alone be the glory!
My ministry experience was forged in the Trinity Bible Church, and their encouragement over the years is one my greatest blessings. They will see several examples from our life together in this book. One of my churchmates provided a constructive review of the book.
I am deeply grateful to my colleagues in the various offices I have worked on as a professor and scientist. They have shaped this book in more ways than one.
My family has been the bedrock of my life and where I first learned what it means to be a leader. Our grown-up children, son-in-law, and granddaughters are a source of pride and joy.
Next to my relationship with God, my greatest blessing is my wife, Haydee. Leading her, and with her, is something I will eternally cherish.
Soli Deo gloria!
