    Hi Paul,
    It is nice to come across your site. I am encouraged already by your thoughts and your mission. I too, hold a Biblical worldview on human behavior and development. I believe that in order to lead, transformational leaders are necessary…those that lead with vision, character, integrity and embrace the global community. I am presently re-reading Spiritual Leadership by Henry & Richard Blackaby and one of my favorite authors is Ronald Heifetz, The Practice of Adaptive Leadership as I continue my education with Capella University towards a Doctorate in Public Administration.
    Thank you for all you do.
