Dr. John Stahl-Wert

“John is the foremost leadership instructor and teacher in my leadership development. No leader is self-made. His training impacted me to the core. John’s five-point leadership model fed my hungry mind as a long-term student. His Mennonite roots and grasp of Anabaptist history and theology were indispensable to me as a student and writer. Like no other person, John provided me with the building blocks for the leadership content I’m producing today. Even more so, John’s love and encouragement reached my heart along with his unshakeable belief that I could write when I was quite sure I should quit.”
