Over the past year, I have been hosting “table talks” with grassroots leaders to discuss how we can network for transformation both locally and globally.  I am originally from Sully, Iowa, and was a trial lawyer in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for 14 years before joining Christian Reformed World Missions in 1995.  My wife Jeannie and I have four children and four, soon to be five, grand children.
