From Pastor Mark Leuning:
"I want to express my sincere thanks…
To the people of Ross Valley Community Church and The Springs Church, much of what is found in this book was because of the process and lessons we learned together. Thank you for allowing proximity to your lives.
To Joyce Erfert and Heather Gholson for your great assistance in editing this text, boy did it need it.
To the pastoral team at The Springs Church. A big thanks goes to you for your prayers and encouragement. “This is Church.”
To my amazing and talented family who challenged me to dream and put these ideas into print.
And to Eric Huffman who has taken the words on the page and crafted them into an expression of worship. For through your art, wordsmith and design you truly brought this book to life.
Finally, and most importantly, my deepest thanks are to the grace and love of my Savior, Jesus Christ, you are the core of my existence.
