No man is an island unto himself, but a compilation of those that have influenced his and his thinking. Whether it be his peer group, family and upbringing, colleagues, training or reading, a person is heavily influenced and inspired.

This is a small collection of those lives and biographies that have heavily influenced my missionary thinking.


The original missionary Ninja: The apostle Paul. Changed from licensed hitman into church-planter, who penned half of the NT. Multiple locations and cultures, teams, fund-raiser - an intellectual genius that was the hardest working minister I have ever read about. His tenacity in the face of adversity, yet his tender ability to coach and encourage co-workers is exemplary.
