Leaders Of The Future: Vision Strategies And Emerging Opportunities
Introduction: We know for certain that leaders today must have a firm grasp on history, the present culture, and the future of the world.

To be leaders of the future we must be leaders who have a capacity to build on the past.
Leaders who are in Christ's hands above all the agitations.
