You Can Become an Effective, Respected Leader
Ted W. Engstrom was one of the most influential Christian leaders of the last century. Among Christianity's most successful and well known leaders, including the Rev. Billy Graham, Bill Bright, Dr. James Dobson, and the Rev. Jack Hayford, few names evoked such respect and admiration as Ted Engstrom. Rev. Hayford likens Engstrom's influence on modern Christianity to that of Simon Peter in his day.
Known worldwide for his insightful wisdom and visionary business and managerial savvy, Engstrom was the quintessential mentor and businessman whose enduring legacy of leadership will continue to influence Christians for generations to come. His devotion to the evangelical movement is legendary and his wisdom and strategies for the practical application of Christian leadership helped guide the ministries of Youth for Christ, the Rev. Billy Graham, World Vision, and countless others to immeasurable success.
