    Dr. Hopewell, I am currently readling your book “Keys to Becoming an Effective Associate Minister & Church Leader” and I have just one question: Are you hiding somewhere in my house listening to my prayers? I am an associate minister at my church and every page of your book speaks to nearly every thought and concern that I’ve faced. I can’t wait to finish reading it and then starting all over again to make sure I internalize the concepts you’ve outlined. Thank you for writing this awesome piece of work!
