Just received word that my dear friend, John Metz passed away this evening. My heart is sad right now.
John was a tremendous mentor to me in the art of leadership. Until moving away to be closer to his family, he was a pillar of the Hayward Wesleyan Church. (I fondly referred to John as our "quality control department.")
Here's what I wrote about him a while back.
John will be deeply missed. Please pray for his wife, Phyllis and their children.
