Dr. Henry Poettcker’s memoirs recount his passage from a Russian Mennonite farm boy to the president of Canadian Mennonite Bible College (now CMU) and the president of Mennonite Biblical Seminary (now AMBS). Under his leadership, both institutions experienced major development and growth, and yet, where others would boast of such accomplishments, Dr. Poettcker reveals a modest life of devotion to God.

"For nearly 40 years, Henry Poettcker served as an important leader in the Mennonite Church. Never one to demand centre stage, he was a great team builder. Through his memoirs we come to know him as someone who exemplified faithful, humble obedience to God's call." Gerald Gerbrandt, President, Canadian Mennonite University, Winnipeg, Manitoba

“Reading these memoirs I frequently picture myself as a grandchild hearing family stories. I am drawn by anecdotes about deprivation and provision, God’s call, the challenges and joys of church work. . . . And I sense the winsome faithfulness of a humble leader.” Jacob W. Elias, Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary, Elkhart, Indiana
