Prior to my becoming Executive Director of TI:ME, I got to know and had the pleasure to work with Floyd on books I worked on developing with TI:ME's Publications Committees and also as the acquiring publisher for the Thomas Nelson book Audio, Video and Media in the Ministry,(which I am co-credited with, but wrote not a word of) and have enjoyed working with Floyd in several areas since taking on this job last year. Floyd is outstandingly dedicated, extremely talented and is going to make an excellent President-elect and ultimately, President, of TI:ME
