Don Strand is a retired high tech engineering executive who embarked on his second career after being saved in 1997. He is passionate about the gospel because of its counterintuitive truth about God and mankind. When considering the surprising twists and turns of God’s redemptive story, he will sometimes say, “No one could make this up.”
His favorite Bible passage is Romans 1:16-17, Paul’s statement on the power of the gospel for salvation. Central to the work of God’s Word is the power of the surprising gospel of grace.
Don holds a Master of Arts in Theology, is an ordained minister, and serves his local church as elder, teacher, and worship leader. In his off hours, he can be found ranching on a large tract of land in northern California. He is married to Wendy, and they have three married daughters and one grandson.
