WATCH: Exclusive, behind scenes interview with Joel Rosenberg


One year ago, New York Times bestselling author Joel C. Rosenberg came to Iowa, to a FAMiLY Leader Foundation event, to debut his newest novel, “The Persian Gamble.”

Before that evening’s dinner and presentation, TFL President and CEO Bob Vander Plaats sat down with Joel in an exclusive, never-before-seen video.

The two talked about how America has changed since the day in 2012 when, at TFL’s Family Leadership Summit, Rosenberg issued a call for God’s people to humble themselves and pray to seek revival in our nation. That Summit significantly changed the direction of TFL’s ministry. And in this video, Vander Plaats and Rosenberg discuss why the Church must lead the change if we’re to see God stay His hand of judgment upon our country:

Now, one year later, Rosenberg is returning to Iowa to debut another new novel, “The Jerusalem Assassin.”

What’s more, he’s joining a very special guest – U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo – for “An Evening of International Impact” at the Des Moines Marriott Downtown on Saturday, March 21, at *6:30 p.m.

“As tensions mount in the Middle East, we wanted to set apart an evening to begin a conversation,” says Bob Vander Plaats, president and CEO of The FAMiLY Leader Foundation. “We have invited Rosenberg and Secretary Pompeo to sit down with us and discuss the current global situation, America’s role, and the impact our faith has on these circumstances.”

The evening dinner, brought to you by signature sponsor Lindell Recovery Network, will include an update from Vander Plaats on TFL’s “The Daniel Initiative” and presentations by both Secretary Pompeo and Rosenberg.

Secretary Pompeo has served the U.S. as an Army officer, a U.S. representative from Kansas, and the director of the Central Intelligence Agency. He serves today as the U.S. Secretary of State.

Rosenberg will join the dinner as part of the debut book tour for his newest novel, “The Jerusalem Assassin.” Author of 13 previous New York Times bestselling novels, Rosenberg has repeatedly proven his uncanny ability to foreshadow geopolitical realities, marking his place as a leader in fact-based fiction. Attendees will receive one complimentary copy of “The Jerusalem Assassin” per family unit, and Rosenberg plans a book signing following the event.

* Please plan on arriving early and leave personal defense items at home or in your vehicle, as the event will be monitored by diplomatic security.
