URBANDALE, Iowa – The FAMiLY Leader Foundation announces U.S. Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo and New York Times bestselling author Joel C. Rosenberg will address attendees of a dinner organized by The FAMiLY Leader Foundation called “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.” 

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.

Tickets for “An Evening of International Impact” will go on sale at noon, sharp, on Friday, Feb. 21, at www.thefamilyleader.com.
