Foreword by Lecrae
"There are a lot of people who keep Atlanta standing. Pillars of the community, so to speak. And Rodney Bullard is absolutely one of those important pillars in our community. He has impacted the city beyond measure, but even broader than that, he’s impacting our world. He’s impacting our society through his efforts, through his wisdom, through his leadership. It’s been an honor, a privilege to be able to know him, to build and connect with him, to glean from his wisdom, and to contribute to any of his many efforts since I’ve known him. I’m very grateful for his work and am inspired to see what he will continue to do."

"We need heroes! The kind who flash powers of courage, humility, and service. The kind willing to sacrifice for the greater good. In Heroes Wanted, Rodney gives us the playbook for this new perspective of leadership. Ambitious and inspiring, Rodney’s insight helps us see that just when things seem to be spinning out of control, heroes rise to the occasion. A leader for such a time as this!"

“In his book Heroes Wanted, Rodney Bullard touches our heart and awakens the hero that is within each of us. With God at the center, he discusses the seven C principles that inspires our heart to do good, helping by word and deed those who are far away or maybe only ‘three feet in front of us.’ Heroes Wanted has a long shelf life, for after each chapter there are questions, mostly faith-based, that challenge us individually or as a group to contemplate the inspiring material that is before us. Thanks, Rodney—you did real good!”

"Rodney Bullard is the rare one—a highly regarded corporate leader who ushers us toward inner awakening and the transforming power of faith. His Heroes Wanted gets to the heart of the dilemma we all face at times: how to break through the life-limiting barriers of doubt, fear, and conformity, and extend ourselves with confidence in every area of our life. His strategies and stories demonstrate how positive beliefs propel us toward our goals and can make us a powerful force for social good. Heroes Wanted inspires that can-do spirit, the courage and conviction needed to succeed in life and know that we are human and divine, the sacred link between heaven and earth."

"Rodney’s message in Heroes Wanted is that every single person has value and every single person needs help. I’ve made it from the trailer parks in Georgia to the red carpets of Hollywood because of the heroes who have invested in my life. Now my passion is to do the same for others. They say that ‘helped people… help people’— and that’s what Heroes Wanted is all about!"
