Dwelling 1:14 is a non-profit ministry which helps leaders disciple people to join Jesus on his mission in the places they already live, work and go to school. The name Dwelling 1:14 refers to John 1:14 and the incarnational, missional nature both of Jesus and those who would follow him into the world. Greg offers consulting and training experiences for congregations and their leaders in discipling, living missionally, and multiplying missional community environments.  Greg will be delivering a keynote entitled Mission of the Cross. Often times people simply look at the cross through the lens of personal salvation and live life primarily on the sidelines of God’s activity in the world. But Greg will show us how Jesus’ atoning sacrifice on the cross not only saves us, but also gives us a mission and compels us to live on the frontlines of God’s Kingdom building activity in our own communities. Using Ephesians 2:8-10 as his foundation, Greg will educate and inspire us towards an exciting new way of living as everyday missionaries in our local communities. Greg is a graduate of Concordia University, Chicago and Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. Before founding Dwelling 1:14, he served as pastor of two congregations in Michigan and Texas for 21 years. Greg and his wife, Susan, have three daughters and enjoy life as neighborhood missionaries in League City, Texas.  Mark Vander Tuig, Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ Mark Vander Tuig serves as the Service Coordinator for Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ. He is an ambassador for Jesus’ Great Commission everywhere he goes. On the move a lot, Mark endures countless hours in airports and airplanes, rental cars and hotels, to do his best to help churches keep the mission of Jesus ever before them and to teach people how to share their faith with others. He defines his personal calling to “strengthen the congregations we have and to plant the ones we don’t.”  Mark will be presenting a keynote entitled, CrossTalk. All around the world, Christians find themselves surrounded by people who either have never met Jesus or are not connected to a local church. Mark will present research that indicates that while most are hesitant to walk in the doors of a church, that does not mean they are not interested or curious about faith. Then, he will help to identify ways to talk about Jesus that are normal and natural to us. He believes that God has placed us in this world to be his witnesses and it is time for us to once again find our voice. A graduate of the University of Northern Iowa, Cedar Falls, Iowa and Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota, Mark served as pastor of three congregations in Minnesota and Iowa prior to accepting the call to be Service Coordinator in 2010.
