Preacher - To be announced soon!

Greg Finke has been ordained since 1989, spending the last ten years of his pastoral ministry pastoring churches with 1,000 or more in worship. In January of 2011, he was called to do something totally different. He started Dwelling 1:14 with his wife, which helps Jesus followers like you connect with other Jesus followers in your neighborhoods, workplaces, and schools for the sake of discipling and living out the mission of Jesus day-by-day. These small communities of Jesus followers living in their neighborhoods, seeking the Kingdom, and connecting with people redemptively are what we call “missional communities.”
