What is Dwelling 1:14?

The name Dwelling 1:14 references John 1:14 and the incarnational, missional nature both of Jesus and of those who would follow Him into the world. Dwelling 1:14 is a nonprofit ministry which helps like-minded Jesus-followers connect in their neighborhoods, workplaces and schools for discipling and missional living.

Mission in real life

“I have known Greg since 2008. He’s not just talking about multiplying missional communities, he’s doing it.”

Will Mancini

“Greg brings a rare combination of passion and insight for helping people practice missional living. I have seen the fruit of his work first hand.”

Dr. Jock Ficken

“Most of us know or have a sense that “things aren’t working the way they used to work” in our congregations.  And, most of us are experimenting and pressing on new things...Greg understands what’s going on and can help build a “sending” culture in your congregation.”

Rev. Jeff Meyer

“If God has convinced you that the goal of your leadership in the church is not to get the community to come to church, but to get the church into the community; and, if you realize that you will need some encouragement and guidance from a brother who has become convinced of that himself and has navigated those waters in his own life and leadership, then Greg Finke and Dwelling 1:14 will be just what you need.”

  • "A Good Answer for a Misleading Critique"

    At the end of 2014, I was surprised to add up that my book, “Joining Jesus on His Mission,” had sold more than 10,000 copies since its publication in late February.  10,000 copies in 10 months.  Never saw that coming!

    When I wrote “Joining Jesus” my goal was simple: I didn’t want to write a theological textbook but a practical handbook.  I wanted to honor and stand on the shoulders of our best biblical theology without feeling the need to repeat all of it.  I wanted a...

  • It All Began on Christmas...

    [Here’s some Advent meat and vegetables to go with the sugar cookies.]

    We may sing, “All is calm, all is bright,” to celebrate Christmas, but Christmas is really D-day… the day the rescue mission of God launched into the created world.  Christmas marks the day God got Himself born into our created world.  Bethlehem was His beachhead.  By getting Himself born as a baby, He got Himself into the reality of the created world… and with a purpose.

    On one level a baby being born and placed in a...

  • “Why Getting to Know Your Neighbor is Important”

    Below is an email I recently received from a friend. He gave me permission to share it with you. It is poignant but powerful.  And like he says, “I think God does a lot of His work through our failures.”

    Here’s the email edited to remove personal names:

    Last Friday evening my wife called to tell me that our neighbor across the street died of a massive stroke. He was my age [mid-50’s].

    To say the neighbor was a friend of mine would be a big stretch. He was an...

  • “Dogs, Discipling and Why Our People Sit so Well”

    My dog sits really well.

    Unfortunately, that’s all she does really well. It’s not her fault. She's a victim of under-training. I know this because I am the one who under-trained her. She had the ability to be trained to do all kinds of things, but I didn't train her to do those things. Thus her designation as “under-trained.”

    On the other hand, she sits very well.

    I didn’t under-train her on purpose.  I did the best I could.  I simply did not know how to train dogs very well....
