Matt Gruber currently serves with TCIIS in Outreach and Discipleship, expanding the training and education process into hands-on engagement in the community. He will offer opportunities and encouragement to participants to take the knowledge learned through TCIIS training and apply it by building relationships with immigrants, refugees and other local people demonstrating the love of Christ. Through these activities, head knowledge is moved to the heart allowing transformation to impact the giver as well as the receiver leading to radically changed lives.
Matt previously served as Director of Puentes with Crescent Project. After over 25 years of running his own business, he felt God calling him to return to the classroom. He attended seminary at Columbia International University in Columbia, South Carolina where he earned a Master of Arts in Global Studies. His focus is equipping the Church (including the Spanish Church) to engage with Muslims and others in practical and dynamic ways to demonstrate the beauty and uniqueness of the Gospel message.
