Rob Wegner served as a teaching pastor at Granger Community Church for 21 years, calling the people of God to get out of their seat and into the Story. Under his leadership, Granger has seen thousands move out into mission, culminating in redemptive movements locally and globally. These ventures include local expressions like Monroe Circle Community Center, a hub for neighborhood renewal in the inner city of South Bend, Indiana and a movement of over 1000 reproducing churches in India with over 140,000 reached people.

Rob has worked alongside Alan Hirsch in an innovative coaching program called Future Travelers, which has served more than 250, some of which are among the most influential churches in America. His first book, Share the Well, which he co-wrote with his wife, Michelle, is an eyes wide open experience through visually stunning photos and captivating stories of the holistic church planting movement they helped birth in India. His second book, Missional Moves, which he co-wrote with Jack Magruder, is a part of Zondervan's Exponential Series.

Currently, Rob lives in Kansas City and is on the elder team of Westside Family Church, where he is advancing the Jesus movement both locally and internationally through the development of training pathways to equip people to live as missionaries where they live, work, and play, along with the development of simple churches in those settings. Rob and Michelle have three amazing young ladies — Madeline, Whitney and Belle.


Workshop Session 3: Pipeline Creation: Developing the Bi-Vocational Planter
As a result of declining attendance and the closing of many existing churches, every major denomination is focusing more resources towards starting new congregations. In the midst of this proliferation of church planting, one of the most significant trends is the starting of new churches by bi-vocational leaders. They are making this decision out of the conviction that bi-vocational church planting actually provides a more desirable way to plant a new church, rather than on the basis of limited funds. In other words, it is becoming a first option, not a last resort. In this breakout learn the philosophy behind creating a bi-vo pipeline of planters and discover how to best resource and send them into Kingdom activity.
