He is an editor at Moody Publishers and a contributing editor at CTPastors.com, a Christianity Today publication.

He is also the author of several books, most recently Just Show Up: How Small Acts Of Faithfulness Change Everything (A Guide For Exhausted Christians).
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO SHOW UP FOR WORK…
When you wonder, “Can architecture, design, and development make a difference in the Kingdom of God?”
When you question, “As followers of Jesus, how do we show up when addressing complex social issues at home and work?”
When you ask, “How do we glorify God, serve our family, and bless others when we’re stretched to capacity?”
Keynote Speaker Drew Dyck responds to these questions with the encouragement to:
JUST SHOW UP.
God doesn’t require us to change the world. He only asks that we be faithful. We don’t have to be perfect, just present.
God does incredible things through the persistent presence of ordinary people.
He also gives us small but meaningful ways to show up for family and friends, and for the work God has called us to do.
“We tend to think it’s the big, bold moments that matter. In reality, it’s the steady accumulation of small acts of obedience to God that add up to a life of meaning and impact.”
JOIN US IN MONTANA
as we explore ways that followers of Jesus can JUST SHOW UP to address the complexities of our culture, the pressures of our profession, the duties of our daily lives, and the joys of co-creating with God.
