Pastor Matthew Trewhella
Matthew Trewhella is the pastor of Mercy Seat Christian Church (MercySeat.net) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for 31 years. He and his wife Clara have been married for 38 years and have 11 children and 21 grandchildren. Matt was born in 1960, and raised in the city of Detroit, Michigan. His parents were divorced at a young age. He lived a life of sin and crime, including being part of a gang on the east side of Detroit. In 1978 he was converted to Christ - a radical transformation in his life - after being placed in Teen Challenge by the courts. He is a graduate of Valley Forge Christian College with a Bachelor of Science in Theology. Matt is the founder of Missionaries to the Preborn (MissionariesToThePreborn.com).

His actions on behalf of the preborn are what first interested him in governmental matters. Matt served 14 months in jail for interposing at the doors of abortion clinics. He is the author of the book The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates: A Proper Response to Tyranny and A Repudiation of Unlimited Obedience to Civil Government (DefyTyrants.com). His research and teaching on the lesser magistrate doctrine is reshaping the thinking of Americans. He was instrumental in publishing the Magdeburg Confession in 2012 - the first English translation of the document since it was written in 1550. Believing that Christianity should impact every area of his life and every area of life, his desire is to live a godly life by being a faithful husband and father and both build and leave a legacy through their family. He is at war with Pietism.

Usama Dakdok
Usama was born in Egypt and grew up in a Christian home. While in government schools in Egypt, he learned about Islam just as every other student does in a Muslim country. Usama studied for a university degree in Egypt which included the study of Sharia, Islamic Law. He first came to America in 1992. With his knowledge about Islam, he felt he could reach out to Muslim people in America with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Thus he began The Straight Way of Grace Ministry. 

Usama earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology and a Master’s Degree in Missiology from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Because Arabic is his native language, he discovered that the commonly used English translations of the Qur’an were full of misrepresentations that minimized its violent teachings as written in the Arabic text. He is the author of The Generous Qur’an, an accurate English translation; Exposing the Truth about the Qur’an, the Revelation of Error Volumes 1 & 2; and Exposing the Truth about Jihad, Holy War in the Bible, Volume 1; and the booklets “The Straight Way to Eternal Life” and “The Violent Verses of the Qur’an.” He also does a daily radio show “Revealing the Truth about Islam” on VCY, weekly TV broadcasts on Channel 30 and the internet, and is a conference speaker throughout America and Canada.Call: 941-223-3698
