Born January 11, 1972 in Spartenburg, SC, Shawn Mathis was raised in a military home. In 1979 his family moved to Colorado, became Christians and joined a local Charismatic church. After graduation, he joined the Air Force, read Banner of Truth and discovered a book labeled, Ten Points of Calvinism. After an honorable discharge in 1994 he found the author of that book and attended Providence. There his life was challenged by preaching, by friends, and especially by his lovely wife-to-be who challenged his charismatic ways. Over time, others in the church recognized God’s gifts and nominated him for deacon, then ruling elder. Finally, Dr. Coppes brought Shawn under his godly and learned wings, mentoring him for the ministry.
Pastor Mathis was a former news and opinion writer for a national news-source, until he wrote one too many articles on gay marriage. He tutored critical thinking and apologetics for homeschoolers. He currently writes at PastorMathis.com. He is available for Bible Study and questions about the bible (303.900.2027).
