Mathis Family: Alumni Success Story

Planting churches in the city they call home

Micah (’03) and Courtney (’02) Mathis are following God’s calling on their lives and planting a church in St. Louis. This isn’t the first church plant they have worked with—upon graduating they both taught school in the St. Louis area while helping plant a church in Eureka, Mo.

Years later Micah was called to serve in full-time ministry. The couple quit their jobs and moved to Connersville, Ind., where Micah served as a worship arts and discipleship pastor for five years.

While there, they grew their family, and have had three daughters.

Micah recently completed his church planting residency training in Chicago through Harvest Bible Chapel Fellowship, and they have moved back to St. Louis to plant Harvest Bible Chapel St. Louis South.

Micah and Courtney Mathis are now following their love for St. Louis and Christ, serving in a capacity far greater than they imagined.

A story of shining on.
