Paul-MatheniaPaul G. Mathenia, D.Phil.

My passion is to proclaim the truth of God’s Word to the end that God will be glorified and souls will be transformed by the power of Jesus Christ.  It has been my privilege since 1973 to serve as senior pastor in nine of the Lord’s churches in Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Maryland.  In November of 2013 I moved to Mountain Home, AR to devote more time to this seminar ministry as well as writing and teaching.

I have also served as a short term missionary in Haiti and Russia through preaching and teaching evangelism and systematic theology to local pastors and church leaders.

My educational background includes a bachelor’s degree from Mid-Continent University in Mayfield, KY with a major in Bible; a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) from Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary in Memphis, TN; and a Doctor of Philosophy (D.Phil.) from Oxford Graduate School, American Centre for Religion/Society Studies, in Dayton, TN.  The Discover Your Destiny seminar was the basis of the research conducted in my doctoral studies.  Seeing the results of the research led me to begin this ministry with the purpose of helping people prepare for their eternal destiny by sharing the biblical teaching about life, death, and beyond.
