Dr. Mathis

WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. – Dr. Don Mathis addressed University of the Cumberlands students, staff and faculty at the opening convocation for the school year. Mathis is currently serving his second term as Kentucky Baptist Convention President.

“On behalf of the KBC, we consider it an honor and a privilege to be in partnership with University of the Cumberlands,” Mathis said.

Mathis shared scripture with the audience from Matthew 9 and Luke 15 to explain the relationship God wants to have with each individual. “If you’ll dare let Jesus be the Lord of your life, I assure you He’s got a whole lot better plan for your life than you could have ever imagined,” Mathis explained.

Mathis is the former pastor of Central Baptist Church in Corbin, Ky. In addition to serving as KBC President, he serves as an evangelist preaching nearly 40 revivals a year.
