Mat and Amy Kountz
Status: Serving in Ecuador
Mat and Amy are currently serving in Cuenca Ecuador with their children - William, Lina, Jude, and Oliver. Mat completed an MA in Missiology at Southern Seminary and an MA in Church Planting at Southeastern Seminary and is doing Doctoral Studies at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Missions and Theology, hoping to finish his first doctorate in 2019. The Kountzes intend to train and mobilize Ecuadorian pastors and missionaries to reach their own neighboring communities as well as peoples beyond the borders of Ecuador. The way they work towards this goal is church planting, partnering with church-planters and local church leaders, and training leaders in formal and informal manners including the founding of a formal Bible School in the major university city of Cuenca.
