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. Mat was recently accepted into the Doctoral Studies at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, but will not start Doctoral work until after language and culture acquisition. 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. By God’s grace, the Kountzes would love to see the Word of God greatly increase in Ecuador in depth and width. To this end they are working with the Cuenca missionary team and local church leaders to start a Bible college and theological seminary in Ecuador’s university city that can train Ecuadorian pastors church planters and missionaries.
