Pastor Scott & Di Mathis

Pastor Scott Mathis was raised on the Wyoming frontier.  Growing up training horses with his father and older brother he has spent much of his life on horseback.  The son of a country preacher, Scott rejected his godly parent’s teachings and left home at age 14.  Going the way of the world, he began a long drift into drunken debauchery, and majored in history at University of Wyoming in a vain attempt to disprove Christianity.  Meanwhile, his parents were faithfully praying and in 1990, after five years of constant marriage struggles, Scott and his wife Di were gloriously saved. 


Scott has been a Berean pastor for 25+ years and is currently the President of the Berean Fellowship of Churches, but he is still a cowboy at heart and loves to compete in team roping.  Di loves to play pickleball.  Scott and Di have been coming to Wickenburg for several winters and have seen a growing need for another life-giving church in the area. They are so excited to see how God will work through Church at Rancho Rio.  They've been married 38 years and have two children (both married) and four grandchildren. During the summer months they live in Davey, NE. Every day they marvel at how God has saved them, changed them, and allowed them the privilege of being a team for Jesus!
