Each life has defining moments. And for Brad Mathias, his couldn’t have come a minute too soon. Brad tells Dennis Rainey how his self-obsession led to his failed marriage, but even that didn’t detour him off his destructive course. It wasn’t until a middle-ear condition landed him in the hospital that his heart began to turn to the Lord, and he experienced God in a powerful, life-changing way. That sets the stage for the the Holy Spirit led trip he took his family on that would turn life around for everyone.
Dr. Brad Mathias is president of Bema Media LLC, the parent company of iShine, the world's largest preteen Christian media group. He also serves as co-pastor of the Four Winds Anglican Mission in Spring Hill, Tennessee. Survivors of an almost-divorce, Brad and his wife, Paige, have been married for over twenty-two years and are the parents of three teenagers. Blessed with a redeemed marriage and a restored home, Brad is actively engaged in public ministry to families in crisis.
