Rev. Dr. Mathis was the Campus Minister at the University of California in Riverside, where for nearly ten years he promoted interfaith activity.  He received his M. Div. in theology from Fuller Theological Seminary and his Ph.D. in philosophy from Claremont Graduate University.  Faculty positions have included Associate Professor at Rosemead School of Psychology in California and at Northern Arizona University at Lake Havasu. Current interests include the metaphysical and psychological conditions that allow for interfaith dialogue, and the history and rise of secularism.  Relevant interfaith publications include Against John Hick: An Examination of His Philosophy of Religion (Lanham: University Press of America, 1985), and a Review of Christians and Religious Pluralism by Alan Race (TSF Bulletin, Vol. 7, No. 5, June 1984).

More recently he published "Sacred Scriptures and Interfaith Dialogue" London (2007) Leeds Metropolitan University Press. He has been to Antarctica three times with the United Stated Antarctic Research Program and accordingly has a keen interest in the relationship between science and religion.  Ordained with the Church of the Brethren, his pastoral expertise includes counseling and university outreach.  He is currently facilitating courses for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute with California State University, San Marcos, at Temecula.
