Andrea G. Mathis is a native of South Carolina. She earned her B.S. degree in Criminal Justice from the University of South Carolina-Upstate (formerly University of South Carolina-Spartanburg). Upon graduation, Andrea began practice as a paralegal where she has spent over twenty years of dedicated service towards resolving domestic affairs, mentoring interns, and maintaining an accommodating environment for clientele. In 2007, she founded Wee Warriors, Inc., a non-profit organization comprised of children ages 2-15 who minister through dance. In 2008, she received her ministry license and discovered a new passion centered on teaching adult learners in the local church. Inspired by this new found zeal, Andrea felt called to continue her education at Liberty University Baptist Theological Seminary where she received both her Master's Degree in Theology (MA) in 2010 and Master of Divinity Degree in Professional Ministries (M.Div.) in 2013. Andrea is a wife and mother of 4 children ranging in ages from 24 to 9. Using the same dedicative spirit she uses with her work and family life, she continues to minister and teach adult learners and currently is the instructor within the City of Hope Bible College. However, what makes her stand out among others is not just her diverse experiences and background. Her uniqueness is the compassion and understanding that she shows towards those venturing along the difficult track of pursuing one's goals while maintaining a career and running a family, especially under difficult and seemingly impossible conditions. As a mentor and spiritual counselor, Andrea has gained the trust and respect of many for her empowerment and support of the oppressed in spirit.
