LOUISVILLE—The Kentucky Baptist Convention has named Matthew Mofield as the new campus missionary for the Morehead region.
Mofield will have the dual responsibility of engaging and discipling students on the Morehead State University campus, while also enlisting and equipping Kentucky Baptist churches in the surrounding region to reach students between the ages of 12 and 24 with the gospel.
“The Collegiate Ministry team is an integral part of the Evangelism and Church Planting Team and is focused on helping churches engage one of the darkest, most strategic mission fields in our world: the Twelve24 Window,” said KBC Collegiate Evangelism Strategist Brian Combs. Mofield’s “diverse church experience along with his passion for reaching the Twelve24 demographic will serve Kentucky Baptists well in this position.”
Mofield is pastor at the Richmond campus of Center Point Church, a multi-site church based in Lexington. He joined the Center Point staff in May 2015 after serving more than two years as associate pastor to youth and young adults at Pleasant View Baptist Church in Waynesburg.
“Matthew’s experience sets him apart for campus ministry and church partnership,” said Pleasant View Pastor Kyle Page, who described Mofield as a Christ-like example and mentor to both students and adults.
Mofield worked for the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service in Somerset, before answering the call to ministry.
He holds master’s degrees from Eastern Kentucky University and Liberty University Baptist Theological Seminary in Lynchburg, Va. (KBC)
