Matthew Mills

Pastor Matt has known the Lord most of his life, having given his heart to Christ as a young boy. He surrendered to the ministry in October 1988 at the age of 22. He entered full-time ministry in 1991 and has served three previous churches before assuming the position of Senior Pastor at Mt. Pleasant on March 1, 2017. He is a native of Columbus, located in Polk County, North Carolina. Pastor Matt has been married to his sweetheart, Donna, since 1987. They are blessed with three children; Jonathan, Michael, and Brittany. They count it an absolute joy to serve and worship the Lord alongside the good people of Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church.

Laura Thompson

Laura has been a member of Mt. Pleasant since she was a young girl. In 1994, Laura began her music ministry as the youth and children’s music director, and then in 2000, she assumed responsibility for the adult choir as well. She enjoys beautiful melodies, as well as toe-tapping up-beat songs, but believes that the heart of any song is the lyrics, because the lyrics are the message, and where the worship is.

God has blessed Laura with a wonderful, loving family. Mike and Laura have been married since 2004, and in 2008 they were blessed with twins, Abigail and Lukas.
