Matt Trewhella is pastor of Mercy Seat Christian Church (founded in 1988) in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area and founder of Missionaries to the Preborn. Through his research and teaching on the biblical duties of the lower magistrate, Pastor Trewhella came across the Magdeburg Confession, an important historical work that became the first in the history of mankind to set forth in a doctrinal format what only later came to be known as the Lesser Magistrate Doctrine. Pastor Trewhella has been actively and successfully promoting the doctrine of the lesser magistrate as the solution to many problems including the travesty of abortion. Pastor Trewhella and his wife Clara live in the Milwaukee, WI area. They have eleven children.
