My Biography

Matthew Senn grew up the son of a Jewish Father, but after his parents divorced when he was young, his mother began attending a charismatic church. This provided Matthew with a unique spiritual background. Matthew committed his life to Jesus Christ at a very young age, and as he grew older, he aspired to become a lawyer. However, God had other plans. In 1997, God placed a dream in Matthew's heart to be a healing evangelist. Given his Jewish background, this was the last thing on his mind. If God were truly calling him to the healing ministry, then God would have to display His power through Matthew in a special way.

Matthew attended Southeastern University at Lakeland, Florida in 1997, graduating in May 2000. It was here that God began training him for Ministry. Under the guidance of Pastor Reggie Scarborough, he learned the importance of being led by the Holy Spirit. Matthew also had the opportunity to serve Benny Hinn's ministry, and traveled domestically and internationally with Benny's youth pastor, Joe Manno. Matthew was Ordained in 2007.

Matthew's ministry began to take off in 2002 after moving to Marion, Indiana. The Lord began to use him to release dramatic healing in people's bodies. Matthew and a college student often shared their passion for God with other students, so they began having weekly meetings where they prayed for the sick. This ministry, called Faith Alive, quickly grew from two young men, to an attendance of 80 to 100. Through this ministry, and his ministry through the local church, he began to see tumors disappear immediately. Blind eyes and deaf ears were also opened.

The Vision of Matthew Senn Ministries is to be used to restore the healing and miracle ministry of Jesus back into the local church, and to teach and equip people to be used in healing based on the Word of God which says, "And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will…lay hands on the sick and they will recover" (Mark 16). Matthew also has a desire to be used to restore families, and those who are bound by depression, anxiety, and various addictions.

Matt, thank you so much for all that you do. You have been such an inspiration and blessing to me. Not only have you touched my life, but you have touched the life of my mother, both of my sisters, and my best friend. The Lord has really blessed you with an awesome gift and it blesses me to watch you use it with BOLDNESS!! I have seen such great miracles take place because of your courage to step out in FAITH! I have seen you come such a long way and I know that you will go so much farther because you work through the HOLY SPIRIT and you have sacrificed so much to plant seeds in the lives of others. God bless all that you do! I'm very proud of you and praying for you everyday. Your friend, Wendy - Marion, In.

Like King David, Matthew is "a man after God's own heart." He is quick to forgive others, and has a strong determination to yield to the cleansing purifying work of God in his life. I admire his ability to be led by the Holy Spirit. Matthew carries a special anointing that allows him to present the Lord as relevant, real, concerned about the bondages of his children, and powerful enough to deliver and set free. Matthew, you are a good friend. My family has been blessed in so many ways because of our relationship. Remember, "he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed." Kelvin - Swayzee, IN

Matt, What can I say? I have been healed to the uttermost after 2 years and 9 months of continuous pain from an infection in my spinal cord. It was stealing my life. I hadn't worked or functioned in daily life since Christmas eve 2005: the day that my body started producing atibodies and trying to kill my spinal cord and most of my internal organs. My wife and I spent 2 weeks at John's Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD. We came home with a diagnosis of Transverse Cervicle Myolitis and no hope of a full recovery. I had heard about the powerful service that was had the night before and came expecting a friends deliverance and healing. That Friday night at a youth revival in Muncie, Indiana, little did I know that I had a divine appointment with GOD. I had been prayed for, for healing and was confessing healing. I had no idea that GOD was going to speak my name to you and under the the healing annointing of GOD himself, working through you, I walked away a new man...........totally healed.
I am ready to let this test now be my testimony. GOD BLESS YOU as you continue on your journey with HIM. JOE - Muncie

Matt, I want to thank you for your boldness and your obedience to do what God has called you to do. You have taught me so much in the last couple of months. I now, at the age of 21, know what it’s like to be completely free from a disease that I was diagnosed with at the age of 5. I was diagnosed with Chronic Cushing Syndrome and at the age of 17 the doctors did an MRI and found a tumor on my pituitary gland, at the base of my brain that was causing me to have the disease. Life for me had always been hard. But one night at a youth revival that you were leading, God preformed a miracle in my life. I was also having trouble with my gallbladder and was in constant pain. But you took my hand and told me to start receiving. At that very moment I felt an intense tingling sensation in the center of my head. It then started whirling around my head and within a few seconds it felt like electricity shot through my body and went out my toes. I then realized that I was not in any pain at all and I had not felt that good in a long time. I didn’t feel human. I literally felt like I wasn’t in my earthly body. Since then I haven’t even had any symptoms of the disease and no problems what so ever with my gallbladder. All I can do is praise the LORD and thank him for what he’s done. Thank you so much for your wisdom and guidance. It’s because of the POWERFUL anointing that you carry that I am now able to walk in COMPLETE freedom and be all that I can be for Christ and the fulfillment of His kingdom. May God bless you and your ministry!

Your friend,

Bro Matt
My wife Roberta & I Leo were in the service last Sunday in Muncie. You called out "soneone there that had a back problem, and God was going to heal you today." Roberta got up as you called out to that person. You said God was healing her back condition just as she was standing there." I later came up to stand for my Mom with Asthma, say I had a hip problem coming into the service, that was gone from you praying over my wife's condition, my condition changed. Later that day when we arrived home in Cincinnati, OH she begin doing laundry, dishes, cleaning, like normal, Prior to last Sunday she could harldy do anything. I havn't seen her reach for her back not once yesterday or today. She is out shopping as I'm writing you. We feel blessed to have met you through Larry Williams invitation. I understand your to be in the Ft Wayne, IN area this Saturday, hope to see you there. God Bless You

Matthew, I am remembering the little boy who was only 5 years old getting up on a box and quite charismaticly preaching the word of God to his younger brother and sister. You have come a long way my son, but always throughout your life, God has been primary in your heart. That you continue to listen deeply to the voice of God within your soul, through all life's trials and tribulations is a testament to your annointing by spirit, and to your utter surrender to the calling of God. I am proud of you, and excited for you that life is using you in this special and blessed way. Keep listening to the voice of God. Know also how precious you are to me. I love you Matthew, your second mom, Jane.

I just returned from one of Matthew's meetings at a Church in Fitchburg, MA. I had arrived late, still in Uniform (I am an Army Reservist & Drilling this weekend). I felt like I stuck out like a sore thumb, as one doesn't expect to see an old Soldier like me to come into a Healing Service on a Saturday night. Of course, nobody seemed to mind. I told Matthew that I was believing God to heal me of Bipolar II disorder, and that when I retired (I will retire in 3 1/2 Yrs. @ the age of 60 as a Federal Civilian and Army Reservist), I wanted a Ministry to visit and pray for healing for people in Psychiatric Wards, because I had been a Patient on one @ a V.A. Hospital once. Of course I want to pray for healing for anyone suffering, especially psychologically, just as I had once suffered. I am very stable and functional on Meds and in good Therapy, but as a Spirit-Baptized Believer, I believe Jesus wants me completly healed and made whole. Yes, I gave Matthew a very brief version of what I just wrote down, and Matthew prayed for my healing and that God would also give me the desires of my Heart (ministry-wise). My dear Jesus, did I ever feel the Presence of God so strongly when he prayed for me! I stubled back about six foot-steps, and my legs were shaking so much, that I figured I just should have fallen out under the power of the Holy Spirit like so many others were! It's completely OK, though, as I got my Blessing, and then some! The power of the Holy Spirit there was VERY, VERY Strong! I volunteered to catch people, along with some others, as they fell out under the power! I still feel that very sweet presence now, as I write this. Many people were healed - It was very moving. That was a VERY blessed time! Thank you, Matthew, for obeying your calling from the Lord!
