In 2017, Matt was struggling with debilitating pain due to a herniated disc in his back. Because of this, he became very limited in what he could do as a member of the Lifesong Video Team. One Sunday, some of the team members gathered around him and prayed over his back. As there was no immediate change, he made preparations for back surgery. However, one day sometime later, he woke up completely healed and, as a result, canceled the surgery because there was no need for it!
