We believe the foundation of hearing from God is when we:
- know our identity and freedom in Jesus
- know we are children of Father God
- know Holy Spirit desires to work in and through us
God is always talking to us in many different ways. The key to hearing clearly & confidently is discovering the unique way that God wants to communicate with us. The beauty is as we spend time listening to God our lives change. We learn more about our destiny, our worth, and most importantly how much we are loved by God because of who we are, not what we are!
Our aim is to see the church equipped and encouraged in and through the Prophetic.
That you can learn to 'Hearyourway'.
'Hearyourway' is an international Prophetic ministry that has grown out of a vision to see all people confident in hearing from God for themselves as well as hearing for others.
Matt is married to Laura and they have two wonderful children. As a family, they seek to hear God in all areas of their lives. Their children love sharing what God speaks to them about!
Professionally, Matt's background is in the youth work sector. Specifically in areas such as addictions, homelessness, youth offending and safeguarding. In more recent years he has been a youth minister and a school Chaplain within the Anglican church.
The Prophetic first fascinated Matt after he experienced others moving in it. He was captivated by specific and accurate words of knowledge and from this started to seek God's heart for people. Those who have inspired Matt and who model Prophetic lives include people such as Canon Andrew White, Shawn Bolz, Heidi Baker, Brian Simmons and Nate & Christy Johnson. Matt loves how others are an inspiration to us by what they carry - but seeks to build others up so they know they are an inspiration!
Matt believes the most exciting aspect in hearing from God is that we can all do it! Each and everyone of us have access to hear, and, as we are all so unique we all hear uniquely. The joy is in finding out what works for us!
There are many stories Matt could share of how sensitively sharing words from God has changed lives, broken through situations and encouraged others in a way that only God can do.
One of Matt's biggest desires is to see the whole church fully operate out of a Prophetic culture day-to-day. He specifically has a heart to encourage young people and leaders. He longs to see all people confident in the Prophetic, as well as growing in wisdom and discernment and operating out of a place of rest and joy.
The Reverend Canon Dr Andrew White
It has been an honour and joy to have had the opportunity to get to know Matt.
As I have spent time with him I have come to know a man who is confident in his Christ-identity and humble in heart. He is a great Godly man with a hunger for the deep things of God, a passion for authentic Christian living and a heart to give to the poor and to reach the nations with the deep, tender love of Jesus.

Matt is passionate about equipping and enabling others to engage with God through both a mentoring and Prophetic ministry. He is able to come alongside others and offer timely and appropriate support, that inspires and speaks into situations in a real and relevant way. He is intuitive and sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit, and is prepared to speak truth in a way that gently challenges and yet also affirms others in the sight of God. If you take the opportunity to work with Matt be prepared to be inspired.
Rev Helen Johnson
Founder & Leader
Matt is a man of great integrity. He is utterly trustworthy and has a maturity beyond his years. He is also great fun, with a wonderful sense of humour.
He has a real prophetic gift and moves in it boldly and with great sensitivity, both around believers and non-believers.
He has a compassion for others to know God’s love and His purposes for their lives.
He is a good listener and is extremely patient, kind and loving with people, no matter what their circumstances.
He really is a leader, who inspires others, not just to move in the prophetic, and shows them how they can do so, but in valuing what it is to be a son and a daughter, and thereby know their identity and significance, above any works they might try to do to prove their worth.
He is a gem of a man!

I am delighted to be able to endorse this ministry. Within Matt I see someone who has a vision to journey with people, particularly leaders, and help them thrive and become all that God has made them to be.
He relates particularly well to the millennial generation ie 18's to 30's, but not exclusively so. His zest for life and down-to-earth nature and Prophetic voice will be a blessing across the generations, I'm sure. I look forward to fanning the flame of all that he's about!
