Matthew Jones is very transparent as he tells of his victories and defeats in a lifetime of spiritual warfare as a street preacher, college counselor and businessman. Born and raised in Knox County, Indiana, he repeatedly faced violence. As a young teen, Matthew heard the voice of the Lord, and turned from a path of destruction. He experienced miracles as a Jesus freak on the ghetto streets of Chicago and East St. Louis. As a Full Gospel Businessman, he administered the power of God in the midst of great hardships and demonic attacks. Eventually, Matthew, battle-worn and weary, retired from active duty and survived to tell the story.
“Three Days in Hell” is a dramatic play resulting from Matthew’s studies of secular and biblical history. Matthew brings to life ancient characters to whom Jesus preached for three days. Chris Sandel wrote the professional forward.
Finally, in a “Heart Speak,” Matthew shares poetry and prose. Again, his transparency is evident as he communicates mountains and valleys of emotion.
Matthew Jones holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Greenville College. He served as president of the Jasper, Indiana chapter of FGBMI for 9 years. After serving as college counselor, insurance agent and computer salesman, Matthew suffered a severe head injury and subsequent loss of his 25 year marriage and business. He has gained success in the stock market using a strategy called “Power of the Penny.” He now lives in Tulsa, recently remarried. His copyrighted Christian Tee shirts and jewelry are available. He is available to speak to church or business groups about following the leading of the Holy Spirit.
