Becoming a Christian in a church pastored by Gospel Music legend Gary McSpadden was obviously an influence in a teenager’s life. Matt Hybarger has over 20 years of music ministry under his belt with artists such as Steven Curtis Chapman, Steve Archer, Allen Asbury, Scott Krippayne, Rich Mullins, Michael O’Brien, Gary McSpadden, Michael English and many others. Matt spent 17 years in pastoral ministry before embarking on this new ministry taking a message of hope, restoration and redemption across the nation.
Matt is probably best known for the When Life Gets Broken project which yielded 2 Top 10 Singles, “When Life Gets Broken” and “Never Alone” as well as Hybarger’s anthem “Run To His Arms” which peaked at #14 but has spent an incredible 225 weeks on the Christian Music Weekly Inspirational Chart.
