Matthew Dovel will be our speaker May 26, 2023 via Zoom

Utah IANDS is excited to announce our May speaker Matthew Dovel, featured on ABC news 20/20 and Coast-to-Coast radio. 

Matthew’s first NDE at age 12 happened when he almost drowned. He was engulfed by a white light that permeated his very soul.

Later, due to tremendous trials, Matthew tried to kill himself and went to a dark place he describes as hell, from where he was redeemed and brought back.

This is a unique story of someone who has experienced the worst place, and the best place, in the very presence of Jesus.

Matthew is an advocate of suicide prevention and a frequent speaker. He lives in Las Vegas. Nevada and will be sharing his story via Zoom on our large screen, in our Conference room.
