Saturday November 21st, 2015 was the 2nd annual MSP Fun Fest with Dunbar Kids and it marked the final event of the year. It was a very brisk wintry day, so attendance was lower than expected, but everyone who came out had a blast; from the the smallest child to the oldest adult. Saved, St Lien, and MiNiMe did a fantastic job performing on stage as DJ G kept the music blasting. Over 25 people showed up to volunteer and gave generously of their effort and time. Four people gave their life to Christ and several others were able to fill out a Hot Sheet for additional assistance.
Men Standing Positive would like to thank the follow organizations and individuals: Concept Remodels for the advertising sponsorship, the Rock Church in Soulard for the free clothing and Thanksgiving meal, DJ G with New Life Music, Blanks Bounce House, East St. Louis School District 189, Dunbar Elementary School, and Principle Coleman for the facility, gift baskets, and support. And last but not least, to everyone who came out- participant and volunteer, without everyone working as a team this event would not have been possible. The Men Standing Positive team can hardly to wait see what next year has in store for Dunbar Elementary and the kids! Be on the lookout for the highlight video coming soon, and read below for what some had to say about MSP Fun Fest 2015! Click Here to View the Photos!!
‘Til Next Year…See You on the Streets!
As an educator, I encourage my students to ‘pay it forward’. They had a chance to see words turn into action. The Fun Fest was just an inspirational sight to see. MiNiMe is awesome and I look forward to volunteering next year.
~S. Keeler, PLD Teacher
Fun Fest was awesome! I think it’s awesome that MSP finds a way to reach the community. One thing that they always do is feed people. Even if it’s just a bag of chips. It’s funny how food brings people together. Not only that, but the sound is always great. There just seems to be joy and peace in the atmosphere whenever MSP throws an event. You can’t say that about every ministry. I have done events all over the city and I’ve seen a lot of things. A ministry that is consistent will stand long. My hat goes off to MSP and what they do for the city. MSP Fun Fest was nothing different. It is what is to be expected from MSP! Any event full of Jesus, full of God, full of joy, full of love, full of peace, and smiles.
~ St. Lien, MSP Fun Fest Artist
This is by far my most favorite event of the school year. Not only does it allow me the opportunity to fellowship with members of the community, but MiNiMe is such an inspiration and motivation to the students. His ability to leave such a profound and long~lasting impression is truly something to be admired.
~C. Coleman, PLD Principal
Matthew 25:34-40 “Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’
Matthew 25:21 “His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful slave. You were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.’ ”
He can say it better than I. Great work for His Kingdom. Glad to be a part.
~G. Collins, The Rock Church in Soulard Volunteer
It was refreshing to see a young artist give back to the community. Everything was top notch and I can’t wait until next year.
~C. Johnson, PLD Parent
Amidst the chaos going on in East St. Louis, the murders, and recent teacher strike- an underground awakening is happening. Now that the smoke from the strike has cleared and students have returned to the classroom, many are calling for change. Local leaders, parents, and students are beginning to take a stand for their community- recognizing the impact they have in their own neighborhoods to make a difference. Last year Men Standing Positive spent fall 2014 on the streets of East St. Louis and in the Washington Park community doing outreach, a block party, and a conference- the movement was titled Impact East Side. This year they were invited to return to Dunbar Elementary School and host MSP Fun Fest for the students, parents, and all staff. East St. Louis Senior High School and Mason Clark Middle School have also been invited to join. The free event Saturday November 21st, 2015 from 1 pm – 4 pm includes live music by local St. Louis rap/hip-hop artists: St.Lien, Saved, and MiNiMe, DJ G on the 1’s and 2’s, a bounce house, as well as a Thanksgiving dinner,and clothing giveaway provided by the Rock Church- Soulard campus. In addition, program information will be available for those interested in job training, counseling, rehabilitation, career coaching, and more. Men Standing Positive partners with a variety of programs in St. Louis to offer extra assistance for those in need; some primary examples are Crisis Nursery, Mission St. Louis, Connections to Success, and Slate. You don’t want to miss MSP Fun Fest 2015! To RSVP click here. If you want to volunteer- please click here and send us a message- someone on our staff will contact you shortly. See you there! Let’s #ImpactEastSide together!
MSP Fun Fest was the beginning of something bigger then we can imagine. This is right at the forefront of changing the murder rate or teen pregnancy and the other statistics that haunt us. This is also a way to put God first in our communities again. –Pastor Frank Jackson, MSP Fun Fest Host
The feedback I received from the Washington Park/Trinity Outreach Kids was that the MSP Fun Fest gave them the feeling that they were like leaders, and they had the power to make a difference and possibly fix the community. They said they felt like they were doing something important. They also said they wished that the program would have lasted a little longer than it did, so that they could continue to come up with ideas to make the world a better place too. I believe that all of the greater east side metro areas should have much more production models such as the MSP group. Coming through towns spreading love, clothing. – Kevin “KB” Borden, Trinity Outreach Center
MSP Fun Fest 2014 in one word –> EPIC!!! We would like to specifically thank the following groups and individuals for making this event a success: T-Jones, The Rock Church Soulard, Living Word Church, DJ G with New Life Music, Dunbar Elementary School and Staff, all other volunteers, and our MSP Partners. Without everyone’s help and dedication the Fun Fest would not have happened- so thank you! Watch below if you missed out on the fun!!
‘Til Next Time… See YOU on the Streets!
