Easy as 1, 2, 3!
On Saturday June 7th 2017, MSP staff and volunteers gathered inside Jubilee Community Church to pray and prepare for afternoon street outreach in North City. A young man named Terrance had just moved back to St. Louis and was walking down the street stopping at local businesses to see who was hiring. Something told him to come inside the church as he was walking by. When he came in, everyone thought he was simply showing up to volunteer. Terrance came directly down the aisle up to the front and re-dedicated his life to God. He then spent the afternoon on street outreach with Men Standing Positive. Terrance was immediately connected with an MSP case manager who directed him to Jubilee Church so he could start being discipled and receive any needed food, clothing and hygiene items. Shortly after that Saturday, he was placed in a job working for Jubilee Services; a professional service company offering lawn care, landscaping and construction for both residential and commercial property across the St. Louis region. After approximately 5 months, he transitioned to another landscaping company after receiving the necessary the training.
Many people consider the topic of evangelism to only apply to pastors and a skill only mastered by religious schooling and formal training. Both of these viewpoints are not accurate- the Bible clearly gives countless examples of men and women who effectively evangelized many people and led them to Christ. These individuals were not pastors, trained in school nor did they hold degrees- they were everyday people just like you and I. Their lifestyles spoke of Jesus- in words and actions. Multitudes saw the authenticity and love that filled their daily lives. Every Christian is called to evangelize and it’s not intimidating or difficult as one might think.
Please just Men Standing Positive Saturday October 28th for the 2017 MSP Effective Evangelism Conference from 3pm to 6pm at Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in East St. Louis, Illinois. Paztuh Mike Wuebbles will be bringing a candid message with practical instruction on how to reach those you meet who don’t know Christ. Watch below for further details. Invite your friends and RSVP today! For more info, please call 314-690-3077 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

MSP Street Report – June 3rd, 2017
Saturday marked the kick off date for Men Standing Positive’s 2017 outreach and event season. Before those gathered had even left the building, a young man walked in. At first everyone thought he came to volunteer, turns out he had just moved back to St. Louis and was walking down N. Grand looking for a job. He said something told him to come inside the church- so he did. The man came directly down the aisle, rededicated his life to God and spent the afternoon with MSP on outreach.
Soon after, everyone split up into small teams and headed out into the neighborhood. Between going door to door and flagging down cars to hand out flyers for the MSP Total Transformation Conference: 1 person received Jesus and 7 MSP Hot Sheets were filled out for those looking for a church home and others needing assistance. RSVP below to our next outreach and event dates.

Dear Potential Personal Partner,
Throughout this life you will have numerous chances to make a difference in the lives of others: your family, friends, and total strangers. Right now, Men Standing Positive is offering you the opportunity to reach entire low-income communities in a powerful way using our unique system. Founded in Saint Louis, Missouri, our mission is to empower and inspire people by bringing wholeness, change, and a peace of mind through various community outreaches, events, and programs.
Men Standing Positive strategically acts as a third party filter to screen and connect the individual/family to the resources and help they need. We partner with those who provide homeless shelters, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, temporary housing, counseling, job training, utility assistance, domestic violence programs, spiritual development and more. The goal is to successfully unite the individual with the appropriate available resource(s); therefore strengthening and building the community as a whole.
In addition, Men Standing Positive also reaches out and connects with neighborhood churches in the local community before we do our outreach and events. Our policy requires that we cannot connect an individual/family with job training and assistance programs until we first place them in a church home. A dedicated church family is absolutely vital for support, love, and encouragement as the member seeks to follow God, resolve major life issues, and also obtain other necessary help and training. Our unique system works to help people in every area possible: spiritually, emotionally, and physically.
Men Standing Positive believes that impact starts one individual at a time. We want to connect with people, such as yourself, who desire to make a difference in lives across the city. We are currently active in low-income communities throughout North St. Louis City, South St. Louis City, East St. Louis Illinois and Washington Park Illinois reaching men, women, and children of all ages. Men Standing Positive regularly sends updates by way of email, mail, website, blog, and social media so you can see where your money is going.
