In the Spring of 2017- Tiffany was only two days away from being homeless and losing every physical item that she owned. She felt completely hopeless and alone. In addition, the seasonal job she had was also in jeopardy due to no weekly reliable transportation. Tiffany was out of options. An MSP case manager stepped in- offering resources, encouragement and even correction. Swiftly, everything began to turn around and Tiffany stepped out and took the steps and initiative to change her life. She was connected with a temporary living space right near her work so she wouldn’t lose her job. On Friday July 28th, 2017 Tiffany completed and graduated from Connection to Success’ 3 week intensive Personal and Professional Development course! During that time frame- she connected with many people, enhanced professional skills and regained hope for her future. Today- Tiffany is pursuing God’s plan for her life while also seeking a more stable living situation, steady job and gaining a vehicle of her own.

The closing of one year and the beginning of the next marks a period of significant transition. For Men Standing Positive, 2015 brought about many difficulties, shifts, and also victories. God has a plan and He is always good. This year the team spent their time in Ferguson, South City, Soulard, and in East St. Louis, IL. Over 22 people accepted Christ this year and we were able to place several others in church homes and programs for additional assistance. Below are a few highlights of 2015 we wanted to share with you-
We cannot thank our partners, sponsors, and volunteers enough for all they do to help make the mission and vision come to life. Without your support and involvement, none of this would be possible. So thank you! The Men Standing Positive team is extremely thankful, blessed, and eager to see what awaits in 2016. But until then, we hope you have very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year with your families and friends! May God bless you this new year and always.
Love, The MSP Team

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
Saturday August 1st, 2015 the Men Standing Positive team prayed with many on the streets; two accepted Christ, and three filled out MSP Hot Sheets for extra assistance. It’s not everyday you get a chance to do street ministry with those truly led by the Holy Spirit and bold enough to unashamedly share God’s love. MSP Ministries has the great privilege of working with dedicated volunteers who even understand how to reach people most everyone would completely disregard. Many lives have been touched because someone on our outreach team had the courage to speak to them or even simply smile. Nowadays in our busy society, everyone seems to pay more attention to their phone than the person walking next to them or waiting in line at the store. Outreach isn’t just across the world in a foreign land; outreach is about reaching those at your job and those in your own neighborhood. You are surrounded by those people for a reason- you possess the love of God inside you and the ability to share it. So be bold- let the love that conquered the grave out for the world to see. It’s what they desperately need, they just don’t realize because they can’t see it. So show them- be bold.
Until Next Time… See YOU On The Streets!
