Success Story // Meet Tiffany

Tiffany

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.

Carry the Cross with MSP: Dare to Take a Stand for Christ!

Saturday June 10th, 2017 marked something special.  Not only was it the first Carry the Cross with MSP of 2017 but a city aldermen saw us from the local Fairgrounds park and came over to join us; walking up and down North Grand.
Local rap artists Reuben Jones, Rob Redeemed and MiNiMe (sound courtesy of DJ G & New Life Music) stopped on street corners to give short performances followed by personal testimonies of what God has done in their own lives.  During one stop, Rob Redeemed shared the story of how God completely healed him of cancer.  A couple nearby heard his testimony and almost immediately gave their lives to Christ.
Lives were affected that day.  Many stopped to stare, a few glared, some took photos and video, while still more were reminded of a faith in which they had lost all hope.  7 MSP Hot Sheets were filled out with those seeking various types of community assistance programs, job training and placement into a church home.
                    Until Next Time…. See YOU on the Streets!

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-

  • In the spring, we created and released our very first video testimonial, called the ‘MSP Transformation Report’. Sean’s life was radically changed over a couple months as he attended Mission St. Louis’ Job and Leadership Training Program; graduating at the top of his class in the fall of 2014. Mission St. Louis is just one of the many programs we partner with to help reach people and transform lives. Be on the lookout next year for the testimony of a woman instantly set-free from depression, self-harm, and a suicide attempt. In a few short minutes, the truth of Jesus changed her life forever. We can’t wait to share her story with you.
  • After many years and piles of paperwork, Men Standing Positive receiving their 501(c)3 certification in July 2015. This will open a variety of opportunities in the near future with corporations, small businesses, and other organizations.
  • Last but not least, MSP gained two new sponsors- Concept Remodels and Saint Louis Christian College. Both have already assisted us in many ways- from monetary contributions for advertising, meeting facilities, event support, and more. For additional information on each please visit the Sponsor page on our website or blog.

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

2nd Annual MSP Fun Fest with Dunbar Kids// Event Highlights

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

2015 MSP Total Transformation Conference Recap

Saturday August 15th, 2015 Pastor Frank Jackson delivered a powerful and timely message to those who came out to the MSP Total Transformation Conference.  Everyone who was there received something to apply in their daily lives.  Pastor Frank spoke on the renewing of the mind through God’s Word.  Any lasting change in your life has to start on the inside and work its way outside.  Simply adjusting an outward behavior will not permanently fix anything if your beliefs are faulty and not founded on God’s truth.
Earlier that afternoon, several people went out into the neighborhood to let anyone else know about the conference who might have wanted to come.  A whole family showed up with their children and even some friends.  They were able to connect with Pastor Ken at the Rock Church and also filled out MSP Hot Sheets for some additional assistance.  Last but not least, the Rock gave them extra food to take home for the coming week.  The entire MSP team would like to thank all the volunteers who came out and the Rock Church in Soulard for providing the building and dinner; without their help the conference would not have been possible.
Until Next Time… See YOU On The Streets!

Boldness in Love // MSP Outreach Street Report

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!

Leadership Starts Off In The Back // #IMPACTEASTSIDE 2015

Sunday March 22, 2015, the Living Word Church in Washington Park, Illinois celebrated its 7 year anniversary.  Pastor Tommy Smith Jr, his wife, family, and congregation had spent the weekend reminiscing on the past years and looking forward to the good things to come.  Sunday afternoon service marked the final celebration to end the extended anniversary weekend.  Guest speaker, Mike ‘MiNiMe’ Wuebbles delivered a powerful and timely message titled, Leadership Starts Off in the Back.  Drawing examples from the story of Joseph, MiNiMe explained that leadership doesn’t happen overnight, it’s a process filled with ups and downs as God prepares you for your destiny. When Joseph first had the dream, he wasn’t anywhere near ready to lead a nation and its people. However, after being in charge of a prison and Potiphar’s house, God developed within him the wisdom and skills necessary to fulfill his calling.  Everyone in the congregation was able to take away a practical piece of insight from the message.  Men Standing Positive looks forward to the continued partnership with the Living Word Church and Pastor Tommy to leave a lasting impact in the Washington Park community.
In addition to ministering from the pulpit, MiNiMe was also able to minister out on the street that afternoon.  Shortly before the service began, one of the congregation members asked MiNiMe to walk across the street to talk to some people sitting out on their driveway.  The two of them crossed the street and began conversing with the group.  Because MiNiMe was all dressed up in a suit for church and even had on a mic, the men were intimidated, annoyed, and tried to start an argument.  They assumed based on his church clothes that MiNiMe had come to argue with and condemn them.  During street ministry it is vital that you relate to people on their level.  The service was about to begin, so MiNiMe quickly stopped the conversation and promised the group he would return after the message.  Immediately following the service, MiNiMe went back across the street. This time, the conversation went an entirely different direction.  Two of the men ended up getting saved, joined the church, and signed up for assistance programs on the MSP Hot Sheet.  Despite the rush and distraction, MiNiMe was able to minister to the group as God moved on their hearts.
