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.
Starting in 2014- Men Standing Positive began working alongside Principal Coleman and the students at Dunbar Elementary. MSP Fun Fest is not just your average free event with live music, food and a bounce house. It’s an event designed to reach the students with a positive message through music. So not only do they have a great time but they leave having learned why they need to remain in school, why they need to respect authority and so much more. The students also hear that they are the agents of change to reach their local community and it all starts now- even while they are in elementary school.

June 24th, 2017:
Don’t judge me! You don’t understand! This isn’t my fault! You don’t know what they did to me!
“The number one enemy of change is blame.”
“Correction is painful.”
“What you can tolerate, you will never change.”
Saturday marked the first main community event of Men Standing Positive’s outreach and event season. The 2017 MSP Total Transformation Conference was a powerful and impactful evening for all who attended. Over 50 people of all ages came out from the North St. Louis community to receive a positive message, clothing, dinner and get connected with local program resources. Praise and worship was led by Momentum
– followed by a relevant and practical message by Mike “MiNiMe” Wuebbles
. Each and every person, regardless of age and background could relate to the truth and insight he gave on what it takes to discover, reach and experience a life of transformation. Growth is painful, change is painful but true freedom lies on the other side of making the choice to never go back. It all starts in the mind. MiNiMe encouraged every single person listening to stop letting their past and bad habits control their present and destroy their future. At the end, several came up for prayer and one person accepted Christ.
Men Standing Positive’s entire staff would like to thank the following for their hard work and dedication to make this conference possible:
– Senior Leader Joel Hedlund & the Entire Team
Finally, each and every single volunteer who came and spent their valuable time and talents to keep everything moving along! THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts!!
Be on the lookout for a recap video coming in the next couple day and the message for sale on DVD later this year!
Until next time… see YOU on the streets!

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.

This year they were invited to return to Dunbar Elementary School and host MSP Fun Fest for the students, parents, and all staff.
