Rescued from 27 years of active addiction, Matt received freedom and victory through faith in Jesus Christ alone. Having been saved from the streets himself, Matt was sent back to share with all people the Good News of a Savior who makes His people whole. God led Matt to found Be Bold Street Ministries for this very purpose. Matt is out on the streets every day, sharing the hope of Jesus with a lost and dying world.
Keith has been traveling internationally since 2012 to fulfill Jesus's command in Matthew 28 to make disciples of all nations....and all means all as Jesus desires all to come to a saving knowledge of His sacrifice. He has trained many pastors and church leaders in a discipleship model that teaches and challenges new followers of Christ to ask the Holy Spirit to help understand scripture and to share their testimony to family, friends and neighbors. It is very humbling to watch God use these new disciples to witness to His lost children.
After 20 years of addiction, Christ met Josh in E Block cell 288 at the Oregon State Penitentiary. Through the grace and power of Christ, Josh has been free of addiction since January 11, 2011. He was called to go back into the darkness that Christ saved Him from and is now a certified counselor, works with the Salem Police to deescalate interactions with the homeless community, and has been with Be Bold Street Ministries since 2016.
I am so thankful that God has allowed me to serve as treasurer for Be Bold Street Ministry.
As long as I can remember God has given me a heart for the downtrodden He has placed in my path. I was not raised in a Christian home but Jesus reached into my life as a young person and has been shaping and molding me through the years for just this purpose. I count it a privilege to serve alongside the BBSM team as we reach out to a lost and dying world with the only hope that can give lasting peace-Jesus!
Trapped in the darkness of addiction with intense feelings of unworthiness and not belonging from the age of 12, Carly sought help from different resources and at many years clean and sober she still carried much guilt and shame and fell to addiction once again. It was at the point of complete hopelessness that she cried out and just as He promises, God heard her cries. Today she seeks God first before all things and has a heart transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She has seen firsthand that there is no case too tough and no heart too hard that God can not intervene and create beauty from ashes. Her passion is to reach out to the lost and share with them the hope they can find in Jesus.
