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.
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.

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!

Warren Lund is a faithful servant of the Lord Jesus Christ. He grew up in a Christian home and attended church regularly. As he grew older he found himself fully caught up in the sins of sex, drugs, and alcohol with feelings of hopelessness and despair. He felt there was no way out and this was all his life was to be, hopeless, unworthy, painful and lonely, full of destruction. It was in 1991 that Warren fell on his face before God after a bitter divorce and fully accepted the gift of salvation. He was a changed man. He wants others to know the journey is not always easy, but with Christ, it is possible. There have been times when he has questioned his own salvation. In these moments he was lead to Salem Heights Church and biblical counseling. There he learned that we must have a heart transformation, not behavior modification. He is now serving on the board of BBSM, is a group leader for The Most Excellent Way Victory group, men’s bible studies, and enjoys serving on the D6 children’s team. He knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that nothing can separate him from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
