In 2006, Pastor David left a career in business to pursue a call into full-time ministry. He began on the streets of the Twin Cities, meeting the hurting where they were- under bridges, in parks, near shelters. His passion for bringing the lost into a saving relationship with Jesus can be seen in the growing family of programs that today make up Breakthrough Ministries. David continues to be a vital part of Breakthrough Minneapolis every week in addition to overseeing Breakthrough Ministries. https://breakthroughmn.org/
Needs Closet Coordinator
This wonderful, spirit-filled lady leads our efforts to provide basic needs to our guests. Each Sunday at 7:15, she creates a prayerful, joyful atmosphere while her team meets one-on-one with each guest to find out how we can help them.
Janie has been with Breakthrough longer than most of us! She has an intense passion for seeking and saving the lost, an ear to hear from God and powerful faith. From serving our volunteers to preaching to running the dishwasher, Janie steps in wherever she’s needed.
Laura is with us most Sundays, serving, smiling, chatting, helping. She sometimes fills in as our Dining Room Coordinator, directing the volunteers as they serve, and she has a special gift for planning big stuff, like our Christmas party. Laura has a heart of gold toward our volunteers and guests!
Pam’s compassion and experience with crisis management and knowledge of local resources for those affected by substance abuse and mental disorders make her a great advocate for our guests at Breakthrough Minneapolis. Pam also leads Thrive! Family Support, a ministry that helps families who are impacted by the devastating affects of addiction. www.thrivefamilysupport.org
Paul- our Mike Zimmer look-alike bus driver- has a longing to reach out to those who have struggled with substance abuse and other destructive life choices to help them rebuild relationships with their families and with God. In addition to helping out at Breakthrough Minneapolis each Sunday, he leads an outdoor adventures ministry for folks who are struggling. www.wildheartsadventures.org

While taking an injury-induced break from driving the Breakthrough bus, Steve is helping out with security on Sunday nights. He is a faithful, faithful member of our team! We’re so grateful that Steve documents each week’s dinner and worship with many pictures on Facebook.
