Beautiful Feet Ministries

Beautiful Feet Ministries was started in October 1981 when two students (Mike Myers and Johnny Buckner from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary) shared coffee, donuts, and the Gospel with some homeless men sleeping in the Fort Worth Water Gardens. These outdoor services, sometimes consisting of hundreds of homeless, continued until 1985. Soon the homeless were brought to local churches for services. It was quickly realized that the homeless needed a church of their own.

In 1985, a location was found on East Hattie Street that fit this need. The first floor was a soup kitchen operated by Franciscan Monks and a medical office run by Dr. Capper and volunteer nurses.The second floor was mostly abandoned besides the local pigeons who made this habitat home. Mike and the team renovated this facility and in 1986, Beautiful Feet Ministries was officially opened. Work continued and Beautiful Feet purchased and managed the facility.

Realizing discipleship was key to bringing men off the streets, the Sunshine House was opened in 1994. This discipleship program, held in a small home next to the main facility, focused on intense discipleship, accountability, and Bible studies.
