Beautiful Feet Ministries is getting bigger with construction beginning on an approximately 11,000-square-foot facility located west of the organization’s location at 1709 East Hattie St.
“We’re very pumped about it,” said Mike Myers, pastor and director at Beautiful Feet.
The building will house a gym and worship area, laundry and shower facility, a kitchen, offices, and storage space, all to help serve the homeless and inner city youth of Fort Worth. Myers said he expects the facility to be open by fall 2017.
Beautiful Feet has been helping the homeless since 1981, offering food, medical and dental care, spiritual guidance and other services free of charge. But the organization’s work doesn’t end there – Beautiful Feet also trains the homeless to give them work skills in order to become independent. Along with helping the homeless, the organization also offers Bible studies and ministry programs for young people living in the inner cities of Fort Worth.
It’s Beautiful Feet’s way of living out the Bible verse from which the organization got its name, Romans 10:15: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”
“Beautiful Feet is taking lives off the streets and giving them a help-up instead of a handout,” Myers said.
