Here’s The Backstory To The “Jesus Saves” Guy in Uptown Charlotte (Video)


If you’ve been in Uptown Charlotte more than once over the past few years, chances are you’ve heard Sam Bethea’s booming voice proudly proclaiming “I’ve got good news!”, “Jesus Saves!”, and “He loves ya guys!”.

Sarah Blake Morgan with WBTV recently caught up with Sam and asked him about his backstory and why he was so dedicated to telling people about Jesus;

He first started preaching on the streets of Uptown Charlotte in 2015 and he’s become an increasingly common sight ever since.

His voice is so loud that people in the office buildings around Trade and Tryon have commented that they can hear him even through their windows. Back in 2016 during the BLM protests and riots, he could even be heard above the crowd’s chants of “no justice, no peace”;

Have you heard Sam before?
