“I just got heavier into the streets. In and out of jail my whole life. Habitual violent offender or half dead in a hospital like five six times been shot at. Countless times I’ve had bullets grazed my head. I’ve had a gun jam in my face. See my friends die in front of me. I’ve seen it all. I’ve been through it all. I’ve done it all.” – Rene Martinez, Gang Leader and MMA Fighter

Watch the story of a notorious gang leaders radical encounter with God and his mission to reach out to others on the streets with the love of Christ

One day, while he was recording music in his garage, he clearly heard Jesus say, “I spared you for such a time as this. I saw my whole life flash before my eyes – when a gun was jammed in my face when a bullet whistled by my ear – I almost died five or six times – and all my friends that died. God set me free for a reason. I repented right there,” he recalled.

Rene “Level” Martinez is now a pastor preaching to gang members, prostitutes, drug dealers and on the streets. He believes that if he was able to get free from life on the streets, that God could also free others through his testimony.
