Automotive specialist shifts gears to saving lost souls

After 15 years of keeping cars and trucks on the road, Nate Bean, owner of Integrity Automotive Maintenance & Repair in Issaquah, discovered his true calling had little to do with changing spark plugs or servicing radiators.

The North Bend resident has joined forces with a local prison ministry that reaches out to men and women who may have lost their way. The stamps on his passport trace missions to three continents and more than seven countries in less than 36 months.

Bean’s curbside ministry dates back sharing portions from the gospel on the sidewalk outside Bellevue Square.
