whatever you did for one of

the least of these

you did for me

Matthew 25:40

The least of these

Give a man a fish and feed him for a day.

Teach a man to fish

and feed him for a lifetime.

One Person at a Time.

Abe Brown Ministries compassionately demonstrates the love of Jesus Christ by helping offenders and ex-offenders, as well as their families, achieve productive and fulfilling lives. We provide comprehensive services to help members of our community establish an intimate relationship with Christ, as well as offer support in acquiring life-skills and preparing for gainful employment. The end result is productive citizens within our communities, which ultimately improves the quality of life for all.

Rev. Brown believed in making a difference in the lives of others by taking action. His motto to create change – “It’s your move.”


Matthew 4:19, "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men."
