More about Dale Brown 
Founder & Executive Director


My life mission is to fervently love God and people, expressing that love frequently, and persevering in it forever.

I desire to be used by God to help others on their journey with Christ as we grow into his likeness in whatever context, place and life situations God chooses, thus fulfilling the Great Commandment, the Great Commission, and the Cultural Mandate.

My Life Verse is Romans 12.12:
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
