Chris and Misty Brown
Chris and Misty Brown have committed themselves to servant leadership throughout their marriage. Chris was raised in a minister’s home while Misty was introduced to Christ as a teenager, through a local youth ministry. Chris went on to serve as a worship leader for over 17 years, and they both share financial and administrative experience from various industries and non-profits.
While serving on church staff together, they were introduced to Coreluv in 2013 on their first mission trip. After returning with hearts wrecked, they realized that their capacity to love had increased exponentially. This prompted them to take action; they began the process of fulfilling a long-held desire to become foster/adoptive parents. However, this proved to only be part of a greater work God was performing. One year later they were presented with the opportunity to join the Coreluv leadership team, pioneer the school of missions, and oversee the existing summer internship program. They left the security of their positions to empower and train missionaries that will be sent around the world to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ and to rescue and defend the orphan.
January of 2015, they started organizing for the summer internship and preparing for the first class of SOM students. With Mike and Mandy Reiszner, they officially launched Coreluv School of Missions the following August. Now, Chris, Misty and their three children (Devin, Olivia, and William) are living in the fullness of a desire to use what’s in their hand to defend the orphan.
