Rich Brown

Rich was born in Ecuador to missionary parents (Milton and Patricia Brown). He graduated from the Alliance Academy, where he met his wife Elisa Shannon (daughter of missionaries from Argentina, Jack and Jean Shannon). Both graduated from Toccoa Falls College. Rich graduated with a degree in Missiology. Rich and Elisa were married in 1990, and less than a year later, moved to Raleigh, North Carolina, where Rich served as youth pastor at North Ridge Church for almost four years. During that time, he finished the ordination process with the Christian and Missionary Alliance and graduated with a Masters Degree from Wheaton Graduate School in Biblical and Theological Studies. In 1995, Rich and Elisa moved to Peru, where they served for ten years as youth pastor missionaries in four different churches in Lima and Trujillo. Rich also taught in the Bible Seminary in Lima and Trujillo. He was the Executive director of the Seminary in Trujillo for one year. He taught World Views, Evangelism, The Book of Hebrews, and Missions, among other courses. In 2005, Rich and Elisa became regional youth missionaries in Ecuador, Peru, and Colombia. In 2006, they started Inca Link and that organization is now serving in four countries (Ecuador, Peru, Colombia, and the United States). Rich´s calling is to reach the 300 million youth in Latin America with Christ´s irresistible love. Rich and Elisa have four children who have been intimately involved in the Browns’ ministry: Olivia, Michaela, Josiah & Alexa.
