- Cultural Reconciliation
The Captive Ministry was started in 2007 after a violent and tragic summer in Milwaukee. Moved with a passion to see lives, families, and neighborhoods experience the lasting change that comes through relationship with Christ, the Lord called Richard and Aurelia Brown to start The Captive Project.
The work started by using summer outreaches as a way to reach the communities and assist churches with building relationships within their communities—and since 2007, both urban and suburban churches have partnered together, to host these events. Although The Captive Project now facilitates a number of initiatives in addition to the outreaches, the vision remains the same, to see Christians united to transform lives and cities for the Glory of God for the purpose of fulfilling the mission of Christ.
Since 2007, The Captive Project has…
