Abe Brown Ministries Inc

A nonprofit organization

In 1976, Coach Abe Brown picked up a newspaper and was shocked to see that one of his former football players had been charged with murder. Upon visiting this young man in prison, Coach Brown realized that he had taught young men how to play football, but he had failed to teach them how to live. Deeply moved with the tremendous spiritual needs of those confined to penal institutions, Coach Brown committed his life to spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ so that young men will know God’s rules of life. Coach Brown was eventually called to God’s Vineyard and became "Rev. Brown."

Our vision is to establish excellence in prison ministry, beyond an offender's release. As formerly incarcerated citizens transition back into the community, Abe Brown Ministries offers an environment of compassion that will provide a residential safe-haven and transitional training. In conjunction with preparing these individuals for productive living, we build relationships with employers in the community who will gainfully employ graduates of the program. 

Please help us furnish two newly renovated homes and one new construction home on May 1 for Give Day Tampa Bay 2018!
