Beverly Brown – Prayer Team Coordinator/Board Secretary
Beverly Brown has been a Christian since 1975 when a friend first shared the plan of salvation with her. Since that time God has been working in her life to transform her into Christlikeness. She would be the first to admit that she has a long way to go, but God has brought her this far and He continues His work in her life. Not only is Beverly Set Me Free Ministries prayer coordinator, but she is also Mom to the two co-founders, Stephanie and Joy. Beverly has been involved in prayer ministry in several of the churches she has attended, including her present church where she is a co-leader of a Sunday morning prayer group. One of her favorite scriptures comes from Acts 4:12 where the disciples proclaim these words: "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
