Rev. Faith Lavon Brown
Rev. Faith Lavon Brown, the eighth of eleven children, was born in Richlands, Virginia, to Rev. Robert and Eunice Brown. She came to New York City in 1967 in response to a call for action from Rev. David Wilkerson. Rev. Faith led CURE Corps, a community outreach on Fox Street in the Bronx where drug addiction was rampant. It was through CURE Corps that she met Dr. Ben and Irma Alicea-Lugo, and joined them in the Seekers ministry which flourished under their leadership. Faith’s passionate love for the youth of this city was evident in her commitment to the Seekers fellowships on high school and college campuses. She was known for her radical call to cross-cultural ministry and the lordship of Jesus Christ. Faith went to be with the Lord in 1988, but left behind a strong legacy and foundation for Seekers to continue to grow and prosper to this day.
