Matt and Michelle Brown's heritage is one of rich spiritual DNA and a strong picture of many Christian denominations coming together.
It is no wonder their passion is to unify churches and denominations around the cross, and carrying the message of the Gospel to those outside the Church.
Matt's ethnic heritage includes Italian Catholics who were known for praying for their future ancestors, and German Mennonnites, including one ancestor who served as the first missionary to China for the Anabaptist Mennonite movement in 1909 and even spent time in prison for spreading the Gospel.
Michelle's family comes from a line of preachers, one of her ancestors was ordained by John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist denomination. Michelle's grandfather, G. Mark Denyes was the founding Pastor of Emmanuel, a mega-church near the Twin Cities, while it was still just a few families meeting in the basement of a home. He served as the Lead Pastor there for nearly 45 years - seeing the church grow to what is today one of the largest Assemblies of God churches in the nation.
Matt and Michelle were both impacted by a several year long revival that took place just before their twenties in the town of Delano, Minnesota. God moved powerfully on a group of Catholic youth who met for a weekly worship night. This student-led gathering soon included band members from various denominational backgrounds, including Baptist, Lutheran, Catholic, Assemblies of God and Evangelical Free. For several years, 4-600 students gathered in worship each week in a Public High School with a population of 650 students. Church groups drove in from several hours away for a one hour worship night, as they heard of what was taking place. For an entire school year during this time, zero disciplinary problems were reported in the entire student body. Many students experienced the Presence of God, many Biblical miracles took place and countless people turned to follow Christ as a result of what took place.
