My name is Jessie Brown. I have grown up in Western Pennsylvania my entire life. Although I have attended church my entire life, I grew up learning how to give the right answers and do the “right” things. I did not recognize the weight of my sin, my need for a Savior, and surrender my life to Christ until 2012. When I entered into a relationship with Jesus, the Lord began to burden my heart to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with people who are often overlooked, the most hopeless of the hopeless, and called me into full-time ministry. After completing high school, I moved to Lynchburg, VA and attended Liberty University where I graduated in 2017 with a B.S. in Youth Ministries: Global Studies.

Upon graduating from Liberty, I decided to move back to my hometown, trusting that the Lord would continue to lead me to what He had planned. The day after I moved home, a woman from my church told me about a job opportunity to be a houseparent for international students at a private school. Never did I think that I would be using a youth ministry and global studies degree in my small town, but after interviewing, I was offered the position. I finished my time as houseparent of 20+ international high school students in June 2019. During my time as houseparent, I had the opportunity to build relationships with students and staff as well as share the Good News with them. Since finishing my time as a houseparent, I have been working as a cashier at a local grocery store until I move to the Philippines. 

While at Liberty, I had the opportunity to be on a short-term missions team to the Philippines in 2015. During that trip, the Lord started to burden my heart for the Filipino youth unlike anything that I had ever experienced before. I am an emotional individual; therefore, I was aware and understood that I needed to go to the Lord  for confirmation and discernment that what I was sensing was the Lord moving and possibly calling me to serve overseas and not only emotion. I then completed an 11-week internship in the Philippines in 2016 so that I could continue to seek where the Lord was leading me. It was after the internship that the Lord confirmed that He was in fact leading me to serve full-time with “urban” youth in the Philippines. All of that led me to contact different mission organizations and after months of doors closing, prayer, and searching on Google, I found ACTION. After many conversations, I applied with ACTION. In Spring 2018, I was commissioned by ACTION as a long-term missionary to the Philippines at Brand New Day. 

In July 2018, I had the opportunity to visit Brand New Day (BND). While at BND, I stayed in a shelter for young girls. It was very encouraging to see how the Lord is working at BND. I am very excited to join the team at BND! 

Not only did I have the opportunity to visit BND while in the Philippines, I was able to visit Robert Feliciano, the man that I have been in a courtship with since 2016. I met him while completing my internship but did not give him any extended thought until the Lord confirmed that He would have it for me to pursue serving in the Philippines. We got engaged during my 2018 visit. Robert is currently serving as a houseparent at BND. After getting married, our plan is to serve at Brand New Day together for as long as the Lord allows. 

Throughout my entire life, I have stood in awe by how the Lord has shown me His faithfulness.  I have been able to look back to the moments where I was hopeless and broken and use them to share with others how God is able to transform lives. I am continually humbled that the Lord would choose to use me in His story to further His Kingdom in this way.
