Chaplain Brown leaving for South Pacific Ministry!
The ministry at the Cook County Jail is lead by founder and executive director Rev. Rob Brown. He is currently serving as a full time Staff Chaplain in Division Eleven, the largest division at the jail. There are about 12,000 inmates currently housed at the jail and over 120,000 inmates are processed through the facility every year.
CFCI supervises 35 weekly services in English and Spanish utilizing 75 assistant chaplains and volunteers in 7 different divisions. Our agency has the most comprehensive ministry at the jail. We are also responsible for the distribution of Bibles for the entire complex. Included is ministry to: families of the inmates, inmates who are transferred to state prisons, and ex-inmates upon their release.
Internationally, CFCI has traveled around the world to every inhabited continent and more than 35 countries to minister the Gospel, help the poor and distribute Bibles to those who either cannot obtain a Bible, cannot afford one or both including those in the persecuted church. We have established permanent Prison Training Institutes on five continents and sent teams to minister inside the prisons and train potential chaplains by giving Prison Training Seminars.
We pray that the Lord will sustain and prosper this work according to His purpose and will.
