Jarrod and Allison Brown
Jarrod and Allison began serving the people of Honduras as a missionary couple in 2003. They considered their very first task an important one - to put down roots in the country they committed to serve. Connecting with local leaders in the community, they saw unmet needs and potential opportunities. Mission Lazarus was founded in order to leverage the strengths and resources already in existence and to support and develop local leadership through relationship and mutual accountability.
Jarrod is the current CEO and graduated from Abilene Christian University with degrees in International Business and Spanish. He is passionate about holistic development as an effective hybridized approach to ministry and business. Allison graduated from Vanderbilt University with a masters degree in nursing. As medical director, she safeguards the quality of all medical, dental, and social services that the organization provides through its medical and dental clinics, as well as the Refuge, a group of homes for vulnerable children.
After living and working nearly 10 years to develop a sustainable leadership model in Honduras, the Browns have been available to focus their efforts in Haiti. They continue to play a consulting role for key leadership in their own organization, as well as provide consulting services for other organizations from their home base in Franklin, Tennessee. Their awesome kids, Sol and Levi, are travel and language enthusiasts.
