Rich & Elisa Brown / Inca Link

Born and raised as missionary kids Rich and Elisa Brown found each other in high school at the Alliance Academy in Ecuador. Then they went to Toccoa Falls College and started dating. Rich studied and graduated with a degree in Missiology and Elisa with Interpersonal Communications. The two were married on June 23, 1990. One year later, the couple moved to Raleigh, North Carolina, to serve as youth pastor and wife at North Ridge Church. In the four years spent there, Rich completed the ordination process and graduated with a masters degree in Bible and Theology from Wheaton Graduate School. They soon found themselves in Costa Rica and then moved to Peru in 1995. After 10 years of ministry in Peru, Rich and Elisa witnessed the growth of the Alliance youth from 30 in one church to over 1000 in three churches. God continued to use their gifts and talents in different parts of Peru until 2005. In 2005, they began their ministry in Ecuador, beginning a network of youth leaders in Ecuador, Peru and Colombia. The plan: To connect youth groups in North America with youth groups in South America through short-term missions. They are called to reach the 300 million youth in Latin America with Christ’s irresistible love. Elisa is part of a Christian Rock band called Corban, which opens all kinds of doors for youth ministry in Latin America. Rich and Elisa have four children: Olivia, Michaela, Josiah and Alexa. All of their children are intimately connected to the Brown’s ministry, especially with short-term teams as translators, Corban and helping in the orphanages and garbage dump ministries.


New Inca Link Canadian Office!


The mission team has an exciting announcement.   Inca Link now has a Canadian office.  You might say why is that such an exciting announcement?  Well for years now we have partnered with Rich and Elisa Brown and Inca Link.  We've been sending short term teams, supporting them financially, and even sending two of our young adults on a 9 month link year internship.  Through all of this we have had to juggle the administrative and financial details through the US office.  Now with a Canadian office we will be able to have a more seamless relationship and a simplified process for supporting the inca link ministries.   On top of that, one of our own, Melanie Horning, is part of the board here in Canada.  We are super excited that this will make it easier for us to support ministries in South America.  

We also want to remind you that during this pandemic, our IW and national workers have been working hard to continue reaching out to those in need of the gospel and compassion around the world and here at home.  Please remember that your prayers and support are a vital part of their ministries.   You can support our missionaries through the Global Advance fund or by supporting them through their respective ministries.   Please contact the office if you would like more information regarding the missions and ministries we support here at Gateway.




We've partnered with Compassion Canada and 165+ children are being sponsored in our partnered rural area of Ecuador. Praise the Lord! 

Gateway has also partnered with National Workers Graham and Erika Hynds with Power to Change, Charlie Lyons with Leading Influence, and Doug and Sheryl Braaten with Teach Beyond Ministries and Open School Worldwide.
