Rev. Danny Lee Brake
Born Feb 6, 1951 in East St Louis, Illinois to David Otho Brake and Marie Rose Brake.
Danny had a tough childhood, but still remained always helpful to others in need.
He became a heavy equipment operator and was dying of kidney disease. Shortly after accepting Jesus, July 8, 1976, he received the infilling of the Holy Spirit and Jesus healed his kidneys completely. It turned his life around.
Over the years he worked at various jobs; his favorite was gardening, and running a vegetable market.
In 1983 he started in full-time ministry as a street evangelist, working with Gospel Mission in Salina, Kansas. Later at their request, he moved to Clyde, Kansas where he pioneered a church for the next two and half years.
In 1990, he began working with the Assembly of God church in Concordia, Kansas: men’s fellowship leader, praise and worship leader, and teaching a young people’s class. There he met his wife, Virginia, and was married in 1992.
In 1995 they graduated from Rhema Bible Training Center in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma then moved back to Kansas.
In 1998, he was able to work with another ministry to actually start a home for ‘at-risk’ kids, Tri-Family Children’s Home in Kenesaw, Nebraska. They lived in house 24/7, providing consistency for the boys aged 4-13, training in all areas: social, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, working with counselors, physicians, and school officials. The goal was to show Jesus by their teachings, example, and love. They also worked with parents, teaching them how to parent that particular child, to make it possible for the child to return home and maintain acceptable behaviors.
Starting 2001, he relocated several places as Ginny worked as a traveling nurse. Started Feeding programs and food pantries at several places, cooking, serving, ministering to the needy. He helped in ministry wherever he could. Danny said he felt called to “love the unlovable,” ministering to the homeless and to anyone in need.
2012 Danny’s health again took a turn for the worse, making it impossible for him to drive and travel anymore. They moved to Hemet, California where he continued to help in ministry at Family Faith Tabernacle in San Jacinto until he graduated to his Heavenly Home Feb 28, 2021 at age 70.
