Frequently Asked Questions

Our Founder

Brandon is married to the love of his life, Erin, and together, they share the joy of raising three amazing boys. Brandon's journey began with a childhood dream of working in real estate. However, destiny took an unexpected turn when he landed what he thought was his "dream job." Yet, amidst the comfort of his aspirations, a divine intervention occurred.

One day, God's voice reverberated within him, gently whispering, "this is your dream for your life, but this is not my dream for you."

Guided by faith, Brandon embarked on a transformative journey that led him to Brazil, where a prophetic word illuminated his path. Then, in April 2022, his life took an unforgettable turn with his first visit to Pakistan. There, he bore witness to the harrowing reality of an estimated 3-4.5 million Christians held in slavery, toiling in brick kilns, enduring unspeakable atrocities, and being stripped of their humanity.

In that pivotal moment, God ignited a flame within Brandon's heart, burdening him with an unshakeable passion for a country and its people who lacked an advocate. It was out of this divine calling that the non-profit Exodus 5:1 was born. Through unwavering dedication and relentless pursuit of justice, Exodus 5:1 emerged as the beacon of hope, leading the charge in liberating enslaved souls from the clutches of oppression.

Together, these endeavors form the tapestry of our collective mission—a symphony of compassion, courage, and unwavering determination to rewrite the narrative of suffering and injustice.

Three Pillars

We stand on three pillars that illuminate our path as we navigate through the complexities of our mission in this country.


We are always going to rescue people out of slavery

At the core of everything we do lies the solemn commitment to liberate individuals from the shackles of slavery. It's a conviction deeply rooted in the belief that no human being should ever endure the dehumanizing agony of being owned and treated as mere property. Regardless of race, color, or creed, we fervently believe in the inherent right to freedom. Each month the rhythm of our organization's heartbeat is to rescue those ensnared in the clutches of oppression.


We have a church for a beacon of hope and continued support

In tandem with our mission of liberation, our church stands as a beacon of hope, embodying the resilience and compassion of its members. Within its walls reside some of the most extraordinary people. Their unwavering faith, boundless compassion, and tireless dedication to our cause infuse every aspect of our work.


We have a school where around 250 kids are taught to read, write, etc.

And then there's our school—a sanctuary of learning and transformation. Each day, it hums with the echoes of hope and potential as it welcomes hundreds of eager young minds, many of whom were once trapped in the clutches of slavery. In the classroom, we plant the seeds of knowledge, believing wholeheartedly that education is the cornerstone of a brighter tomorrow. We envision a future where these once-forgotten children, destined to languish in the mire of despair, rise as pillars of strength and resilience in their own right, shaping the destiny of their nation.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do people become slaves?

Nearly everyone is born into slavery without knowledge of how their families entered it. In most cases, the cycle continues with each generation becoming the property of the owner. We've only encountered one family sold into slavery. Their story: the grandfather passed away owing a debt to a hospital. Consequently, his son, wife, and children became slaves, to a debt that they didn’t owe.

Why don't slave owners just say no when you offer to buy their slaves' freedom?

The slaves hold significant value for them. Any children a slave has automatically becomes part of their property. However, according to the existing laws, if we step in and settle the debt obligation against a family, they are legally obligated to release them to us.

Aren't you supporting the slave industry by purchasing them?

The slaves are far more valuable than the debt owed to their owners. Their labor generates substantial income, and any offspring are also considered property. Thus, the cost to purchase a family's freedom is minimal compared to their lifetime productivity and that of future generations.

What happens to a family once they are freed?

This is a crucial part of our work. If not handled carefully, satisfying a family's debt doesn't set them up for a new life. After paying off the debt, we obtain legal paperwork from the slave owner, akin to reclaiming a car title. Our legal team files this paperwork with the local government, assigning each person a Pakistani Identification number. Then, we connect them with a church family for community support, provide rent-free housing for six months, and supply six months' worth of food. During this time, we help them find work and assist their children with education.

Is there a risk that the slave owners could come and put them into slavery again?

The only reason they are legally able to be owned is because of their debt obligation. So, when we satisfy that and register them as people and not property, they have rights under the law. The previous owner will not and cannot have a claim over them. This is why legally ensuring the debt obligation and registration of these contracts is such a crucial part of the process.

Have you encountered any families unable to adapt to their new life and ending up back in slavery?

So far, we've never seen a family struggle to adjust to life beyond slavery. Born into it, they embrace freedom when given the chance. With six months of housing and food support, plus guidance from our pastor partners, they adapt remarkably. These hard working individuals transition from laboring long hours for little pay to jobs that sustain their new life. Though we haven't had to step in, our pastor partners are ready to assist if needed, ensuring their success in their newfound freedom.

Why is education so important?

Education is one of the most crucial components because it serves as a foundational tool for success. Typically, any group of people held down is due to a lack of education. When you cannot read or write, you become dependent on others. At that point, you are unable to advocate for your family or function effectively in a society where literacy is vital. Moreover, you are limited in accessing jobs that could elevate your standard of living above the poverty level.
