In 2009, Dr. Caparrelli along with a team of people planted a church in Rhode Island known as Sacred Exchange Fellowship. This church was a hospital for the spiritually sick, attracting hundreds of people with addictions, criminal backgrounds and mental illnesses. The church lived out its mission stated in Isaiah 61:3.
Dr. Caparrelli resigned from pastoring in 2009, handing the torch over to one his trusted elders. Since then, he has traveled the entire nation with his message of redemption and restoration from mental illnesses. He speaks in prisons, colleges, churches, and Adult and Teen Challenge Centers. He is the founder of UnMuted, a non-profit organization that gives victims of trauma their voices back.
Dr. Caparrelli holds a Bachelors in Bible from Zion Bible College, a Masters in Education from Liberty University and a PhD in Advanced Studies in Human Behavior from Capella University.
From April 2022 to July 2023, Dr. Caparrelli conducted a 100-hour, 34 Session, analysis of David Berkowitz, formerly known as the “son of sam.” The analysis focuses upon the mental health factors and demonic influences behind senseless violence. More importantly, the analysis highlights the miraculous transformation of a psychopath. This analysis is now available in a book entitled, Monster Mirror: 100 Hours with David Berkowitz.
Dr. Caparrelli authored 5 books that all relate to mental health from a biblical viewpoint - Dr. Jesus, Pen Your Pain into Parables, Surviving Feelings, The Ox and the Ass and Monster Mirror. He is also a professor of behavioral science courses at Northpoint Bible College in Haverhill, MA.
Here’s David, a lifer at Shawangunk Correctional, who still scratches his head about what “possessed” him decades ago in a city that has mythologized his crimes ever since. May I warn you that when you meet David, you will not look into the eyes of a monster, but a mirror. I present to you: Monster Mirror
Then, while in prison, the man once known as the "Son of Sam" became a born-again Christian. He's since spent hours sharing his story with well-known pastor and behavioral scientist Michael Caparrelli.
