Authorities report that the church members were released 72 hours after the capture. Haiti is known to be plagued with violence and kidnapping in the aim to get ransom from syndicates operating across the country, which has led to the demise of the country's economy. 

Gregory Figaro, whose father, Greger, is the founder of the ministry, told the Miami Herald that eight to 10 gunmen arrived in two vehicles and kidnapped the pastor and three others, including a pianist.
