It is this eclectic collection of experiences that has served him well in faith, corporate and community engagements.
Pastor Brown embraces the missional mandate to significantly assist churches, organizations and communities in their specific distinction of service, development and transformation to the locales they serve. He has committed his life to Servant Leader principles which he’s shared for over 30 years with diverse communities, faiths and business leaders.
