Pastor believes that God has called for he and his wife to work together in ministry. Their commitment to fruitful, life-changing, and evolving ministry has enabled them to birth their own ministry, Keys to the Kingdom. Together they have co-authored many books. Pastor Brown is determined to fulfill the call God has placed on his life through obedience to HIS commands. For Deuteronomy 11:26 says, “Today, I am giving you the choice between a blessing and a curse! For you will be blessed if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today”.
