Pastor Jarvis L. Brown

After serving as the pastor of two Baptist Churches in Anderson, Pastor Brown had a calling from God to do ministry in a unique and innovative way. God placed a heavy burden on Pastor Brown's heart to reach out to people in the community through creating programs and ministries designed to help reshape and save communities. God pressed on his heart to love people with a 'God type' of love.

This love is defined in scriptures with the name 'Agape". The ministry was founded and established by Pastor Brown who had no sure members and no building to worship in. Pastor Brown firmly believed there was more to ministry than meeting on Sundays and Wednesdays and not helping people who needed help the most. He felt an urgency to teach people how to be soul winners and how to serve others the way Jesus did. His philosophy for ministry is based on Matthew 23:11 where Jesus said "But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant."

He feels he has been called to help families in the inner city of Anderson and other surrounding areas. Pastor Brown has served his community and continues to launch vision that challenges people to finish the work that Jesus began over 2000 years ago. He is a son, husband and brother. He enjoys reading, golfing, fishing and helping people maximize their God given talents and gifts in order to build up the body of Christ and win souls for Jesus Christ.
