About Us

OUR PASTOR & WIFE SHIRLEY

 

IN MARCH 1983, MT. AIRY BAPTIST CHURCH EXTENDED THE CALL TO REV. WILLIS A. BROWN, AN ASSOCIATE MINISTER, OF THE ANTIOCH BAPTIST CHURCH OF NORTH HILLS, PA, FOR THE OFFICE OF PASTOR. HE ACCEPTED THE CALL AND WAS INSTALLED AS PASTOR ON THE 4TH SUNDAY IN JUNE 1983. PASTOR BROWN CAME TO US WITH HIS WIFE, SHIRLEY: AND THEIR SONS: MICHAEL, DEVON AND DORION. THE FAMILY HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO INCLUDE DAUGHTERS-IN-LAW AND 6 GRAND-CHILDREN.

 

UNDER HIS LEADERSHIP AND HIS PASSION FOR GOD'S PEOPLE OUR MEMBERSHIP CONTINUES TO GROW. BECAUSE OF THE ONGOING, EXTENSIVE BIBLICAL TEACHING AND HIS EXAMPLE, PEOPLE CONTINUE TO GROW SPIRITUALLY, LIVES CONTINUE TO CHANGE, FAMILIES ARE BEING STRENGTHENED, AND OUR CHURCH FELLOWSHIP STILL SERVES AS A "BEACON OF LIGHT" IN THE COMMUNITY.

 

WE PRAISE AND THANK THE LORD FOR GIVING US A PASTOR WHO IS A VISIONARY. HE FOLLOWS THE MANDATE OF LUKE 19:13 "OCCUPY TILL I COME".

 

THROUGH OUR BUILDING MINISTRY, WE HAVE RETIRED AN EXISTING MORTGAGE ON THE ORIGINAL BUILDING (1990), ACQUIRED AND CONTINUE TO MAINTAIN SEVERAL LOTS AND PROPERTIES FOR MINISTRY WORK. THESE PROPERTIES INCLUDE HOUSING, A LICENSED CHRISTIAN CHILD CARE FACILITY (1993), A PRINT SHOP FOR YOUR PRINTING AND ADVERTISING NEEDS (IMPRINTED TEE SHIRTS FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS, WEDDING ANNOUNCEMENTS, INVITATIONS, PROGRAMS, FUNERAL BULLETINS); ETC. WHILE PROVIDING NEEDED SERVICES IN THE COMMUNITY, WE ALSO PROVIDE JOBS FOR THOSE WHO ARE QUALIFIED AND EVEN FOR SOME WHO ARE CONSIDERED UNEMPLOYABLE. 

 

IN 2001, OUR NEW SANCTUARY WAS CONSTRUCTED AND RENOVATIONS WERE MADE TO THE OLD EXISTING FACILITY. THE VISION CONTINUES........

IN THE PLANNING STAGE IS THE ERECTION OF A SENIOR CITIZEN COMPLEX, G.A.L.A. (GOLDEN AGE LIVING ACCOMODATIONS). IT IS PROPOSED THAT THIS COMPLEX WILL ALSO HOUSE A FAMILY LIFE CENTER WITH GYM FACILITIES, A SPA, EXERCISE & GAME ROOM; ETC.

TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
