Brown “has ex­pressed such a dear love for peo­ple and their well be­ing as he has opened his ears, heart and arms to as­sist any­one that may have a need for shel­ter, food, and some just have a mo­ment to re­ceive some good, solid coun­sel­ing or en­cour­age­ment to help them over­come ob­sta­cles in their life.”

Rev. Brown is pas­tor of Mount Cal­vary Bap­tist Church in Hay­wood, spend­ing 32 years in paid and un­paid mil­i­tary sta­tus car­ing for lo­cal vets and mak­ing cer­tain they are aware of avail­able ben­e­fits. He is also a mem­ber of the lo­cal Hu­man Ser­vices Board and Heat Shel­ter.

Among his many hon­ors and awards: first to re­ceived the Five over Fifty Ag­ing Award, first African Amer­i­can Grand Mar­shall of the 4th of July pa­rade, nom­i­nated for the Hev­erty Award, and awarded the Boy Scout of Amer­ica Award.
