Dr. Brown began his Christian life on Easter Sunday in 1983 and several years later, God called him to become a pastor. He is married to Deb and has two children. He worked as a youth minister while completing his education and has served as pastor in three churches over the last twelve years. He came to Crestmont, July of 2009.
Dr. Brown has degrees from Dallas Baptist University and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. His doctoral work focused on contemporary culture and the postmodern generations,and how the church must not only understand and reach this culture in the context of unchanging theology and doctrine, but provide experiences that will develop active, growing Christian leaders for today and the future.
The messages Dr. Brown has been bringing reflect a strong commitment to Biblical truth. He will be working this year with Crestmont leaders and members to continue relevant church programs, events, experiences and community relationships as Crestmont Baptist Church seeks to be a positive and effective influence in our society.
Michael is our lead worship leader and has been leading worship in various areas of ministry for 10 years. He has served as a worship leader in Shreveport, LA, Nacogdoches, TX, and Tulsa, OK before coming to Crestmont in the fall of 2010. Besides answering his calling to help connect people's hearts to God through music, he has a passion for young adult ministry. He has a strong desire to help disciple the leaders of tomorrow in any way that he can. He is excited to serve at a church that has such a strong legacy of making an impact in the world. He looks forward to continuing to build upon that legacy as Crestmont continues to seek ways to lead the charge in pursuing new ways to engage the hearts and minds of the lost and to help point them towards Jesus Christ.
