Pastor Stephen Brown
Pastor Stephen was brought up in Los Angeles, CA. Where after a radical conversion
out of the gang life, he was called to serve as a Youth Pastor for inner-city youth. After
receiving his Master of Divinity in 2009, he served as a US Navy Chaplain in Okinawa, Japan.
There he conducted humanitarian missions throughout the Philippines, Thailand, Japan, and
South Korea, bringing the Gospel and life-sustaining provisions to those in the greatest
need. While in Japan, he led a fruitful ministry as he served as the Senior Pastor for two
racially diverse congregations.
Pastor Brown was called to launch The Way on September 11th, 2022. There, he focuses on having a passionate all consuming love life with Jesus Christ, solid expository preaching, family discipleship, and racially diverse congregations for the glory of God. Today Pastor Stephen is working on his Ph.D. at Gateway Southern Baptist Seminary.
Pastor Stephen is married to his beautiful wife, Maria, for over eighteen years. Together they have three lovely children, Layla, Alina, and Titus.
