Dr. Charles L. Brown, a native of Stockton, California has been in and out of prison for over thirty years. Not as an inmate, but as a Minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
In 1984, Dr. Brown started teaching a home bible study with family and friends. He knew he had a call on his life, but didn't know what is was. He attended a mens fellowship at his church, and one of the pastor told him, “if you think you have a call on your life, don't think you will go from the pew to the pulpit. Go into the prisons, jails, juveniles, and missions, because this is where your ministry starts”. So Dr. Brown began to minister in the prisons under the leadership of Don Woskow of D and B Ministries.
In 1986, after visiting several penal institutions and seeing the great need for the people to be taught how to live according to the Word of God, the Lord placed upon his heart to start a ministry that would go into the prisons on a consistent basis and teach the inmates how to live the overcoming, victorious new life in Jesus Christ.
In 1990, he founded and started New Life for Old Prison Ministries. This ministry was created to minister in prisons. Jails, juveniles, and missions. The ministry consisted of 60-70 volunteers, and over two thousand people were ministered to every month. Each week, ministry teams consisting of two to six volunteers were sent out to conduct worship services, bible studies, and musical concerts. From 1990 to 2016, over a half million people were ministered to.
In 1995 he opened “House of Adam”, a transitional home for inmates coming out prisons and jails. It housed about twenty men and was very effective in helping many of them make the transition back into society.
In 2001, Dr. Brown began teaching Evangelism at New Creation Fellowship, under the leadership of Pastor Richard D. Stewart. It was there the Lord began to reveal to him the mystery of His will, “to equip the saints for the work of the ministry”.
In 2014, he founded The Ministry Outreach Training Center. An online ministry school specifically designed to help students learn more about Evangelism and how to do the Work of the Ministry.
In 2015, Dr. Brown began teaching Evangelism in the Apostle Frederick Price Ministry Training Institute, under the leadership of Apostle Frederick K.C. Price.
In June of 2017, Dr. Brown received an Honorary Doctorate from Bible Believers Christian College and Seminary under the leadership of Dr. Vera Milton, Chancellor.
In 2018, Minister Brown, along with five other brothers, founded the Kingdom Broadcasting Network.
He and his beautiful wife Cynthia have been married for over 50 years. They have four wonderful children, two daughters, two sons, two son-in-laws, one daughter-in-law and twelve grandchildren.
