Ministry Bio of Rev. Brent A. Brown
Born to Tyrone Mills and Lisa Brown in Baltimore, MD, Brent Andre Brown was saved at the age of 9, at the Sweet Hope Freewill Baptist Church under the leadership of Bishop Chilean McCoy Smith Sr. At the age of 18, Rev. Brown received the call to the preaching ministry. In 2011, he acknowledged and accepted his call and began studying under the tutelage of his former Pastor, the late Bishop Marilyn E.

Brown furthered his preparation under the tutelage of Pastor Charles A. Hall, Jr. On Saturday, November 23rd, 2013, Rev. Brown preached his initial sermon, "When Faith Fights Reality."
Serving and walking closely with his mentor and predecessor, the late Rev. Errol D. Gilliard, Sr., equipped Rev. Brown for ministry at Greater Harvest and beyond. Rev.
