A career educator, Elder Brown has been in education for more than 20 years, educating students from the Technical school level all the way down to the second grade. Elder Brown received his formal education in the Milwaukee Public School (MPS) system, graduated from ITT Technical Institute with a Bachelor’s degree in Electronics Engineering Technology, and later obtained his Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Walden University.

Elder Brown’s personal mission at NTCA is to display Christ, in everything he does, as he educates his students on a daily basis; because Elder Brown feels that it is imperative that he fulfills the mandate given by Christ to be ‘light’ and ‘salt’ in a dying world.
“Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”
