Even though Elder Chauncey D. Brown, Pastor of Greater Williams Chapel Free Will Baptist Church, has only been in Homestead a little over a year, he has already touched many lives in the community. Councilman Elvis Maldonado, who recently attended service at the Pastor’s church, wanted to recognize the mark that Brown has made in the Homestead community by honoring him during the September City Council meeting.
“The message that he brought during service had me on my feet and it truly inspired me,” said Councilman Maldonado, Liaison to the Homestead Education Committee. “One of the things he said during service that I will never forget was that we need to stop complaining when our children misbehave if we do not help them and get involved in their education. Pastor Brown spoke about how the children in our community are the responsibility of all of us and that message truly inspired me. He is working on programs to engage our youth so he lives that message.”
Elder Chauncey Brown’s ministry spans over 20 years. He has worked in various areas of education and has developed programs to keep children in school when adversity happens, HIV/AIDS pre and post counseling, domestic violence education and many other community based activities.
