Stephen G. Brown has served in full time ministry for over 21 years, most of that time serving students and young adults. He has a passion for engaging people who may be overlooked, and providing support and guidance toward purpose and fulfillment. In February of 2011, Stephen was elected to be the Lead Pastor of Greater Bethlehem Baptist Church (or GBBC) of East Dallas. The Vision and Purpose of GBBC is “The Greater Way: Loving (God & Others), Learning (The Way of Christ), and Living (a life of self-sacrifice).” During his short tenure at GBBC, they have experienced a renewed passion for the community, an increase in engaging and retaining new ministry partners, and a renewed commitment to providing relevant ministry to all generations. Stephen was formally trained at Morehouse College and Dallas Theological Seminary, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Theology, respectively. He is joyfully married to Dr. Nicole T. Brown, a physician for Children’s Health, and they have one son Stephen Nicolas (9), and one daughter Simone Elise (4).
