Also in Buffalo, he was a member of the St. John Baptist Church (under leadership of the late Dr. B.W. Smith, Sr.). There he received his salvation at the age of eight years old. Pastor Brown was very active in the church. He sang with the youth choir and was the first Life Scout of the Boy Scout troop at the church.

While over the Prison Ministry, Pastor Brown started the groundwork for an after care program for paroled inmates. Revised services to cater to the needs of the inmates, he began exploring for other facilities through which the ministry could spread the Word of God.
