My Name is Paul Brown and I am the Assistant Pastor here at Open Door Baptist Church. The Lord brought me to this church at the young age of zero. That’s right, I first started attending ODBC at two weeks old. Open Door is a very special place to me because it’s the place where I grew up learning about Jesus and His Word. Through the ministry of this church and my godly parents I accepted Christ when I was only five years old. I praise the Lord that He reached down and saved a sinner like me at such a young age.
In my teen years God used Assistant Pastor David DeLeon to challenge me to consider full-time ministry. It was also at that time that I met my wife, Beka, in youth group. We attended Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, Iowa and I gained a degree in 2012 in Assistant Pastoral and a double minor in Youth and Greek.
