2 Chronicles 7:14. "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

     The Mission of Howard Brown Ministry is to "serve" as an Outreach to those that are in prison, incarcerated, homeless, without a church home, substance abusers or those that are tired of being caught up in tradition without a true relationship. The Lord wants us to enjoy life, our families, friends, and the positive relationship we have developed with them. Somehow we have changed the priorities; it should be God, family and then church, not church and then family. As always, God is first in everything we do. Jesus came to give life and give it more abundantly.  It is my hope through encouragement from the Word of God and this ministry you will take your rightful place in Christ; to seek His face, His presence and make Him "Lord of your life". Lord of your life means every part of your life is submitted to Jesus authority and control, everything: marriage, children, job, finances, decisions, everything. You were created for a purpose, and God wants to receive all the glory (glory - to bestow honor or praise; to magnify) from your life. Simply put, you were created to "give glory to God". Isaiah 43: 7. "Everyone who is called by My name, Whom I have created for My Glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him."

1 Corinthians 10:31 "Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God."

     It is for these reasons we have made this site and its resources available to you. With the Word of God, encouragement, testimonies and teachings, you should be thoroughly equipped.

     Feel free to contact me via the "Contact" page to share your testimony, prayer requests, schedule a speaking engagement or just to say "Hello". Our Heavenly Father will reveal His will and His plan for your life through His "Word" as you increase your walk with Him through His Word, and bible study tools.  As you read the contents throughout this website ask God to speak to your heart.  If you are looking for His Presence, He will draw near to you, just humble yourself, Tell God how much you love Him.

Our goal is to improve the website daily.  I will add or change as The Lord directs.  Amen!

"Whatever you are facing; if God brings you to it, He will bring you through it." Dr. Howard L. Brown

"THERE IS NO AMOUNT OF DARKNESS THAT CAN EXTINGUISH THE INNER LIGHT. THE IMPORTANT THING IS NOT TO SPEND OUR LIVES TRYING TO CONTROL THE ENVIRONMENT AROUND US. THE TASK IS TO CONTROL THE ENVIRONMENT WITHIN US." - JOANN CHITTESTER

POSITIVE THINKING CORNER: Men of Color Study Bible

Satan's ploy is to rob and steal from our relationships and us. Sometimes he will even use things that appear to be good to steal from you that which would be best.  Sometimes it's not Satan at all but just our thoughtlessness that hurts us. Watch out for these:

 * Having too many individualized activities; going in opposite directions too many days and nights can take its toll.

 * Not scheduling time for togetherness; if you don't schedule time you probably won't find time. Take time for each other.

  * Not communicating regularly or meaningfully; we have to work at communicating in order to maintain close bonds in the midst of busyness.

   * Not resolving differences that arise; intimacy is easier to destroy than it is to build . Deal with your issues.

   * Communicating in a hurtful way; ask yourself, "Do my words invite or do they push away?"  Never attack a person; always attack the issue. Speak kindly.

   * Being dishonest always hurts. Deception never helps. Tell the truth.

   * Nagging; once you have plainly said something and you know it's been heard, drop it. Encourage one another.

   * Behaving abusively; abusive behavior is damaging to the spirit and the soul as well as the body. Treat one another in love.

   * Being unfaithful; nothing hurts a relationship like infidelity.

 Temporary excitement will never be worth the agony.

 A Soulful Relationship:

Reverend Ronald McFaddenIf you're not married yet share this with a friend. If you are married, share it with your spouse or other married couples...and reflect on it. An African proverb states, "Before you get married, keep both eyes open, and after you marry, close one eye." Before you get involved and make a commitment to someone, don't let lust, desperation, immaturity, ignorance, pressure from others or a low self-esteem make you blind to warning signs. Keep your eyes open, and don't fool yourself that you can change someone or that what you see as faults aren't really important. Once you decide to commit to someone, over time their flaws, vulnerabilities, pet peeves, and differences will become more obvious. If you love your mate and want the relationship to grow and evolve, you've got to learn to close one eye and not let every thing bother you.

You and your mate have many different expectations, emotional needs, values, dreams, weaknesses, and strengths. You are two unique individuals who have decided to share a life together. Neither of you are perfect but are you perfect for each other?  Do you bring out the best of each other? Do you compliment and compromise with each other, or do you compete, compare and control? What do you bring to the relationship? Do you bring past relationships, past hurt, past mistrust, past pain? You can't take someone to the altar to alter him or her. You can't make someone love you or make someone stay. If you develop self-esteem, spiritual discernment, and "a life", you won't find yourself making someone else responsible for your happiness or responsible for your pain. Manipulation, control, jealousy, neediness, and selfishness are not the ingredients of a thriving, healthy, loving and lasting relationship.

Seeking status, sex, wealth, and security are the wrong reasons to be in a relationship. What keeps a relationship strong? Communication, intimacy, trust, a sense of humor, sharing household tasks, some getaway time without business or children and daily exchanges (a meal, shared activity, a hug, a call, a touch, a note). Leave a nice message on their voicemail or send a nice email. Sharing common goals and interests. Growth is important. Grow together, not away from each other, giving each other space to grow without feeling insecure.  Allow your mate to have outside interest. You can't always be together. Give each other a sense of belonging and assurances of commitment. Don't try to control one another. Learn each other's family situation. Respect his or her parents regardless. Don't put pressure on each other for material goods. Remember for richer or poorer. If these qualities are missing, the relationship will erode as resentment, withdrawal, abuse, neglect, dishonesty, and pain replace the passion. "Nurture you mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think" The grass withers, the flowers fades, but the Word of God, stands forever: Isaiah 40:8

The difference between 'United' and 'Untied' is where you put the i. Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away!

 God is preparing a table (opening up doors) for you in the presence of those enemies of yours, He is going to show them you are his child, they will not get the best of you; "no weapon formed against you shall prosper."

       

Habakkuk 2:1b-3. "Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, it will not tarry."

 STEP OUT IN FAITH,  ANSWER THE CALL, THAT HAS BEEN PRESSED IN YOUR SPIRIT, YOU HAVE DREAMED ABOUT IT,  AFTER MUCH PRAYER, DO WHAT GOD IS TELLING YOU TO DO; WHETHER IT IS GOING BACK TO SCHOOL, LOSING WEIGHT, FINDING A NEW JOB, STARTING YOUR OWN BUSINESS,  WORKING IN A MINISTRY.  THESE ARE ALL EXAMPLES, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT GOD IS TELLING YOU TO DO. YOU HAVE THE VISION MOVE FORWARD.

Jesus said, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life!"
