Our Speaker:

Howard Brown was born and raised in Charleston, SC and his wife Kellie is a native St. Louisan. Howard and Kellie moved to Charlotte in the spring of 2003 to start Christ Central. Before coming to Charlotte, they ministered to and led churches in Atlanta and Baltimore.

Kellie, a theater teacher at Invest Collegiate School is also the founding summer director and current executive director of the NoDa School of Arts. She is an excellent cook and enjoys wine, live music and theater.

Howard likes to go fishing, loves Clemson football, and enjoys watching movies and tv with Kellie.

Howard and Kellie have two boys, Harrison, 13 and Clark, 11. Howard holds a Master of Divinity degree from Covenant Theological Seminary and an English degree from Clemson University.

Here's a summary of Howard's messages to us:

Grow Up!!! may have been yelled at you by a family member, a friend, or even to yourself sometime in your life. What does it mean to grow up in a way that will neither put you down or let you be slack? We live and are a part of a world that demands we play a grown-up part. We will explore, recognizing our limitations, becoming a positive force for a diverse world, and being a part of building life-giving relationships. Come find out and learn more about how God gives us hope and help to Grow Up!!
1. Grow Up!!: An Invitation, Not A Slap, Colossians 1:9-14
2. Grow Up!!: IAdmit You’re Wrong, Genesis 2:25-3:21
3. Grow Up!!: Diversify Your World, Matthew 10:8-27
4. Grow Up!!: You Still Don’t Know Everything Ephesians 4:1-24
