Brother Gary Brown

Outreach Ministry Director

My name is Gary J. Brown sr. ( Brother Brown) Father  of One son and two daughters and proud grandfather of four grand boys and One lovely grand daughter! Being raised by a single parent, I never knew my father or grandfather: God has blessed me to be both to my children and grandchildren. My mother raised 3 boys and 2 girls and has gone on to be with the lord. She taught me the fear of the lord and honesty by applying discipline when necessary! She raised me in church where I was a youth minister, Sunday school teacher, minister of music and worship leader!

Born in Gwinnett county, a graduate of Marietta high school and attended Kenesaw state. One of my hobbies is Tennis and I'm also a certified tennis instructor and author of " Tennis Fit For Life". I'm also a tennis youth instructor.

One of my most famous quotes is " What you are is Gods gift to you", What you become is your gift to God".


I am proud to be a part of BYCF and to be a part of this mission ( which God has fore-ordained) To enable youth to become productive citizens in the community and in life, allowing them to reach their full potential . And also a part of the vision: To provide a world class foundation that focus on youth of single and working parents.


May God bless us all according to his will, grace and mercy!


Gary J. Brown sr.
