Leon B. Brown, Sr.
Vice President

Pastor Brown was elected vice president of the Pacific Union in August 2021, a role that requires close cooperation with the president as a key leader in the territory. Brown brings vast and varied experience to this role, having previously served within the Pacific Union as president of the Nevada-Utah Conference and pastor of several California congregations, as well as coordinator of Inner-City Ministries, Prison Ministries, Men’s Ministries, and African American Ministries. His business background complements his heart for ministry; Brown has not only worked as an accountant and payroll administrator, he has also taught accounting, math, tax, and business at the college level and served as dean of instruction at Heald College School of Business in Stockton, California. He has undergraduate degrees in business and religion from Oakwood University in Alabama, master’s degrees in business administration and divinity from Andrews University in Michigan, and a Doctor of Ministry from the San Francisco Theological Seminary in San Anselmo, California. Brown is passionate about community and sharing Jesus with everyone he meets. He has been married to Julie F. Brown for 33 years, and they have two adult sons, Leon II and Lawrence.
