Our Pastoral Lineage

1967 -1972: Reverend Edward W. Brown

Reverend Edward W. Brown was the sixth pastor to grace the pulpit of historic Antioch.  He was called from his post at Antioch Baptist Church in Beaumont, Texas, on November 9, 1967.  Reverend Brown was installed as pastor of Antioch on Sunday, February 25, 1968. He was a dedicated pastor and possessed a keen biblical insight born of the training he secured at the Oberlin Graduate School of Theology, Oberlin, Ohio. He began to revitalize the membership through a teaching ministry, and was actively involved in the cultural, religious and civic life of the community.  He maintained a profound interest in children,  resulting in a vibrant youth program.  During his administration the main sanctuary and lower auditorium were remodeled.  In 1972, he accepted the call to his former church in Beaumont.
