Brief Bio

Dr. Jeffery Brown's favorite part of teaching is "seeing the light come on" in his students. "It's neat to hear people start to put their life in perspective and think about it and really start to prioritize," said Brown. "I feel like the Word is equipping. I feel like I'm giving them ammunition to go out and fight the good fight."

After receiving his undergraduate degree from HLG, Brown moved to Louisville, Kentucky where he attended The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Since obtaining his MDiv. and Ph.D. from Southern, he has also taught as an adjunct at Southern, Mid-Western Theological Seminary, and Rockbridge Seminary (online). After teaching adjunct at HLG for several years, he joined the HLG faculty full-time in 2008.

Dr. Brown's inspiration for teaching has roots in the time he spent at HLG as a student. While pursuing his degree, he sat under Dr. Pelletier, Dr. Morgan and Dr. Bergen. "I remember how they impacted my life and what a positive influence they had on me," said Brown. "If I could do that for other young men who were wanting to go into ministry, I'd want to do that."

His experience in the pastorate prior to coming on full-time at HLG fueled a passion for helping fellow pastors. Brown has a burden for helping struggling churches become healthy and fruitful, and runs an active ministry to serve and train local church pastors.

Outside of the classroom, Dr. Brown relishes the time he has with his wife (also an HLG alum) and his three kids.
