Pastor Adekunmi Browne is an Associate Pastor at Christ Apostolic Church 1st in the America’s located in Brooklyn, New York. He was born and dedicated to Christ in this church and is grateful to God for ordering his steps to learn and continue to grow in the ministry. He gave his life to the Lord at the age of 14 and has always been a leader among his peers.
Pastor Browne has experienced challenges as well. In the year 2000, he left his home church in Brooklyn to attend another church. He never thought he would come back to CAC as he didn’t feel like the youth were completely understood. After seven years, Pastor Browne found himself back at CAC through the efforts of his senior Pastor, Pastor Dr. Gbenga Famojuro who made a call to all the youth in the church who had left. He created an open forum where the youth were allowed to express their concerns about the church and how it affected them. This was where Pastor Browne found solace and decided to return to the church as a youth leader in 2007. Although Pastor Browne was away from CAC he was not away from Christ. He spent the time serving and traveling in ministry fostering the work of God.
As Pastor Browne returned to CAC 1st in the Americas he would work alongside with his lifelong brother and best friend “Bo” today know as Pastor Bo (Bola Omotade) and Sister Ayomide Okusanya, now Sis Ayomide Okelarin. The three of them alongside the youth directors led the youth ministry. Shortly after, the Lord started pouring in more youth leaders. Pastor Browne and his colleagues were elevated to Evangelists in 2012 and in 2015 elevated to Pastors. A few things he learned along the way is that his experiences meant absolutely nothing if somebody doesn’t share them. The way to receive is to GIVE. Live a consistent life with Christ, remember you’re being watched. Never say NEVER. Be the LIGHT, so that not only you SEE but those who come in contactwith you SEE as well.
Pastor Browne believes in upholding the integrity and love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. His love for the youth and example extends itself by not being ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and always taking a stand for Him. Pastor Browne serves in various areas of the ministry such as the Ministering and Discipleship Ministry, the Welcome Team, Adviser for the Announcement Team, the Sunday School National Board, and Director of CAC North America Youth and Young Adult Ministry. Pastor Browne is blessed to serve in the Lord’s vineyard, and has dedicated his life to the work of the Lord alongside his lovely wife, Essence Olufumilayo Browne, his energetic daughter Adelola Browne and his very handsome son Adetola Browne.
“All things work together for the good to them that love the Lord and are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28).
