Hers is the voice you usually hear when you call FBC, and the first face you see when you stop by during the week. Paula Brown strives to serve everyone who comes into the church office with a smile and a loving heart, and most folks who meet her would say she succeeds.

I love ministering to my church family in any way that I can,” says Brown, who is FBC’s church administrator. “I want to be known as a trustworthy person.”

Born in Meridian, Mississippi, in 1960, Brown grew up in Collinsville, Mississippi. She asked Jesus into her heart when she was 8-years-old during a revival at her home church, Midway Baptist Church, in Meridian. She graduated from West Lauderdale High School in Collinsville, and attended Meridian Community College.

She has been married to her high school sweetheart, Glenn Brown, since 1979, and the couple has two children, Eric and Emily, and four grandchildren: Seeley Rae Brown, twins Hank and Darcy Brown, and Harvey Goodman.

“I began serving the Lord in ministry at Clearview Baptist Church as the receptionist and education secretary in May of 1990,” she says. “I was at Clearview for eight years and then on May 1, 1998, started my ministry at FBC Ashville. God opened the door for me to serve at Clearview and I fell in love with doing God’s work through helping and ministering to the church staff, church family and people in the community.”

She wants to be a faithful servant for God and to be used where God wants to use her, Brown says. “It thrills my heart to see young families with children be active and involved in church life. I want to see our church grow and disciple everyone who steps through our doors to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ.”

In her leisure time she enjoys walking and spending time with her family.
