2015 Breakfast and Men’s Session

Featured Breakfast and Youth Workshop Speaker:  Eddie Brown, Jr.

ebrownEddie Brown Jr, is CEO/Principal of a full-service marketing, advertising and public relations firm in New Orleans.  A member of Christ Temple Church of Christ (Holiness) USA in New Orleans, LA, he serves as a Sunday School Teacher and Minister of Music under the leadership of Pastor Rick Andrews.

Eddie visits schools, organizations and community groups as a Motivational Speaker where he shares life-lessons and humorous stories with youth and adults about life. He has served as a volunteer staff member of NextGeneration Clubs, where he visited New Orleans public schools each week to challenge teens about self-esteem, honor, respect, healthy decisions and their spiritual relationships.

In bringing others to Christ, Eddie believes his contribution to the body of Christ is to remind the believers “God is who He says He is, will be who He says He will be to us, and will do what He says He will do for us and through us.”

He enjoys holding conversations with ‘old folks’, strangers, friends and family (not necessarily in that order— but mostly in that order).
