His own organizations
Between 1996 and 2000 he was leader in the Brownsville Revival, a Christian Pentecostal revival Movement that began on June 18, 1995, at the Brownsville Assembly of God church in Pensacola, Florida. In 2000 though the board kicked him out of the movement. In 2001 he started the FIRE School of Ministry, A Christian leadership training institute that is heavily influenced by the revival movement that Brown was kicked out of. In 2005 Brown founded another revivalist organization called ICN Ministries. The intent of the organization is to spread the revivalist message to places like Israel, Other Christian organizations, and other places where Brown has influence.
During his career, He has held public debates on multiple subjects with other religious figures. For example, He has debated about the compatibility of a belief in Jesus and Judaism with people like Boteach, John piper, Moshe Otero, Immanuel Schochet and David Blumofe. In 2015, he also debated Bart Simpson on whether the Bible provides an answer to the problem of pain and suffering. He has also debated Bruce Bennett and James White on the role of free will in salvation. He has also debated with Sam Waldron, Phil Johnson, and James White on if the New Testament spiritual gifts have ceased or not. He has also debated multiple people on the issue of homosexuality and Christianity. Most of his debates, including the ones cited here, are freely available on YouTube.
In the past Brown has dealt with minor criticism in Charlotte by the local LGBTQ community for holding a rally in protest of their 2009 Charlotte Pride Festival. Due to his stance against homosexuality, he is also considered be a member of a hate group according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. In September 2012, the organization went as far as naming him in their list of "30 New Activists Heading Up the Radical Right." Although he disagrees with homosexuality and despite the SLPC labeling him as a radical right activist, he has at least said in the past that gays should be treated with respect and dignity.
