Our Pastors

Dr. Michael Gray has been the senior pastor at CHBC since January 1998. He grew up in a preacher’s home, where he saw the dedication and faithfulness of parents who loved the Word and lived it daily. They gave him a love of history and instilled in their son a passion for the Word of God.

During his senior year of high school, while on a mission trip to New York City, he surrendered his life to full-time ministry. After graduating from college he ministered in Lakeland, FL as a teacher, youth pastor, and music director.

Michael then had the opportunity to serve as Associate Pastor with his father at Grace Baptist Church in Pelzer, SC for six years. Additionally, he went on to earn an M.A. degree in Church History, and an S.Min. (Specialist in Ministry) degree from Bob Jones University. In 2014 he completed his Doctorate of Ministry in residence at Grace Theological Seminary in Winona Lake, IN.

He married his wife Kellie in 1985 and they have three grown children and three adorable granddaughters. His personal interests are wide-ranging and eclectic. Michael has collected nearly 2000 classical music recordings, enjoys reading theology and history, is an avid college football fan (especially Florida State Football –Go Noles!), and is comfortable discussing golf, fishing and NASCAR.

 

 

Pstr_rn_2Pastor Douglas Brown was born in Ohio.  Growing up in a truck driver’s home, he moved from Ohio to Colorado, Indiana, and back to Ohio where he graduated from Mount Vernon Senior High.  He enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1990 and was honorably discharged in 1992.  He moved to Greenville, SC to begin studies at Bob Jones University.  After attending BJU for two years, the Holy Spirit awoke him to his need of Christ.  He trusted Christ as his Savior in July 1995.  He married his fiancée, Sherry Smith, in September 1995.  He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Pastoral Studies in May 2000.

His first daughter, Rebecca, was born in October 1999 and he was ordained to the gospel ministry by Colonial Hills Baptist Church in November 1999.  In 2001, Pastor Brown and his family moved to Madawaska, Maine, a small French-Roman Catholic community, where he pastored at Madawaska Gospel Church for 12 years.  His second daughter, Sarah, was born in June 2002.  He accepted a call to return to Colonial Hills Baptist Church for him to become the Associate Pastor in September 2013.  He is currently working on a Master of Theological Studies degree from Louisiana Baptist Theological Seminary.

Pastor Brown loves to read biographies, the writings of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, British classical literature and Swedish crime fiction, especially the works of Henning Mankell.  His life’s purpose verse is Philippians 2:3 – “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.”
