Dr. Douglas E. Brown, is the modest, yet powerful Pastor/Teacher of the Great Commission Baptist Church where he began his pastorate in January 1993 at age 29. He began his preaching ministry at the Greater Mt. Tabor Missionary Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas in April 1990 under his father in the ministry, Rev. E.L. Bowman.

As Pastor, God has blessed Pastor Brown to be a blessing to the Great Commission Baptist Church where the church has experienced tremendous growth – from 53 members in 1993 to presently more than 4000. As well, he is active in the community and in the city and has received many accolades of accomplishments for the work he continues to do throughout the City of Fort Worth. He quietly admits that while one plants, another waters, only God, with His totally AWESOME self, can give the increase!
