She earned a Master’s degree in Theology in 2003 and a Doctorate in Theology in 2006 from the School of Bible Study Theology Seminary and University in San Jacinto, California.
In 2001, Brown joined the Pentecostal Church of God. Shortly thereafter, she founded Fresh Anointed Deliverance Ministry in Brampton.
Brown is the founder of the Victorious Women’s Initiative, a group created to help and empower women facing crises, such as spousal abuse, financial issues, homelessness, illness and grief. She also volunteers as co-host on a religious radio program on CMR radio 101.3 FM.
Last year, Brown was invited to the International Day of Prayer at the White House, where she prayed for U.S. President Barack Obama, his family and all world leaders.
