Ross & Noreen Brown
Ross and Noreen have been happily married since 1987, and have 3 amazing adult children; Jordan, Danielle (married to Curtis) and Nathan. During their 35 years of ministry, they have worked as full-time leaders with Youth For Christ (where they met), ran successful youth ministries, planted three churches, launched an organization to minister to families with missing children, and started a family business which they ran for 10 years, called Curbs in the Burbs.
Both Ross and Noreen have a passion for people. Ross is a Pastor, Shepherd, and teacher. He is a leader that develops leaders and releases people to be all that God has called them to be!
Noreen has been a business owner for 29 years and during that time been a leader, conference speaker, trainer and mentor to many successful women.
They love to see people “Getting Unstuck” from their broken past so they can be released to encounter all that God has for them. With a Shepherd/Pastors heart, they desire to see men and women of all ages grow in their understanding of how amazing God is, and how he has so much more for them. As they mentor individuals and married couples, they are constantly reminded that God is good, He still speaks, He keeps His promises, He wants no one to perish, He is the path to freedom, He knows your name, and He wants all of us to practice what we preach!
