Our pastor is Bobby Brown, a 2013 graduate from the Commonwealth Baptist College in Lexington, KY. CBC is a ministry of the Clays Mill Road Baptist Church, where Dr. Jeff Fugate is the pastor.
Pastor Brown grew up in Englewood, OH just north of Dayton. He lived a fairly normal childhood going to church on Easter and at Christmas time, but other than that never really gave church a second thought.
At Northmont High School he took the usual classes in science and biology and there he began to doubt if there even was a God. Those thoughts began to dissipate over the next few months. Zach Smith, one of his good friends and classmates, invited him to church as a 16 year old young man. There he began to see the hand of God move in his life and he accepted Christ as Savior.
Pastor Brown began to attend the Christian school where he attended church and began to grow in the Lord. But as a senior he began to backslide, his mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and his dad was on his death bed. God shook him up and he surrendered to do whatever God would have him to do. That January his dad went to be with the Lord and that May his mom joined him. It was during this time that God called him to preach the gospel.
He went to Bible college in Lexington, KY. There Pastor Brown received training at Commonwealth Baptist College under the leadership of Dr. Jeff Fugate. This is where he met his wife.
Dr. Fugate had a burden to start 50 churches in Kentucky, he instilled in our pastor a burden for Northern Kentucky, specifically the city of Florence.
On September 7, 2014 Pastor and Mrs. Brown started The Cornerstone Baptist Church, in Receptions Banquet Hall in Erlanger and have since moved to their current location in Florence.
