The Reverend Doctor Charles O. Brown D.D.
Teacher, Lecturer, Counselor, Advisor, and
Entrepreneur are all titles which have been earned by this world
traveler who now serves as an Assistant Minister for Understanding
Principles for Better Living Church, where the Rev. Della Reese
Lett is the Minister/Founder.
Dr. Charles, or "Doc" as he is lovingly
known, grew up and received his early education in Los Angeles,
California. He is a graduate of the Chouinard Institute of the
Arts where he mastered the skills that led to the founding of
several companies, including Unique Gifts, Designs by Charlie
and Mishra, Inc. (Importers of his original designs and home furnishings
with offices in Bombay and New Delhi as well as Los Angeles).
As Charles was mastering the business world,
he was also mastering the world of spiritual studies. He has done
extensive course work in Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Judaic Christianity,
Islam and Yoruba. These studies led to his ordination in 1980
and the awarding of the degree of Doctor of Divinity from the
First Assembly of Christ School of Theology and Metaphysical Science.
The call to service extended beyond the walls
of the churches where he was called to pastor and included work
in counseling and rehabilitation. He has been recognized for his
outstanding contributions to the community by members of the Los
Angeles City Council and the office of the Mayor. He has lent
his support and wisdom as a member of the Board of Directors of
the American Recovery Institute in Pomona, California and as a
member of the Citizen Advisory committee for the city of Rialto.
