About Dr. Amos C. Brown

A native of Jackson, Mississippi, Dr. Brown has been Pastor of San Francisco’s Third Baptist Church since 1976. As a scholar, theologian, preacher and social activist, he has maintained a marriage of piety and political action in his ministry. He became equipped for his distinct leadership through his training at Morehouse College, and earned degrees of Master of Divinity degree from Crozer Theological Seminary and the Doctor of Ministry from United Theological Seminary. Before becoming pastor at Third Baptist, he served as pastor of Saint Paul’s Baptist Church in West Chester, Pennsylvania and Pilgrim Baptist Church in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Known among world leaders, presidents, celebrities, and academics alike for his trademark activism, intellectual discipline, and masterful oratory, Dr. Brown is a legend in his own time. Tutored by Medgar Evers, Benjamin Mays, Samuel Williams, J. Pious Barbour, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (as one of the eight students in the only class Dr. King taught in his lifetime at Morehouse College), Dr. Brown was awarded the Martin Luther King, Jr. Ministerial Award for outstanding leadership and contributions to the Black Church in America. He was also inducted into the International Hall of Fame at the King International Chapel at Morehouse College and for a second time was invited by President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama to a Christmas Reception at the White House.

In 2019, Dr. Brown introduced President Russell M. Nelson, President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, at the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Conference, and helped bestow a service award upon our beloved Prophet.
