The Author

David Brown is the youth pastor at THE BIBLE Baptist Church of DeLand, Florida. David grew up in north Alabama, where he was raised in a Christian home and saved at an early age. David began preaching God's word as a teenager under the influence and spiritual leadership of Pastor Joel Logan at Sweet Springs Baptist Church in Ardmore, Alabama. He moved to Florida to attend the DeLand School of the Bible, where he now lives and serves the Lord with his beautiful wife, Lauren.  The Lord has blessed them with two daughters, Riley Grace and Caroline Elizabeth.

The Blog

The blog was Lauren's idea.  When David became a youth pastor in the fall of 2007, he began sending out bi-weekly emails to the young people at the church with thoughts from his Bible reading and notes of encouragement.  The e-mail list eventually expanded well beyond the youth at BBC.  The blog was set up as a way to make these posts available to anyone who was interested.

The purpose of the blog is to to instruct, challenge, and encourage Christians to open their Bibles and follow hard after God (Psalm 63:8; Philippians 3:14).
