Realizing the call of God on his life in the winter of 1960, H. Oral accepted Christ as Lord and Savior and joined the body of Christ as a member of the church of his birthTransfiguration Baptist Church. Pastor Brown was exposed to formal education from the age of five at the Southern Primary, Junior, Senior Schools, and later, the Jordan and Prince William Baptist Schools. A high school education was just not sufficient for Reverend Brown as he ventured to explore, experience, and expose himself to what the field of education had to offer. In 1993 Dr. Brown received an overpowering awareness by the Holy Spirit that the time was now for the Lord to birth even greater ministry through him. The historic beginning was on Sunday, June 6, 1993, when the first services for the Heritage Missionary Baptist Church were held, and in June of 2015, Dr. Brown will officially retire from active pastorship; however, he will remain a preaching force to contend within the Christian community. Pastor Brown lives in the Bahamas and is married to Marion Brown (nee Higgins). He is the father of fiveBeetrum (deceased), Cheryl (Michael), Stacey (Leonard), Shantell (Steven) Hartman Jr. and the proud grandfather of four Miguel, Mehikia, Sydni, Indi-jai and Steven II.
