Bishop Kim W. Brown
Bishop Kim W. Brown is the senior pastor of Mount Lebanon Baptist Church, affectionately known as The Mount, which has locations in Chesapeake, Virginia, Newport News, Virginia and Elizabeth City and Charlotte, North Carolina. As Pastor, he brings creative and innovative vision and takes an “out of the box” approach to ministry, which appeals to all cultures and age groups. Since his tenure with The Mount, which began in 1990, he has watched the congregation grow from 75 to over 13,000 with evidence of continued growth.
Bishop Brown received his Bachelor of Science in Engineering from Norfolk State University. His academic preparation for the Gospel included a Master of Divinity degree, received in 1991, and a Doctorate of Ministry degree, received in 1998, from Samuel D. Proctor School of Theology at Virginia Union University.
As a result of his servant attitude, respect in the community and willingness to be used outside the four walls of the church, Bishop Brown has developed close relationships with highly respected ministry and political leaders locally and nationally. In 2004, he was appointed to the Chesapeake Regional Medical Center’s Board of Authority, and, in 2008, he was named Chairman. He is the author of the best selling book, Marriage Talk.
Bishop Brown has been married to Elder Valerie Kay Brown since 1989 and God has blessed them with two children, James and Kimberly.
Bishop believes that God has called for him and his wife to work together in ministry. Their commitment to fruitful, life-changing and evolving ministry has enabled them to birth their own ministry, K.W. Brown International Ministries, Inc.
Bishop Brown is determined to fulfill the call God placed on his life through obedience to HIS commands. For Deuteronomy 11:26 says, “Today, I am giving you the choice between a blessing and a curse! For you will be blessed if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today.”

Great read! A reminder of the work that is required for a successful marriage. Thank you Bishop Brown for your transparency. – I. Nance
I read this book when it first came out and highlighted what I felt was relevant. Then my wife read it and did the same thing. It was amazing to see what we highlighted “together”! And we worked on those areas that we highlighted separately! We have an awesome marriage, thanks to many of the tenets of this book! Awesome Read! – R. Young
Very insightful book that has helped me look at marriage in a way I never have before. Great use of scriptural and practical examples and concepts. As a single man it had shone a great light on the value of marriage, reasons for behavior, understanding a spouse, family order and MUCH more. Highly recommend.
