When Bro. Billy first began his ministry, he organized services in jails, prisons, hospitals, and tent revivals. Little did he know that these experiences with God would lead him to become the founder of Safe Pasture International.

Many things have made Bro. Billy the man that he is today. He learned some of life's valuable lessons as he served as a U.S. Army paratrooper in Rakkasan, and as squad leader during the Korean War. His education is extensive including: Bachelor of Business Administration, Bachelor of Theology, Master of Theology and Doctor of Divinity degrees. His character was developed further as he served for twenty five years in the pastorate. But perhaps the hardest job and the most rewarding one was raising four children, along with his lovely wife Mattie.

Bro. Billy has held many offices, including: Associational Sunday School Director, Associational Brotherhood Director, and Chairman of the Joint Mission Committee. He also organized crusades and rallies for thirty one churches in the Polk County, Georgia area.  He was voted Chaplain of the Year, elected to Personalities of the South 1979-1980, and elected member of the Who's Who Registry of Business Leaders. He has also led in construction, medical and evangelism ventures in Korea, the Philippines, Haiti, Jamaica and projects in the United States, and has received letters of appreciation from most of them.

Even with all of this in his past, Bro. Billy knows that the best is yet to come. As founder and director of Safe Pasture International, Bro. Billy has an unquenchable desire to reach the lost of this world for Jesus. His testimony is genuine, his convictions are unswerving, and his personality is humble. Truly the Lord has His hand on Bro. Billy's life and ministry! Let us all be in prayer for Bro. Billy and Mattie Brown as they lead us to a deeper understanding of what it means to be "chosen."
