Reverend Jamal H. Brown MDiv, CFWI

Reverend Jamal Brown completed his Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice from Elizabeth City State University in 1993. He received his Masters in Divinity with a concentration in Clinical Pastoral Counseling and his certification in Family Wellness Life Skills Coaching from Shaw University in 2011. He is the proud Pastor and Servant Leader of Holly Springs United Church of Christ for which he and his wife Lady Shandolyn Brown (RN) have served since 2013. Since they have served Holly Springs has seen growth, and served the community in various capacities beyond the church walls. Service has expanded through a world pandemic which through this adversity has provided new opportunities. Together the church has celebrated a 150th church anniversary celebration and the experience of God’s provision to pay the church debt off during the pandemic.

Since 2009, Jamal has worked with families, small business owners, clergy, and churches in the areas of Final Expense benefits and wealth preservation, asset accumulation, and legacy creation. What this means is that he seeks to be an effective and genuine financial resource by helping the clients he serves understand, evaluate, and implement proven strategies. The real benefit is his strategic process that helps minimize taxation, which allows the client he serves to streamline their dollars in a more favorable setting.


Pastor Brown believes the call of the church is to be God's vehicle through the sharing and experiencing of God's gospel of Jesus Christ in the building of God's community of believers. He envisions fostering unity among believers where the love of Christ is a shared experience for all believers.

Pastor Brown is a proponent of community involvement for the individual believer and the church as a whole. He and Holly Springs UCC have over the years partnered with Lost Sheep ministry (Pastor Phil Brickle),  Woodhaven Baptist Church(Pastor Dave Stratton),  the Compassion Day movement of bringing local churches and different denominations together in common love, respect, and understanding to help the community. 


He is also a proud member of the Southern Conference of the United Church of Christ. He has worked on several boards including the Church and Ministry, Board of Directors, the historic Franklinton Center of Bricks Board of Directors, and represented the church body of Holly Springs in several annual meetings such as the General Annual Synod of the United Church of Christ. 


He is currently working on his first published book project which is a collaborative work that shall be released in the latter part of 2023. He is very excited and proud of this work. 


He believes that God has equipped each of us with various gifts in order to serve our immediate

community and worldwide community towards spiritual, emotional, physical,  and economic



On a personal level, Pastor Brown loves traveling and spending time with the family. Pastor Brown states his greatest accomplishment in life other than his relationship with Christ has been happily married to Shandolyn since 1997.
