why churches?


Todd Brown, founder of the Brown Church Development Group, began his ministry as a walk-on for Coach Tom Osborne at the University of Nebraska.  He played wide receiver for the Huskers from 1978-1982, while studying Engineering and Construction Management.  Utilizing the influence being a Nebraska football player provided him, Todd was actively involved with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) organization, sharing his testimony and advancing the gospel in hundreds of churches and schools.  


Driven by his love for Christ and the local church, he recognized a need for integration and collaboration within the church building process.  His passion to see each church realize its full potential while avoiding the typical roadblocks to success led him to create the Brown Church Development Group.  The result has been the relentless development of methods and processes that help the local church clarify its ministry, fulfill its mission, maintain its unity, and remain faithful to its testimony and outreach. Todd, and the Brown Church Development Group, have served hundreds of churches across the nation, expanding the kingdom of God with over 1.5 million square feet in church construction.

Utilizing an integrated approach, Todd’s ability to strategically position a church for growth has impacted churches far beyond traditional architecture and construction. Todd shares his expertise and heart through workshops and speaking engagements throughout the country.
