Our Elders

Elder Matt Brown and family

Elder Matt Brown

Matt has been an elder of Faith Baptist Church since January 2015. He and his wife, Karen, were married in 1994 and have four sons. He is a software engineer by trade. If you talk to him, you’ll notice the traces of being a transplant from the southwestern US – Arizona and Texas in particular.
The Brown family moved to southern New Hampshire from Karen’s home state of Maine in 1995, relocated to eastern Pennsylvania to serve a church in Coopersburg in 2002, and returned to New Hampshire in 2013.
