About Pastor Cedrick Brown

Cedrick Brown was born and raised in the city of Compton, California which some have labeled the “gang capital of the World”, and where he began to excel in the game of football. Football became a way out, landing him at Washington State University (1982-1986) where he continued to stand out as a four-year letterman and three-year starter at defensive back, while majoring in Hotel & Restaurant Management. He then signed as a free agent with the Philadelphia Eagles under the legendary “Buddy” Ryan (1986-1988).

Cedrick then transitioned into the business community with a brief stint in the hotel & restaurant industry with the Hyatt and Marriott corporations. His business career excelled for fifteen years in sales and executive sales management with Alcoa Inc.’s Home Exteriors’ Division where he managed thirty-three states in three time zones, and five hundred million dollars in sales.

Cedrick is a privileged public speaker for churches, family and outreach events, Men’s groups, Youth groups, public schools, corporations, multiethnic platforms, and more. He serves on the Board of Directors for World Team USA, a global mission agency dedicated to Church planting among unreached people groups. He is the author of several books: Influencing Your World; The Racial and Cultural Divide – Are We Still Prejudiced?; My Daily Business; Act Like A Man – Woman Can You Help Me?; He Loves Me; and Man, You Got This! Cedrick has also earned a Bachelor’s from Philadelphia Biblical University (now Cairn University), and his Master’s and Doctorate Degrees in Theology from Slidell Baptist Seminary. He is the founding pastor of Commitment Community Church located in Lindenwold—one of most racially and culturally diverse churches in the state of New Jersey, where he has served as lead pastor since 1996.

Cedrick has been married to his beautiful wife Lisa for thirty years. They have three wonderful adult children together: Joshua (wife Theresa), Jessica and Jaime.

If Every Christian

If every Christian would stand for Christ as they do for a flag... If every Christian would kneel before Christ as they do to protest the country behind a flag... If every Christian would speak for Christ as they do on social media... If every Christian would...
