Lead Pastor

Our Pastor

Cedrick Brown was born and raised the last of eight children in the city of Compton, California which some have labeled the “gang capitol of the World” and where he began to excel in the game of football. Football became a way-out of Compton by landing him at Washington State University (1982-86). At “WAZZU”,  Cedrick continued to stand out as a four-year letterman and three-year-starter at defensive back while majoring in Hotel & Restaurant Management. Frustrated that he didn’t get drafted, he received a call early the next morning from the Philadelphia Eagles who then signed him as a free-agent under the legendary “Buddy” Ryan (1986-1988).

Cedrick’s business career began in hotel and restaurant management with both the Hyatt and Marriott. He went on to spend fifteen years in sales and executive sales management with Alcoa Home Exteriors (A division of Alcoa Inc); he has since retired and  dedicates his “full-time” to ministry. Cedrick is a sought after public speaker for churches, family and outreach events, men’s groups, youth groups, public schools, businessmen’s events, and more; He is the author of “Influencing Your World”; “The Racial and Cultural Divide”; “Act Like A Man”; and “My Daily Business”; He also has a Bachelors from Philadelphia Biblical University, 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 the most racially and culturally diverse churches in the state of New Jersey and where he has served since 1996. Cedrick has been married to his beautiful wife Lisa for thirty years and they have three wonderful children together: Joshua (wife Theresa), Jessica and Jaime.

Elders

The ultimate governing authority at Commitment Church, under God, resides in the congregational members. The members affirm the ultimate servant leadership of the church to the elders, who therefore delegate the day-to-day operation of the church to the pastoral staff and volunteers then oversee their fulfillment of the God ordained mission of the church.
