Terry Brown

February 23, 1948 — October 2, 2021

Bro. Terry Brown, age 73, entered into the peace of God's presence in the early hours of October 2, 2021, at his home in Pope, MS.

The family invites you to join them, if you are able, to celebrate Terry's life on Monday, October 4th, at the Martin Willingham Memorial Chapel of Wells Funeral Home in Batesville, MS. The visitation begins at 1:00 P.M. and the service begins at 3:00 P.M.

Terry was born February 23, 1948 in Clarksdale, MS to the late R.E. and Bettye Black Brown, he attended Clarksdale High School, Mississippi State University, Mississippi College, and Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary in Memphis, TN.

Brother Terry and Patricia, his loving wife of fifty-four years, served the Lord faithfully together in pastoral ministry for decades in Mississippi and the Arkansas Delta. He also served through the years as Vice-President of World-Wide Church Planters, ministering multiple times in Moldova in Eastern Europe and in Mexico. He was currently serving as pastor of West Acres Baptist Church in West Helena, AR.

Terry loved to learn and loved to laugh. He loved his family deeply and they loved him. Most importantly, Terry loved the Lord with all his heart, his soul, and his mind. With a steadfast faith, he studied the Word of God and shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ continually. He now sees and knows in full what his earthly mind could only know in part. Praise be to God.

Terry was preceded in death by his parents, R.E. and Bettye Brown. He leaves behind his wife, Patricia Chandler Brown; their daughter, Shannon Brown Ellis (John Paul) of Pope, MS; son, Brian Brown (Judy) of Jackson, TN; four grandchildren, Lauren Brown Morris (Wil) of St. Louis, MO; Lindsey Brown Paris (Clay) of Jackson, TN; Katie Ellis of Pope, MS; Luke Ellis of Pope, MS and also a student at Mississippi State University; and one great-granddaughter, Presley Morris of St. Louis, MO.
