Mozella Louise Brown was granted her angel wings on November 20, 2018. During her final days, she was surrounded by loving family and friends that she had touched in an amazing way throughout her short, yet very memorable life.

A close friend recently asked Mozella a probing question, “If you had to do college over again, would you choose the same field of study?” Mozella’s responded, “I would head straight for ministry. I would focus on ministry immediately.” Minister Mozella believed that God called her to minister to the local church and leadership development according to the mandate of Ephesians 4:11-16 - to equip the saints for the work of ministry. She loved the Lord and had a passion to see others walk in the calling of God for their lives and to experience the fullness of Christ.

Mozella was born on January 21, 1965, the second-born child of the late Mr. and Mrs. John H. Brown, Sr. of Clarksdale (Roundaway), Mississippi. She accepted Christ at the age of seven in an annual revival (complete with mourner’s bench and praying mothers) under the leadership of the late Pastor James Anderson and her uncle, Coolidge Brown, at Azion Missionary Baptist Church near Alligator, Mississippi. That was just the beginning. Her first Bible Study was through the Tree House Club in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Mozella acknowledged her call to preach and teach in 2000.

Over the years, Minister Brown, as she became known, was influenced by many great men and women of the Gospel, including her mother, the late Mrs. Fannie Givens Brown, an evangelist in her own right; Missionary Evangelist Mabel Nunn; the late Dr. Robert E. Price, Pastor of New Mt. Zion Baptist Church; Dr. Tony Evans, Pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship; Pastor Spencer Hughes, Pastor of Heaven’s Journey Fellowship Church; her current pastor, Pastor Jeffery Brown; and a host of other pastors, evangelists, and teachers.

She delightfully and humbly served over the years in various areas of ministry including Music and Choir, Singles, Single Parents, Youth and Children, New Member, Jail and Juvenile Detention Ministry, and Women’s Ministry. She served as an Associate Minister at Heaven’s Journey Fellowship Church in Wylie, Texas, until 2016, when she became a founding member of Grace Word Fellowship Ministries in Wylie, Texas. At the time of her transition, Mozella served as Executive Pastor at Grace Word Fellowship Ministries under the leadership of Pastors Jeffery L. Brown and Adrienne Brown.  

An accomplished graduate of the University of Mississippi, Mozella earned a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting in 1986. She was a member of the Hall of Fame, Who’s Who Among Students in Colleges and Universities, Delta Sigma Pi, and the distinguished Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. She later continued her education in Public Relations and Special Events Planning at Richland Community College. 

Mozella was the Founder and President of M.L. Brown and Associates. With over 20 years of event planning and management experience, she successfully executed several national faith-based conferences and events for William Morris Endeavor, Vizient, Thomas Nelson Live Events, Thomas Nelson Publishers (God’s Leading Ladies), Women of Faith, Inc., and The Urban Alternative. She was a Certified Meeting Professional and the recipient of the Senior Professionals Industry Network’s 40 over 40 Award for Veteran Planners.

Mozella was predeceased by her parents. Those left to cherish precious memories include her loving siblings: Jerry Givens (Tylonia) of Jackson, Mississippi, John Brown (Cassandra) of Tupelo, Mississippi, Alvin Brown (Helen) of Gulfport, Mississippi, Dwight Starks (Teresa) of Clarksdale, Mississippi, Jeffery Brown (Adrienne) of  Wylie, Texas, Lakesha Brown of Mesquite, Texas, Sonya Brown-Skipper (Leroy) of Sarah, Mississippi, Andre Brown (Eugenia) of Atlanta, Georgia, and godsister, Colandra Thomas of Clarksdale, Mississippi; 17 nieces and nephews (Tonya, Harrison, Courtney, Little Edward, Jakirah, Tre’Shawna, Ja’Shauna, Dwight, Janiya, Carrington, Leeland, Alixious, Alixzandur, Patricia, Jordan, Jaylen, and Johnathon); three godchildren (Solomon, Kenneth, Brandy); and a host of other relatives and dear friends.
