Lead Pastor G. Alan Browning and his Wife Mary, and history of the Greater Life Apostolic Church…
It was during a Sunday evening church service in 1986 that God began to deal with a young man about his calling to the ministry of serving others and sharing the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. It was a moment where God wanted to show him a vision of preaching to a large crowd in a distant place, and impacting many lives. Alan began to pursue his calling to the ministry, and attended Bible College in the fall of 1987 at Jackson College of Ministries, Jackson, Mississippi to pursue a degree in Religious Studies. Now 28 years later God is continuing to fulfill that calling into the ministry.
Alan and Mary Browning were married in April of 1989 and served numerous ministries as Sunday School teachers, Youth Pastor, and as Assistant to the Pastor. In July 1994 they planted a Home Missions church congregation in Louisville, Kentucky, and in May 1995 the church became autonomous. The church is now known as Greater Life Apostolic Church. Pastor Browning has been Lead Pastor of this growing congregation since that time. In the year 2009, a fulfillment of a dream came true for both of them that the congregation has now consistently exceeded the 200 mark in attendance for Sunday services, and they ended their 20 year secular careers as financial bankers to become fulltime in the ministry at Greater Life. This allows them to give more of themselves to God, their family, congregation, and ministries.
In addition, Pastor Browning continues to serve in his ninth year as District Secretary for the Kentucky District United Pentecostal Church, and Mary is serving in ministry as the Kentucky District Ladies Ministries Secretary. The Browning’s are blessed to have two daughters, and one son-in-law. Bethany and Justin who were married in March of 2012 and both work fulltime in financial banking and serve as the leaders of Life Student Ministries, and Meghan who has started her career in financial banking as well.
