Huntley Brown grew up in a Christian home on the island of Jamaica. His parents, Myrtle and Alpheus Brown, taught him what it means to be a Christian, and at an early age he accepted Christ. Without knowing how to read music, he learned to play the piano by imitating his brothers. His Father who played the accordion and a little piano gave Huntley some basic instructions, and he also received instructions from Mr. Paul Tucker, a family friend. Mostly though, he learned by listening to different recordings.
Huntley’s music ministry has taken him all over the world, with TV, radio, and concert appearances. In the United States, he has performed from coast to coast, with ministry opportunities at churches of every size and denomination. He is now the pianist for Ruth Graham and Friends Ministries and also ministers with the Franklin Graham team.
Huntley became an ordained minister in 2007 by the Evangelical Church Alliance International and now serves on the board. In 2011 Huntley became an Artist Ambassador for Kids Alive International a group dedicated to rescuing kids around the world.
Just as he has to practice piano every day, Huntley has to spend time daily in the Word and in prayer. Music is an offering of praise, a gift that he wants to give back to God. His continual prayer is that the glory of God will shine through the notes, and the Holy Spirit will send the music straight to the heart, drawing people to the abundance of life in Christ.

SIMULCAST with David Platt (author of Radical)
Good Friday – April 18, 2014 – 6:00 pm to 12:00am (6 hours)
First Baptist Church, Red Bud, 1445 W. Market St., Red Bud, IL
The event is called Secret Church, in honor of our persecuted brother and sisters around the world who gather to worship in secret, often for many hours at a time.
TOPIC: The Cross and Everyday Life – From the moment we wake up in the morning to the moment we lie down to sleep at night, how does the death of Christ on the cross transform every single detail of our day? How does the cross compel daily disciplines like prayer and Bible reading or a regular routine of fasting and worship? How does the cross change the way we view our jobs and vocations throughout the day as well as the way we rest and relax at the end of the day? What, if any, unique effect does the cross have on the ways we spend our time, set our priorities, make our decisions, and love our neighbors? How does the cross change the way we view food and exercise, sports and entertainment in this world? The Bible says, “Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). So how do we do that? And how does the cross of Christ inevitably enable us to do that? During this Secret Church, as we explore the implications of the death of Christ for our daily lives, we will discover the exhilarating joy that is found in following Jesus to the glory of God on a moment-by-moment, day-by-day basis.
