Darrell Brown was born at Fort Bliss in Texas in 1956.  He grew up in New Mexico.  “If you divide New Mexico into four quarters, I have lived in each quarter for some part of my life,” he stated.  Darrell’s granddad, J. C. Brown, was an influential person in his early years.  Darrell attended New Mexico State University, because it promised the best education for his field of work.  He received his Bachelor of Science in Animal Science and his Masters in Agricultural Business.  He works as a ranch manager for the Yates Family.  Darrell is very satisfied with his career and feels that God has led him to appreciate and care for his creation and land. 

 

Darrell has been married to Michelle for thirty-six years.  They have three children; Danny, Lynda, and David.  One of his greatest accomplishments was raising his children “to know God and to have faith in Him.” (Duet. 6: 7 – 9)  Darrell defines family as a group of loving people who are related by the blood of Christ and have the desire to achieve the ultimate goal of heaven.  During the progression of his life, Darrell has learned to strive for excellence rather than perfection.  He also feels he is more accommodating of people and better accepts changes that happen in life.

 

Darrell has attended Hermosa Church of Christ for twenty-nine years and has been an elder for the last eleven years.  His purpose in life is to be an example for others, and through this example, lead others to know Christ.  This is achieved through constant struggle and study.  His favorite scripture is Matthew 6: 25 – 34.  25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? 28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
