Ralph Brown, pastor of Faith Methodist Church, says the gold dust and miracles are "blessed addendums" but not the priority at his church. "That's not the major joy--the major joy is the changed lives," Brown told Charisma.New Bern, Brown said, was headquarters for Blackbeard the Pirate and later a central depot for slave traders.The town has always been considered as a strong seat of demonic activity, he noted. Brown said he grew up in the Pentecostal Free Will Baptist Church, "but it did not take."After going to college and leaving church, he became a Christian in 1976.He got involved in a Methodist church in Greenville, N.C., which he later pastored.Brown attended Oral Roberts University and felt called to be an "evangelist of the Holy Spirit" in the United Methodist Church. "That was amazing to me because I knew so little about the Holy Spirit and was not baptized in the Holy Spirit," he said.Brown said not only was he not interested in the baptism of the Holy Spirit, he "outright shunned it."That changed in 1986 when his son Phillip, then 2 years old, fell into a septic tank.The doctor told Brown and his wife, Jeannie, that Phillip was expected to die that night. Brown cried out to God for help.The Holy Spirit that Brown had rejected now filled him, and he began to pray in tongues for the first time.The next morning, the doctor came in and said the child's lungs were "as clear as mine and there's no explanation for it," Brown said. They were later told that through the years, 12 children had fallen into septic tanks and every one had died.Phillip never even developed a symptom.From then on, Brown began preaching about the Holy Spirit's power and developed greater spiritual hunger. When Brown began pastoring Faith Methodist in 1995, he thought he was stepping into a healthy situation.But he found a church that struggled financially and spiritually because its congregation was divided. "Nobody trusted the committees, the boards.They didn't trust one another and least of all they didn't trust the pastor," he said.As manifestations of the Holy Spirit began to occur, some church members became disgruntled."There was one precious brother who made the public statement that there was no place for the Holy Spirit in a worship service," Brown said. But as some people left, others came and the Holy Spirit continued to move.Last November, Brown went to France with Virginia-based revivalist Ruth Ward Heflin."I believe that the closer we get to the coming of Christ, the more signs and wonders we will see," Brown said."The gold dust was not such a huge shock to me. In the Old Testament, the bridegroom would adorn the bride with gold right before the wedding.It could just be the Lord is doing this as a sign to His bride right before the rapture." Although his congregation had already experienced "holy laughter," some members weren't sure what to think of the gold dust.While attending a meeting with Brazilian revivalist Silvania Machado, Brown's minister of music "just got up with her husband and ran out of the meeting, she was just so overwhelmed."Later at Faith Church, gold dust began appearing on the music leader when she began worship.She would wash it off, but it would come back when she began worshiping God, he said. "It was perplexing to some of the people but as it began to happen to them, it was undeniable," he said. "I like to think of the Methodists as a barometer," Brown said.

But the unusual phenomena being experienced are not the major joy, according to Ralph Brown, pastor of Faith Methodist Church.The major joy is the changed lives.We're seeing people saved and healed and delivered and made whole.We're not concentrating on signs and wonders-we're concentrating on King Jesus..Pastor at Faith Church since 1995, Brown said that he believed more signs and wonders will be seen as the coming of Christ gets closer.The gold dust was not such a huge shock to me. In the Old Testament, the bridegroom would adorn the bride with gold right before the wedding.It could just be the Lord is doing this as a sign to His bride right before the rapture..Brown said that Methodists were a barometer for what was happening in the church.If you see the Methodists getting happy in the Holy Spirit, then you know it's a move of God. Wynn said that he believed God was drawing United Methodists back to their historic roots in the Holiness movement.Brown attended Oral Roberts University and felt called to be an evangelist of the Holy Spirit in the United Methodist Church, even though he outright shunned the baptism of the Holy Spirit.Then in 1986 his toddler son fell into a septic tank, and doctors said he would die.As Brown prayed for his son he began to speak in tongues, and the next morning his son was better.Some people have left Faith Church since he arrived, but others have come in their place.When gold dust first began to appear it was perplexing to some…but as it began to happen to them, it was undeniable..Read the full report of revival in New Bern in the October issue of Charisma magazine.

Update April-May 2005

PASTOR RALPH W. BROWN, JR. IS THE PASTOR OF EAST SIDE BAPTIST CHURCH AND ACADEMY.
He has been there almost a year now. PASTOR RALPH BROWN HAD INSTIGATED AN AFTERNOON SERVICE DURING THE SNOW MONTHS. Pastor Brown had taught his people well. Years ago, Pastor Ralph Brown was a youth pastor in another State--I think it was Michigan. It was there that he and his wife, as a young bride and groom, took two young boys into their home, raised them and adopted them. Their parents did not want their sons. Can you imagine? I met one of the young men and he seems to be a radiant Christian with a wonderful smile.
