      Bill Brown….
      Two quotes from his First Report to the Presbytery in January 1965!
      “We need to change the image of what is ‘evangelism.’ We need to confront every Church with a need to minister to their immediate community. We need to develop new techniques and new ways to touch those that thus far seem “untouchable.” It is time we study, seriously, the Mission of the Church…”
      “I am expecting great efforts, conscientious leadership, and able and unstinting cooperation from everyone so that we may reach out into new fields.”
