A former pastor and faculty member of John Wesley College, Harold was first appointed to Haiti where he directed and taught in the Emmaus Vocational Bible School (now Emmaus Biblical Seminary) in Cap Haitien. Later, the Browns hosted Villa Ormiso in Port-au-Prince.

Harold was assigned to Russia in 1993 and served for four years as field leader, leading the OMS outreach in the former Soviet Union. Primarily involved with evangelism and church planting, OMS has established a seminary in Moscow.
The Browns have two adult daughters, Sharon and Angie.
