Clinton Miller was born in Brooklyn, New York. He earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in History from Southern Connecticut State University.
Rev. Miller first felt the divine calling of the gospel ministry at the age of 19. He did not actively pursue the vocation of ministry until he was a seminarian at Yale University. Upon graduation from divinity school in 1994, he continued training for the ministry as an intern minister at Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, New York City, under the guidance of Rev. Calvin O. Butts. Rev. Miller later became the youth minister.
In October of 2000, Rev. Miller was called to pastor Brown Memorial Baptist Church.
Since assuming the pastorate at Brown, Rev. Miller has applied the functions of traditional ministry to this community of believers. Through preaching, counseling and visitation, he has set a tone that will allow Brown Memorial’s vision to be realized.
Currently Brown Memorial plans on launching new educational programs, a summer day camp and a long awaited banquet facility in the newly built church annex. It is Pastor Miller’s vision to stabilize the ministry of Brown Memorial by demonstrating consistent Christian service, strong financial administration and sound preaching. The mission of his ministry at Brown Memorial is to introduce the Salvation of Jesus Christ to individuals through dynamic worship, relevant Christian education, responsible stewardship, inclusive fellowship and impacting evangelism. Rev. Miller taught in the N.Y.C Public School system for four years before entering full time ministry.
Within his tenure at Brown Memorial, the church has built a fellowship hall, renovated its sanctuary and started a community development corporation. More importantly, it has placed an emphasis on ministry and service to the Brooklyn community and to New York City.
Rev. Miller has served on various boards including The Harlem YMCA, The Bedford Stuyvesant YMCA, The Brooklyn chapter of the American Red Cross and Bishop Loughlin Board of Governors. He also served as chaplain for the New York Liberty of the WNBA.
Rev. Miller was ordained by the American Baptist Churches and the United Missionary Baptist Association of Greater New York. He attempts to build his ministry around Christian concepts of fairness, justice and the development of genuine Christian community.
