"the People’s Mayor"
Kiawana Brown is a native of Detroit and a graduate of University of Phoenix where she majored in Business Management. She is married to Timothy Brown; together they serve as Overseers of Transforming Lives Ministries International of Detroit, MI. They have six amazing children and a very special grandson.
Kiawana has been serving in ministry over 15 years and been in the pastorate since 2009. She assumed full-time pastorship alongside her husband in 2016 after the loss of her Senior Pastor and mother Apostle Hattie Patterson. She also assumed the role as Chief Executive Officer of Transforming Lives Community Training Center; which is the community outreach arm of TLM. Her years of public service extends to nearly two decades- serving on various boards, spearheading community initatives and volunteer work throughout the city.
Kiawana is also the founder of Zoe House of Beauty, a non-profit organization in the Metro-Detroit area whose mission is to “Beautify Women from the Inside Out”. Her passion for serving and seeing people empowered is the driving force behind Zoe House of Beauty. Currently, the organization has a mentoring program called “Such a Lady” for young ladies ages 12-18. “Such a Lady” is designed to develop their character, confidence and class. This is done through education, exposure and mentorship. It’s a 10 week mentoring program.
Her unwavering faith is what she stands on. She believes God can do anything, but fail! One of her favorite scriptures is found in Mark 9:23 “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” She believes that God is going to bring reformation to the city of Detroit and heal our land. “Giving us beauty for ashes”
