He attended the University of Evansville studying religion, and holds a Bachelor of Science in Political Science from the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville, IN.

He formerly served as the regional director of the Indiana Small Business Development Corporation.

Rev. Brooks has been a minister since February 3, 1980.  He has served as the Pastoral Assistant at Seventh Street Baptist Church under the leadership of his father, Dr. Anthony Brooks, Sr. and he served as the Pastor of Calvary Church, both of Henderson, KY.

He has been the pastor of Memorial Baptist Church since 1993.  Under his leadership, the congregation has grown to over 4,500 members in 13 years.  One of his greatest joys is saving souls, and the Memorial Church family calls him the “One Begging Soul Searching Preacher.”  He also gained the motto:  “Emphasis on Souls Not Clothes.”  The church offers over 50 ministries to the Evansville community which includes:  a Childcare Center, Substance Abuse Counseling, Youth Educational Programs, Family Life Components, Women’s/Men’s Ministries, and many others.

Memorial Baptist Church has served as an effective model of holistic ministry.  In 1994, Rev.

Rev. Brooks has served on numerous boards.  He currently serves on several civic and community boards including Chairman of the Board, Memorial Community Development Corporation; Evansville Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce; University of Southern Indiana Business School Board of Advisors; Better Business Bureau, Chairman of the Board of Directors; City of Evansville Economic Development Commission; President of the Evansville Police Merit Commission; Advisory Board of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis; Community Development Council Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis; City of Evansville Housing Task Force Commission; and the Southwestern Indiana Economic Development Commission.  In 2011, Rev. Brooks was invited and participated in the Oxford University Roundtable in Great Britain.

He has been the recipient of numerous awards, including:  Honorary Judge of Daviess County, Kentucky; Outstanding Young American Black Citizen of the Year in Henderson, Kentucky; Citizen Award by the Indiana General Assembly; Sagamore of the Wabash; Paul Harris Fellow by the Evansville Rotary Club; Honored by the State of Indiana General Assembly; Leadership Award by Leadership of Evansville; Outstanding Citizenship Award by Evansville NAACP; Indiana Black Expo – 1999 Award; Lt.

Mission Ministry

Did you know that your old shoes can help feed your neighbor?

During the month of February, the MBC Mission Ministry will be supporting our brothers and sisters in Christ of Ebenezer Baptist Church.

Harvest Time Inner City Ministries, an outreach ministry of Ebenezer, serves hot meals to members of our community several days a week. These meals are funded, in part, by proceeds from Funds2orgs.com, an organization that REPURPOSES your old shoes. No matter the condition! Those that can be worn, are distributed to third-world countries. Shoes that are beyond use are processed into playground material.

A collection box is located in the auxiliary office. You may place your clean, used shoes there and they will be delivered weekly to Harvest Time.

You may also give your donations to any member of the MBC Mission Ministry or see Missionary Gina C. Davis (8:00 service) if you have questions or large donations.
