As a Christian Music Artist, Darin’s unique brand of ministry is touching the hearts and lives of people in Australia and across the world, including New Zealand, South East Asia, Africa, Europe and the United States. He has a heart felt desire to see lives changed, and every year thousands come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour through recordings, articles and live performances.
The Songs of a Christian Music Artist
As one of the great contemporary christian music artists of Australia, nearly all of the material recorded is original, written about life’s challenges and the lessons that the Lord has graciously taught Darin. They feature a wide and varied range of styles from rock to ballad, are aimed at the heart, dealing with issues that affect both men and women, Christians and the unchurched. They use humour and honest, open sharing of my own life and struggles, because I know that if I have walked a difficult road, others will be doing the same.
Darin has just written and recorded a full length feature Rock musical, CSI Jerusalem, which he has produced as an Easter radio play.
The Mission of a Christian Music Artist.
God said to Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations” (Jeremiah 1:5). Darin says, “this verse speaks to my heart, and challenges me to be a prophetic voice in song not only my own country of Australia, but to many other nations around the world. Music is unique in that it bypasses the reasoning of the brain and directly touches the heart. It is a tool which, if used effectively, can spearhead the gospel by preparing the hearts of hearers. By linking with one of Australia’s leading evangelists the dream of being a christian music artist with a prophetic voice in song is being realized, and many people are responding to the Gospel”.
Darin Browne is married to Fiona and has three beautiful girls, Tara (23), Kira (21) and Kristi (18). “We never did figure out how to make boys”, says Darin, “lost the recipe. The result is three young ladies of whom I am immensely proud.”
The Browne family live in a country town on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia, without doubt one of the most beautiful areas in the world in which to live.
Darin is currently Pastor at Ignite Community Church, Woombye, a church he actually started with Dr Tim Chimunda and a leadership team. This amazing church is a great support for Darin, providing prayer and fellowship for Darin and Fiona and releasing Darin as the Lord requires to minister around the world.
Darin is a Behavioural Optometrist by profession and, in his alleged spare time, in between tours and recording sessions, he has his own practice in Palmwoods. Fiona is a retired Real Estate agent with RE/MAX, and works tirelessly for their ministry of Lily House, a home for young pregnant girls and mothers in their area.
Involvement with Bill Newman International
and Christian Music Artist Darin
Darin is the Music Director for Bill Newman International.
Bill Newman is one of Australia’s leading evangelists. He is a powerful preacher and writer, and well received and accepted by church leaders from all denominations in Australia and other parts of the world.
“Bill Newman is awesome! Without doubt he is the most powerful drawer of souls that I have ever ministered with,” says Darin, “and most often we see thousands of people streaming to the front to stand for Jesus”.
He continues, “My role with Bill Newman involves singing solos and preparing the way for his message, as well as leading the worship during crusade meetings. I also film for his TV show, and design and operate some audio-visuals which we are using at meetings.”
The Lord is leading Bill and his team, of which Darin is a part, up into Asia with the gospel. They are living proof that powerful music and powerful preaching can work hand in hand to impact lives, churches and whole communities.
Darin continues to thrive as a christian music artist, pastor and evangelist both in Australia and around the world!
