TenPoint Coalition leader to depart

The Rev. Jeffrey Brown, the steady, pragmatic leader of the ­Boston TenPoint Coalition, is stepping down from the organization he helped to found 20 years ago, leaving a void in the city’s faith-based, crime fighting efforts that some say will be difficult to fill.
