ABOUT OUR FOUNDERS BISHOP GREGORY & ELECT LADY CYNTHIA NEWMAN

Bishop Gregory W. Newman was born on August 25, 1953 in Phoenix, AZ, the sixth child of Dr. James and Mrs. Carleste Newman. As a very precocious and smart child, young Gregory attended church with his mother at South Minister Presbyterian Church where Dr. Benjamin Brooks served as pastor.

 

Elect Lady Cynthia Newman was born on September 26, 1955, the 2nd child of Raymond and Mary Moya. Her mother’s desire to raise her children in the fear of God led her to First Pentecostal Church where young Cynthia aided her mother who served as the lead armor bearer for the Bishop’s wife Mother Lelar Eddings. Little did Mother Mary Brown who later remarried know, as she served the Bishop’s wife; she was raising the future Bishop’s wife of the same Diocese.

 

It was during this time at church that our First Lady met our Pastor when she was just 13 years old in the 8th Grade and Bishop was 15. Bishop excelled academically in all levels of education and had a natural athletic ability. In high school and college our pastor was the star quarterback and was featured in several newspaper articles before a leg injury that halted his achievements. Shortly after, Bishop began a budding career in the newly developing computer industry where he worked in operations and technical support.

 

First Lady’s academic abilities led her to pursue a career as a psychologist, however, after a life-changing accident with one of her children, she shelved her academic pursuits and vowed to dedicate her life’s work to raising her children. Ironically her love and study of medicine continued and people often seek her advice, which has proven to be their best course of action. Even now during hospital visits First Lady’s knowledge and questions often lead to doctors and nurses asking for her credentials.

​On June 9, 1973 Bishop Gregory and Elect Lady Cynthia were knit together in holy matrimony and through this union, God sent us Nicole, Gregory II, and Isaac.
