I am pleased to start a new ministry on the eastside of Orlando. God has commissioned me, along with my wife, to teach and preach the "true" Gospel of Jesus Christ that focuses on the Grace and Mercy God has extended to all who receives the adoption of Sonship. In doing so, this will help to enlighten the world about the Kingdom of God being established in the earth in a time called, now.

My quest to know Him began at an early age, which lead me to seek a relationship with God and ministerial development under the powerful leadership of the late Bishop R. B. Hemingway in Orlando, FL for almost 15 years. For the past 13 years, I have served as Associate Pastor under Apostle Edward Pitts and Prophetess Mary Pitts at Life Focus Ministries Orlando.

I will endeavor to awaken your true identity to redeem your authority in the Kingdom of God. I believe that God has called all men unto Himself and given all men an assignment according to God's good purpose.

I also believe that marriage and family are the first institutions that God ordained and sanctified,to establish God's love in the earth. After 39 years of marriage, I am blessed to have two awesome adult children, a wonderful daughter-in-law and two beautiful grand daughters.

I welcome you to fellowship with us!

God's blessings upon you,

Pastor Gary Newton

I'm excited about this special time in my life...the manifestation of the Sons of God!  After more than 34 years of ministry, walking with God is more exciting than when I started under the distinquished leadership of the late Bishop R. B. Hemingway of New Jerusalem Church of God in Orlando, FL.  After 39 years of marriage, my husband and I have embarked on a new journey to minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ on the eastside of Orlando.  We will bring a clear vision and a powerful purpose to God's WORD...a more sure word to stay Kingdom focused.

We are expanding the vision of Apostle Edward Pitts and Prophetess Mary Pitts of Life Focus Ministries Orlando, where we were mentored for the past 13 years to focus on life, and live, and to see Christ in every man.  I know the discomforts of change and the many detours of life will cause you to go within (spirit) to know the Lord God.  This truth has enabled me to deliver the Gospel with wisdom and understanding.

Please come and join us on this awesome journey with the Lord. The one gift I have to offer you is LOVE!

Warm regards,

Pastor Pea
