Gregg NewtonSenior Pastor
God called me to serve as pastor of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in June of 1997. I thank God for the blessing and opportunity to serve him in the Sandhills for these past 20 years. The Lord has blessed me to pastor a very loving, faithful, caring and wonderful church and we have seen the Lord do amazing and marvelous things in our church and in our community.
I was born and raised in the small town of Burgaw just outside of Wilmington, NC. I married my wife Drenda on January 4, 1986 and we have 2 daughters Heather and Courtney.
I was raised in a great Christian home and thank God for blessing me with Godly parents. At the age of 11, I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior. In September of 1983 God blessed me mightily by calling me to the ministry at the age of 20.
I received my bachelors degree from UNC-Wilmington in 1985 and my Masters of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC. God has allowed me to pastor and minister at 3 other churches before calling me to Pleasant Hill. The past 33 years has truly been incredible to be able to serve our Lord and I am amazed and thankful that he has called me to preach and to serve him.
