Henry Newman

- Our elder brother, Elder Henry Guy Newman, past from this life in the early morning hours of Thursday, May, 19, 2016 and immediately took his heavenly flight, to forever be in the presence of his Savior. We give God the praise for his life, his dedication to the cause of Christ and for freeing Bro. Henry from his suffering here on earth. Bro. Henry was born on “D-Day”, June 6, 1944 to parent Elder Jerry and Sis. Letha Faye (Rogers) Newman. He is the brother of Sis. Celia Kreie and Sis. Marilyn Hughes. Bro. Newman was blessed to marry the love of his life, Sis. Emma Jean Stewart, on December 18, 1965. Sis. Emma Jean was the daughter of Sis. Vesta Rachel and Bro. James Thomas Stewart, from the Elk Creek Primitive Baptist Church in Elk City, Oklahoma. The Newman’s were blessed with three children, Thomas, Michael and Bradley Newman. The Elk Creek Church called for Bro. Henry’s ordination to the ministry in 1989. He was ordained on November 4th of that same year. He would go on to serve as pastor of the Elk Creek Church, the Shiloh Primitive Baptist Church in Crescent, Oklahoma, the Walnut Valley Primitive Baptist Church in Blanchard, Oklahoma and others.
