As the largest apostolic church in Arizona, Bishop Gregory W. Newman and Elect Lady Cynthia Newman 

are the founders of EL BETHEL Church in the City of Phoenix; where they have committed their lives to

helping people grasp the biblical concepts of living a victorious and stress-free life.


Since the summer of 1981 on the west side of the Greater Phoenix area, Bishop Gregory and

Elect Lady Cynthia have pastored some 39 years with very humble beginnings.


Being the visionaries that they are, Bishop and Elect Lady he went from a rented school auditorium 

to a shared church building, to erecting three buildings which EL BETHEL now sits on; with its stately 

pillars, majestic colors, and state of the art audio, video, and television recording equipment.


The vision continues as the live-streamed bible studies are shared by churches in different cities and

the services reach the masses creating a global church community.


Bishop Gregory and Lady Cynthia were united in marriage on June 9, 1973, and have been blessed

and highly favored with three beautiful children: Nicole, Gregory II, and Isaac who are all an

integral part of the ministry and three adorable grandchildren Ariana Elizabeth, Nicholas Colvi

and Noelle Liv.
