After several months of filling the pulpit of New Testament Baptist Church, Pastor Tony Owen accepted the position of senior pastor on, Sunday, October 7, 2007.
Pastor Owen surrendered to the ministry in 1994. He earned a bachelor’s degree in theology from Carolina Bible College in Midland, North Carolina, and has been married to his wife, Cindy Simpson Owen, since November 1, 1990.
One of his greatest joys is to be able to help people through ministry. As pastor of New Testament Baptist Church, his vision is to evangelize the community and the world through all means available.
One of his favorite quotes is from Edward Judson, Adoniram Judson’s son, “Success in ministry depends upon sacrifice. If you succeed without sacrifice it’s because someone sacrificed before you. If you sacrifice without success someone will succeed after you.”
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."
