Pastor Mike Newburger

Pastor Newburger is a Maryland native. He met his wife Kelly in high school when she invited him to attend her church. He received Christ as his Savior after a revival service at the First Baptist Church of Deale, Maryland. Mike and Kelly were married after both graduated from college.

Pastor Newburger has earned a Four Year Graduate Diploma in Biblical Studies from Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City, OK. He has served in two churches as a ministry intern and in one as an Associate Pastor. In 2010, the Newburgers moved to Astoria, Queens to work under the ministry of the Open Door Bible Baptist Church.

There they began to learn the realities of life and ministry in the inner-city. This church is now sending them to Greenpoint to "plant" a new church. Pastor Newburger was formally ordained by the Open Door Bible Baptist Church of Astoria in 2013.

The Newburgers reside in Greenpoint, Brooklyn with their three children.
