Rev. Tony E. Brewington began his ministry at Cape Fear Baptist Church as the Interim Pastor in January 2017. He was ordained into the ministry by his home church, Berea Baptist, in Pembroke, NC in 1968 to serve as pastor of First Baptist Church in Pembroke while attending Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC.
Upon earning a Master's in Divinity from SBTS in 1970, he was employed by the Burnt Swamp Baptist Association as Director of Missions and served until 1986 when he joined the administrative staff at Robeson Community College serving until retirement in 2007. During that time he also served as bi-vocational pastor of Mt. Elim Baptist Church in Hoke County, retiring from the pastorate in 2011 after 20 years with that church family.
Since retirement, Rev. Brewington has assisted four churches as Interim and provided consultation with other pastors while supporting a benevolent ministry in the Burnt Swamp Association for Bible Memory Verse participants and for ministers with special needs. Throughout his ministry, his wife and companion, Peggy, has provided valuable services to church programs using personal and professional gifts in teaching, counseling, and music ministry.
