At the age of five, his parents migrated to Mangrove Cay, Andros where he attended Victoria Point Primary School, and Mangrove Cay High.  He returned to Nassau at the age of 18. His first employment was at the Gladstone Chicken Farm where he served as a delivery man for two years.   He also worked at Caribbean Landscape Ltd. for three years.  He later transitioned to the position of a Parasail Boat captain, a job he has held for 22 years.

In 2014, Minister Newton returned for a visit to his alma mater, Mangrove Cay High.  At this time, during the General Assembly, one male student gave his life to the Lord.   Bibles were also distributed to the students. The trip was a success – To God be the Glory!
