Meet Your Neighbor: Willard Brewington, II

Willard Brewington

Featured neighbor Willard Brewington poses with some of the most meaningful pieces in his home on Glover St.

Hello, my name is Willard Brewington II and I have lived in the McElderry area for ten plus years, first on Jefferson St. and currently on Glover St. I have seen both the good and bad of the community but I firmly believe a change is around the corner. I am a security officer at the Johns Hopkins University with Allied Barton Security Services which is very rewarding because it allows me to interact with young people from around the world.

My place of worship is Ezekiel Baptist Church which is located on East Fayette and North Luzerne. Mr. Cephus Hill Jr. is the pastor. He, along with Jesus Christ, saved my life because I was lost and on the road to hell.

I have been with my mate, Mary, since 1992 and married since 2009. I have two children; a daughter Kia, 33 years old, and a son Willard III, 17 years old. Willard is currently at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School and was accepted to Frostburg State College.

I am known as The Gospel Poet because all of my creations are spirit based. The Lord gave me a gift and I intend to share it. I am a simple man who has been blessed because I’ve been there and done that! I can’t forget my sisters, Patricia and Sandra and their family members. In 2014 I want to work on a closer bond with family. Well that’s me in a nutshell. God bless and come visit me at Ezekiel one Sunday where music and good times reign supreme.

Hola, Mi nombre es Willard Brewington II y he vivido en la zona de McElderry durante más que diez años, por primera vez en la calle Jefferson y Norte Glover St. He visto lo bueno y lo malo de la comunidad, pero creo firmemente que un cambio es alrededor de la esquina. Yo soy un agente de seguridad de la Universidad Johns Hopkins con Allied Barton Security Services, que es muy gratificante, ya que me permite interactuar con los jóvenes de todo
el mundo.

Mi lugar de culto es la Iglesia Bautista de Ezequiel que se encuentra en el este de Fayette y el Norte de Luzerne. Sr. Cephus Hill Jr. es el pastor. Él, junto con Jesús Cristo, me salvó la vida porque estaba perdido y en el camino hacia el infierno.

He estado con mi compañera, María, desde 1992 y casado desde 2009. Tengo dos hijos, una hija, Kia, de 33 años, y un hijo Willard III, de 17 años. Willard se encuentra actualmente en Cristo Rey Jesuit High School y fue aceptado al Frostburg State College.

Me conocen como El Poeta Evangelio porque todas mis creaciones son basadas en el espíritu. El Señor me dio un regalo y tengo la intención de compartirla. ¡Yo soy un hombre sencillo que ha sido bendecido porque he estado allí y hecho eso!No puedo olvidar a mis hermanas, Patricia y Sandra y sus familiares. En 2014 quiero trabajar en un vínculo más estrecho con la familia. Pues ese soy yo en pocas palabras. Dios los bendiga y vengan a visitarme a Ezequiel un domingo donde la música y los buenos momentos reinan.

Fayette & Luzerne

By the Gospel Poet

Picture a dynamic pastor like T.D. Jakes
Mr. Cephus Hill Jr. has what it takes
He’s been there, done that as he brings the word
He leaves your spirit high, soaring like a bird
His congregation is known as The Faithful Few
To them, praising Jesus is nothing new
The choir is simply known as The Voices
And their song selection has many choices
The drums and keyboards are known as Mike + Mike
They can play anything that comes down the pike
We’ll give you a hug as you walk in the door
And as you leave, you’ll be asking for more
We don’t try to be fancy, we’re just down home
Come visit us once and you won’t want to roam
Ezekiel Baptist is our name
And we honor Jesus without any shame
Want good people, good music and the Bible to learn?
Come visit my church at Fayette and Luzerne!!
