Dr. Greg Neal
Dr. Greg Neal was born on February 20, 1974, to Tom and Becky Neal. He had the privilege of growing up as a "preacher's kid" in a godly, Christian home. He was saved at the age of four and surrendered to preach at the early age of six. A driving influence in his life is that he has been exposed to great preachers and men of God through personal relationships since he was a child. This has inspired his determination to serve the Lord.
After graduating from Berean Christian Academy, he enrolled in Hyles-Anderson College in Hammond, Indiana, in the fall of 1992. While under Dr. Jack Hyles' ministry at First Baptist Church of Hammond and Hyles-Anderson College, he met and married the former Heather Healy on June 9, 1995. The Lord has graciously blessed their home with four daughters.
While attending Hyles-Anderson College, he earned a Bachelors of Science degree in August of 1996. Upon graduation, he served faithfully in the ministries of Berean Baptist Church in Fleming Island, Florida. During this time, he was honored with a degree of Doctor of Divinity from Berean Baptist College.
In 2001, Dr. Neal's daughter, Amanda, went to Heaven at eight months of age. Through her death, many doors have been opened for him to help others in similar situations. God allowed him to author An Angel Among Us and The Journey Through Heartache which have become valuable resources in helping others deal with their heartache.
In March of 2009, upon the recommendation of the deacon board and the overwhelming support of the church people, Dr. Greg Neal was voted in as the co-pastor of Berean Baptist Church. His leadership has helped provide stability in the present and a clear vision for the future. Dr. Neal also serves as President of Berean Baptist College.
On Transition Sunday
in January of 2013, Dr. Greg Neal became the pastor of Berean Baptist Church. Having served as an assistant pastor for twelve years and the co-pastor for four years has given him a great vision to see more people reached and lives changed in our community, as well as a great burden to help missionaries and see many people saved around the world.
