Greg Neal, B.S., D.D.


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.

Greg Neal graduated from Berean Christian Academy in May of 1992. He then went on to Hyles-Anderson College under the leadership of Dr. Jack Hyles. While there, he met his wife, Heather, and they were married on June 9, 1995. After graduating from college in 1996, he served as an assistant pastor, as co-pastor, and then as pastor of the Berean Baptist Church in Fleming Island, Florida.

On February 1, 2015, Berean Baptist Church merged with the Immanuel Baptist Church of Jacksonville, Florida. Upon this merge, Berean Baptist Church changed its name to Immanuel Baptist Church and changed its location to Jacksonville. Since moving to the Jacksonville location, Immanuel Baptist Church, under the leadership of Pastor Greg Neal, has seen many salvations, new families join the church, and young people surrender to God’s will.

Greatly burdened for the next generation, Pastor Greg Neal felt led by God to start the North Florida Baptist College to train the church leaders of tomorrow.
