Pastor Nevin Neal is the founding pastor of Bonners Ferry Baptist Church. He, along with his wife Jennibeth, and their children moved to Bonners Ferry in 2006 for the purpose of starting the church.
Pastor Neal was blessed with the privilege of being brought up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord by godly parents, and received the Lord as his Saviour as a 4 year old boy. At the age of seven he obeyed the Lord in baptism.
Folowing graduation from high school in 1997 God began to deal with his heart about presenting his body to God as a living sacrifice. In July of 1997 he surrendered his will to the Lord, and in September the Lord called him into the ministry.
The following eight years were spent growing, seeking God's will, and preparing; through training, serving, praying, and waiting.
Pastor Neal served under his father's direction at Swan Pond Baptist Church in Harriman, TN until the Lord called them to Bonners Ferry.
Pastor and Jennibeth have been married since June of 2000 and are blessed with eight beautiful children.
