Neal spent his early life traveling the globe as an Army brat.  His dad retired in Columbia, where Neal finished high school and graduated from college (Go Gamecocks!).  After spending several years in Columbia, Neal caught the travel bug again and headed north - North Carolina, that is - to study for his master's degree (Go Blue Devils!).  As a Methodist pastor, he has served wonderful churches in Florence, Conway, and Spartanburg.  Neal has been the pastor of Trinity since June 2014, and while London remains his favorite place on earth, Spartanburg is becoming a close second.
