JD Neal attended Biola University where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical and Theological Studies. Currently, he attends Fuller Theological Seminary pursuing a master’s degree in theology. His experience with the Torrey Honors Institute has shown him the power and beauty of classical education and learning in the context of a loving community. JD Neal is a husband, a student, a theologian, a pastor and a lover of community. He is part of Housechurch in Whittier, and he loves to see and facilitate encounters with the terrible beauty of Jesus Christ in unexpected places — perhaps even on the dusty pages of books old and sweet and perhaps upon the lips of the people right next to us.
