The Rev. Neil G. Lebhar grew up in Westport, Conn. He has been rector of the Church of Redeemer (Anglican) in Jacksonville, Florida since 1988. Neil loves the Lord, his family, and his calling to teach the Scriptures and lead in Biblical renewal, worship, outreach and fellowship. Neil and his wife Marcia were married in 1971 and they have a son Peter at FSU and two married daughters, Sarah (married to Jon Hall), and Katie (married to Paul Black). Sarah and her husband Jon Hall have a son Benjamin and a daughter Miriam. The Lebhars also have a married foster daughter named Dawn Thompson who has two sons and a daughter. Neil served as assistant rector of Truro Church in Fairfax, Virginia from 1979-1988. Before seminary Neil was the field director of the Fellowship of Christians in Universities and Schools (FOCUS), a ministry to private school students. Neil came to faith in the Messiah through the ministry of FOCUS while a senior at the Loomis School in Connecticut, his home state. He has led countless trips to Israel. Neil was vice-chairman of the Jacksonville Billy Graham Crusade in 2000. Neil received his B.A. from Princeton University (1972) and his Master’s degrees from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (1976) and Virginia Seminary (1978).
