Neale Young, Ministry Assistant
Family: I grew up here on James Island and have attended James Island Baptist Church since 1972. I’ve been on staff here since 1997. I married my high-school sweetheart, Darryl, on September 27, 2003.
Greatest Influence: My parents have been a tremendous influence in my life. I am blessed to have been raised in a Christian home with parents who loved me unconditionally. One of the major influences in my Christian walk is author & speaker, Beth Moore. The first Bible study I did “with” her was “Breaking Free.” That was a life-changing event for me!
Favorite Books: I am a avid reader! Two of my favorite Christian fiction authors are Karen Kingsbury and Angela Hunt. I love a good mystery, too. Mary Higgins Clark is one of my favorite mystery writers.
Favorite Music/Musician: My MP3 player has a wide variety of music on it! I’ve got Christian artists Mercy Me, Third Day, Chris Tomlin and Lincoln Brewster, just to name a few. But you’ll also find me listening to Stevie Ray Vaughn, The Eagles, Eric Clapton, and classic rock from the 70’s!
Relaxation: I love to read in my spare time. I have to admit, I’m a HUGE fan of Survivor and The Amazing Race! My parents and sister (and her 3 children) live in Florence, SC. Once a month you can find me there, cheering one of the kids on in softball, baseball, basketball or cross-country running!
