Bishop J. Alan Neal


Bishop Neal, the Senior Pastor of Agape Christian Faith Center in Ramstein-Miesenbach, Germany, is a visionary leader. In addition, he serves as the Presiding Bishop and CEO of Elijah’s Bread Ministers, Inc. [EBM], an organization primarily established to evangelize and provide support to the numerous unreached people groups within the 10/40 Window. Moreover, EBM offers spiritual leadership and cover to churches in Europe, Asia, and North America. Bishop Neal’s influence extends globally as he has planted and currently oversees over 120 churches in nine countries spanning four continents, including Germany, England, The Netherlands, France, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, India, Nigeria, and the United States.
Originally from Lexington, Kentucky, Bishop Neal received his early Christian education and training in the Baptist Church. In 1977, he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, following which he was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army. He later obtained a Master of Public Administration degree from the University of Missouri at Kansas City, Missouri, in 1989. In recognition of his remarkable apostolic achievements in church planting, missions, and leadership development, The Saint Thomas Christian College of Jacksonville, Florida, awarded him an Honorary Doctorate Degree in 2005.

Bishop Neal established the AGAPE Christian Faith Center in Germany in April 1995. The ministry’s phenomenal physical and spiritual growth in Europe and Asia demanded his full attention, prompting him to retire from a distinguished twenty-year military career as a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army to concentrate entirely on the ministry. As a highly decorated combat veteran, Bishop Neal deeply understands the art of war, discipline, and leadership.

Bishop Neal has refocused this unique talent and experience toward spreading the gospel throughout Europe and Asia. Bishop Neal is married to the former Wanda Jacquelyn Harris of Kansas City, Missouri, and has two married daughters.
