Hi I'm Neil
I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Portland, Oregon, and joined the church when I was 26 years old.
I am a convert to the church. After I joined the church, I moved to Atlanta, Georgia to begin my sports executive career with the Atlanta Braves. I met my wife, who is also a convert to the church, in our ward. We have two children and now reside in Florida. In my spare time I enjoy doing family history research, photography, and of course, sports.
Why I am a Mormon
Two key points of doctrine led me to investigate the church – that God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, are separate and distinct beings (unlike the Trinity concept that I was taught in the Lutheran faith), and the fact that there is no paid clergy. When I was given a Book of Mormon, I read it cover to cover and put Moroni’s promise to the test. I prayed and received my witness through the power of the Holy Ghost that the Book of Mormon is true, and that Joseph Smith was a prophet who restored the gospel.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by supporting my family, accepting callings to serve in the church and by organizing an annual service project in the community.
