Elder Chair (pictured with wife, Sue)

My name is Neil Banman.  My wife, Sue, and I have been married since 2002 and are blessed with 3 children.  We started attending Gospel Fellowship Chapel, now Redemption Bible Chapel St Thomas, since 2013.  We found ourselves captivated by the exegetical preaching and blessed by the example of so many others desiring to understand and apply God’s word to their lives.  We loved hearing God’s Word preached one brick at a time as it has helped us personally to build a better foundation for our faith.


I work as a business lender for a local credit union.  I play recreational softball and squash, and enjoy backcountry canoeing.  Along with serving as an elder, I have served in Kids Ministry and as a small group leader.


My heart has truly been encouraged knowing that Christ is the full source of my salvation and peace between me, a sinner, and God.  Romans 5:1 says “Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ”.
