John Neufeld

As the son of refugee parents who fled from the former Soviet Union, Dr. John Neufeld was born in Canada and came to Christ at the age of 18. Dr. Neufeld describes his coming to Christ in the following way: “The vast cultural difference between my home and church on the one hand, and the wider Canadian culture created a sense of dissonance in me. I was not sure which culture to identify with. After a long struggle, Christ met me and claimed me as His own.”


Dr. Neufeld is a graduate of Columbia Bible College (Biblical Studies), the University of Saskatchewan (B.A.), Fuller Theological Seminary (M.Div.) and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (D.Min.).

Dr. John Neufeld joined Back to the Bible Canada after 30 years of serving in pastoral ministry, both as church planter and senior pastor. He is known both nationally and internationally for excellence in expositional Bible teaching. Prior to joining Back to the Bible Canada, Dr. Neufeld lead one of the largest churches in Canada as Senior Pastor for 15 years. He has spoken widely at churches, conferences and seminars throughout North America, and internationally.

He and his wife Kathy reside in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. They have been married for 36 years and have three adult children and five grandchildren.
