Mike Neglia - Elder
Michael Neglia is Redeeming Grace Fellowship's temporary Worship Leader. This is true because he's really a bass player, and only fakes playing the guitar. He is highly dependent on the chorus helpers to make it appear he's anywhere close to singing in tune. This gives Psalm 98:4, "Make a joyful noise unto the Lord", a quite literal meaning. Mike is an avid reader of theology books, church history books, as well as the fantasy writings of J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, and others. He is also a huge Star Wars geek and isn't ashamed to admit it. Mike has received his Bachelor's and Master’s degrees in Music Education from the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College, and has been a ninth grade Orchestra Teacher in the Brentwood Union Free School District since 1998. He and his lovely wife, Heidi have one exceptional son, Logan, and live in Hauppauge.

He is the proud father of Hunter, Kaylah and Taylor, a diehard Steeler fan, and a chocoholic.
Dan Herrmann - Deacon
Ben Arnoux - Deacon
Ben serves as one of the deacons at Redeeming Grace Fellowship. He often refers to himself as a “Junior Deacon”, because even though he enjoys serving the Lord, he sometimes can’t remember which light switch controls what. As a Letter Carrier for the USPS, Ben uses his occupation as a way to share his faith with people he encounters, as God allows. He and his wiser, prettier half Ruby, homeschool their four wonderful kids: Seraph, Caleb, Ethan, and Kayla. His hobbies also include filmmaking, photography, and bed-side snack-smuggling.
