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.
