Pastor Neil Shupp graduated from The King’s College in Briarcliff Manor, NY in 1978. From 1978 to 1995 he taught history in four different Christian schools, the last two of which he served in the capacity of principal as well.
While serving at Latham Christian Academy and sensing the call of the Lord into the pastorate, he shared this with the late Pastor George Whitman of Latham Bible Baptist Church.
In May of 1995 the church ordained him to the gospel ministry and in November of that year he was called by First Baptist to be their pastor.
He and his wife Chris are the parents of four grown children: Heather, Ryan, Eric, and Ethan. They have a daughter-in law, Stephanie, and two lively twin grandsons, Max and Ben.
