Who We Are

Our Beginning

It Started With A Girl Named Amanda

The Amanda Ranch was named for a little girl whose short few months of life launched an impact that ripples still today. When God chose to take Amanda to Heaven in 2001, her father Pastor Greg Neal knew that this journey of heartache was chosen for him by God to bring honor and glory to the name of Christ.

Pastor Neal’s desire to help others through their own struggles has been realized through the years in copious ways as he has pastored the people of Immanuel Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida. The wisdom gleaned in the dark days of his own grief has given him an astute compassion and awareness of the needs of the hurting.

The Amanda Ranch has been made possible through the help and generosity of those who understand the need of a place of support and healing. In 2021, Don Chitty, missionary to the Navajo people, saw the need for a retreat through Pastor Neal’s vision to help the hurting. His 57-acre working ranch was the perfect fit for the place that would become the Amanda Ranch, a ministry aimed at helping pastors, staff members, and laypeople to find healing and hope through the retreats and workshops hosted by Pastor Greg Neal and the staff of Immanuel Baptist Church.
