THE HISTORY OF BACK TO THE BIBLE CANADA
Established in 1957 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Back to the Bible Canada is a non-denominational Bible teaching and engagement ministry dedicated to connecting people to God through the power of His Word in communities across Canada and beyond. We seek to honour God, value people, champion the Bible, advance ministry, and promote and practice stewardship in fulfilling our mission.
Using a multi media approach to ministry, we are absolutely committed to faithfully and creatively teaching the truth of God’s Word in such a way that engages those searching for God, while also empowering the spiritual growth and maturity of believers. Located in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Back to the Bible Canada broadcasts coast to coast, airing over 1,200 programs weekly. We are also committed to the extensive use of innovative online, email and mobile technology to reach as many listeners as possible in Canada and around the globe.
A generation ago, most Canadians had at least some knowledge of the Bible, but with the increase in the secularization of society over the past three decades, biblical illiteracy is rising. This is why the ministry of Back to the Bible Canada is more important than ever before.
DR. 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.
