Donald McNeeley (DBS, Triune Biblical University) comes to Tidewater Bible College with over 27 years in biblical archaeology, education, spiritual formation, business management, and project management experiences. In September 2004, he began the Church and Biblical Research Group with an emphasis on reaching, keeping, and teaching men and women for Christ through studies in biblical archaeology, spiritual formation and worship. Dr. McNeeley has used his understandings from these three areas to create innovative retreats for the church and other ministries. He has authored a Bible Handbook, a multitude of articles and presentations on the integration of scripture with archaeological remains, and several book reviews, in addition to a periodic biblical archaeology conference entitled Faith and Archaeology. A recent presentation was Essene Ethics Revealed at Qumran which analyzed the ethics revealed in their Rule of the Community. His current research interests are with the development of concepts that integrate spiritual formation into a holistic worship environment and the biblical understanding we can obtain from the study of biblical archaeology.
