Dr. Neighbour was called by the Lord at a young age to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. He received his education at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, and immediately thereafter headed to service in the Southern Baptist Mission to Brazil, preaching in Rio de Janeiro and along the Amazon River among natives who had never before heard the gospel. After returning to the US, he continued his evangelical work and established and pastored congregations in Maryland, Georgia, North Caroline, Ohio and Illinois.
In his later years he returned to evangelizing abroad, in Wales, the Holy Land, Egypt, India and Hungary.
Dr. Neighbour also had a prolific writing ministry. He published over fifty books and pamphlets, as well as poems, hymns, and his classic 14 volume set “Wells of Living Water”.
