In Our CLC Classrooms–Meet Neil Bernthal

Neil Bernthal received his teaching degree from Immanuel Lutheran College, Eau Claire, in May 2001, and was assigned by the Call Committee on Graduates to serve in the Christian Day School in Winter Haven, Florida.

Neil states that He “either wanted to be a pastor or a teacher,” but was gradually led to desire sharing God’s Word with the young on a daily basis.

Along with science, Neil enjoys teaching Bible History most of all. “Seeing students get excited about a Bible story is very rewarding.” In his spare time he enjoys painting and yardwork. He is the son of Pastor Mark Bernthal and his wife Ruth of Saginaw, Michigan.

Neil recently became engaged to Teresa Nelson, who currently teaches at Luther Memorial School in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. A summer wedding is planned.

May the Lord richly bless this couple in their kingdom work.
