Rod Nealeigh, Board Member

Rod spent 25 years as a missionary in Curitiba, Brazil where he and his wife, Linda, raised three kids and shared Christ’s love in the trenches of life every day. His roll-up-your-sleeves experience of sharing Christ while in the throws of life’s struggles gives him the unique experience and perspective to help other ministries make their light shine so others see it and God is glorified. He currently works with Reino Capital, an organization that assists small ministries with branding and professional communications development to boost awareness, support and involvement in numerous works for the Kingdom.
