Getting to Know the Bridgehaven Staff

Article by: Bridgehaven Team

Dr. Neale Davis, Executive Director/Durham Office

Dr. Davis enjoys and appreciates the trust people express when sharing their stories. He has been counseling formally since the Bridgehaven office opened, but has been involved in counseling most of his life. He graduated from the University of Georgia in 1982 before working in Atlanta until his wife also graduated from UGA. They both served with Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) after getting married. Dr. Davis served with Cru for 28 years before opening up the Bridgehaven Durham office in 2012.

He holds a masters and a doctor of ministry degree from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary where he studied counseling from a biblical perspective with a balanced application between sin and suffering. He thoroughly enjoys helping people think through a healthy grid as they navigate the struggles of life. His greatest desire is to help those he counsels to understand the relevance of the gospel to their particular struggles.

Dr. Davis specializes in relational areas that include marriage, pre marriage, conflict resolution, parenting, and same sex attraction, as well as emotional issues that include anxiety, men’s issues, and depression. He also has a special love and concern for pastors in their very important shepherding role. In fact, he leads pastors’ mentor group at least once a year.

His wife Bonnie still works with Cru and they have three adult children. The Davises were married in 1984.
