Brian Langley will be nominated as vice president of the N.C. Baptist Pastors’ Conference on Nov. 10 in Greensboro. C. J. Bordeaux Sr., pastor of Gorman Baptist Church in Durham and president of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina (BSC) announced Nov. 7 that he will make the nomination.
Langley is serving his third year as pastor of First Baptist Church in Kure Beach. He pastored in Statesville and served as the pastor of students and families for two years at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Knightdale.
“I've known Brian for six years. He is a true conservative Bible preacher and stands unashamedly upon the Word of God,” Bordeaux said. “We are wanting to infuse young men in leadership roles in our convention. I can think if no better way than to allow a young pastor like Brian to become a future leader by nominating him.”
Langley has two bachelor of arts degrees in psychology and criminal justice from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. He also graduated from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary in Lynchburg, Va., with a master of divinity degree. He served on the board of directors of the BSC from 2008-2011 and on the BSC nominating committee. He was the moderator of the Wilmington Baptist Association and presently serves on the association’s executive administrative team.
His wife, Alyssa, is a fifth grade teacher in the public schools.
Bordeaux said some younger generations of church leaders seem uninterested in cooperating with the state convention. “I’ve known Brian for six years, and I believe he sees the great value in working together in our historical cooperation.”
