Jeff Langley

Senior Pastor

Pastor Jeff began his ministry at FBG in 2016.  He and his wife Shelly have been married for 25 years, and have Ally and Jack in college.  Jeff always has his door open for visitors, and loves to spend time with the people of FBG.  Jeff got an M.DIV at Southwestern Baptist Seminary, and his D.MIN at Gateway Baptist Seminary.  He usually teaches through books of the Bible, and believes he is here to share what God has to tell us about living a joyful and committed life to Jesus.  When not at church, you will probably find him on a country road riding his bicycle talking about Jesus with the people he meets along the way.
