Langdon Palmer became our pastor in 2014. He started his professional life as an Electrical Engineer, and worked for a decade in process control in the Philadelphia area. He has a deep love for science, nature and philosophy. But faith came later. By the time he had reached college he was hovering somewhere between an agnostic and an atheist. In college, Christians shared the good news of the Gospel with him, and his world was turned upside down. He came to discover that “the story and beauty of this world was far greater than I could have ever imagined.” Langdon studied at Princeton Seminary for his Masters of Divinity, and at Drew University for his Doctorate of Ministry. His interests include music, art, power tools, wilderness travel, science fiction, working in his vineyard, and all things pertaining to C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and G.K. Chesterton. He has two teenage children and is married to his wife Ruth who is a professor of Counseling Psychology at Eastern University.
Langdon loves both traditional and contemporary worship and serves Leverington with a contagious enthusiasm which is fueled by the conviction that the Gospel is the best news a person could ever hear.
