Langdon Palmer

Langdon Palmer

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 always had 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 deep beauty of this world were far greater than anything 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 wilderness travel, power tools, music, art, working in his vineyard, science fiction, 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.
