Few men have the honor of pastoring the church in which they grew up. Bill Langley enjoys that privilege. At eight-years-old Bill trusted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior as a result of the ministries of Severns Valley Baptist Church in Elizabethtown, KY. Now, as the senior pastor of Severns Valley, Bill is encouraging others to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior too.
Bill received his Bachelor of Arts in Education from the University of Kentucky.
He holds a Master of Divinity degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, TX.
He received a PhD in Biblical Studies from Louisiana Baptist University. His dissertation was entitled: A Focused Biblical Study of Spiritual Warfare and Its Implications for the Local Church.
During his first semester of seminary in Ft. Worth, TX, Bill met and fell in love with a beautiful Baylor Bear named Sheri Riley. Bill and Sheri were married in the spring of 1982, and have been loving life and doing ministry together since then. They are the proud parents of two children, and have the joy of recently becoming grandparents!
Bill has served as the senior pastor of four churches.
First Baptist Church of Meridian OK.
First Baptist Church of Mustang, OK.
Harvest Baptist Church, Ft. Worth.
Severns Valley Baptist Church, Elizabethtown, KY.
