Pastor Anthony became Senior Pastor of ENBC in 2018. He was born in Pascagoula, MS and graduated from Moss Point High. His family history includes a rich family heritage of Southern Baptist pastors, including his grandfather. While he was raised in a Christian home and had been deeply exposed to the truths of Christianity during his life, he was not saved until he was 20 years old while at a Bible study with some friends. Since that time, Pastor Anthony has served the Lord faithfully in church staff roles over the last 26 years including as youth minister, worship leader, education minister, and senior pastor. He has also received three theological degrees from our Southern Baptist Seminaries. He has a BA in Christian Education from Leavell College at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, a Master of Divinity in pastoral studies from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and a Doctor of Ministry in expository preaching, also from Southern.
Pastor Anthony has been married to Mysty for over 25 years, and they have five children. Their three boys Zack, Cameron, and Chase are all married, and he has two grandchildren, Evan and Hunter. His two daughters, Olivia (11) and Zoey (8), are still living at home and keep the Langley’s very busy.
Pastor Anthony loves Jesus and loves to preach His Word. The Bible teaches that the chief role of the pastor is to equip the saints of God to be conformed to the image of Christ and fulfill the Great Commission. Pastor Anthony believes this is best done through expository preaching which enables him to preach the whole counsel of God’s Word. The pastor must also teach God’s people to love one another and share the gospel through leading by example as he provides pastoral oversight and care for the flock. His primary goal is to lead the church to glorify God in all that they do!
