Langston Baptist Hires Senior Pastor

Joshua Sorrows Announcement

CONWAY, South Carolina - Langston Baptist Church in Conway, South Carolina has expanded its leadership team by appointing Joshua Sorrows as their new Senior Pastor. Langston Baptist began over 68 years ago on a piece of land that was generously donated to them. Since then, they have followed God’s vision for the future of their church and expanded into a much larger sanctuary that allows them to further serve their community. Langston Baptist Church is a family of believers created to worship and called to serve.

“There are very few churches that do things well without a pastor, so the urgency and speed with which you conduct this search is worth the investment.” - Richard Causey, Search Committee Member

Joshua has a passion to use experience and gifts as a lead pastor. He brings a strong desire to fulfill the mission and vision that God has called him to pursue at Langston Baptist. Jeremiah, along with his wife, Sara, three kids, and their goldendoodle look forward to joining Langston Baptist in South Carolina.
