Background:  Dr. Joey Lang has served as Grace’s pastor for seven years.  He has earned degrees from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (Kansas City, MO) and Liberty University (Lynchburg, VA) as well as over twenty years of combined ministry experience including pastorates, collegiate ministry, and youth work.

Family:  Joey has been married to Melissa for 20 years and has two children.

Hobbies:  Laughing, reading, video games, golfing, watching movies, and hanging out with family and friends.

Favorite Food:  “Coffee and Barbecue, though not necessarily at the same time.  Ice cream fits somewhere in the middle – closer to the top of the middle.  And Italian or Chinese.  I like food.”

Favorite Bible Verse:  I don’t really have a favorite.  There are a lot of verses that speak to my heart at different times.  The Bible is a living book that keeps on speaking.  The big thing is context.  The difference between makeup and warpaint is context.  You have to keep the Scripture in its context to really understand it.  Context is everything.

Which Super Hero Would You Compare Your Christian Life to?  Superman.  I can soar the heights of heaven, but something as ridiculous as a shiny green rock can mess it all up.  We all fall.  It’s just a reminder that we all need a Savior.
