Assistant Professor of Christian Studies
Holder of the William Peterson Carter, Jr. Professorship in Biblical Studies
Dr. Langford has been teaching New Testament and Greek at Louisiana College since 2013. As an alum of the school, it gives him great joy to be using his God-given gift of teaching at his alma mater. Dr. Langford’s ultimate desire is for students to encounter and experience the grace of God in Jesus Christ. Areas of academic interest include the General Epistles (especially 1 Peter), the Gospel of John, Koine Greek, and hermeneutics. He is an active member of both the Evangelical Theological Society and the Society of Biblical Literature. In addition, he is the faculty sponsor for the Christian Vocational Fellowship and leads an annual trip to the Defend the Faith conference in New Orleans, LA.
Dr. Langford is married to Melinda, who is also an alum of LC, and they have three young children: Noah, London, and Reilly. His family worships each week at First Baptist Church Pineville, where he co-teaches the College Sunday school class and his wife teaches youth Sunday school. Dr. Langford also plays guitar in the orchestra and supply preaches for the pastor when needed. When he’s not teaching or hanging with his family, he enjoys a good cup of coffee, playing disc golf with students, listening to and playing music, being outdoors, and watching football (his teams are the LSU Tigers and New Orleans Saints).
