  • Pastor Doug LangfordLead Pastor

    Pastor Doug was raised in Illinois and Connecticut, in a home that really didn’t believe in God. In spite of that, he came to know Christ personally at the age of 17.

He sensed God’s call to preaching and pastoral work while at Greenville. After college, he attended Asbury Theological Seminary, where he met his wife Sharon who was attending Asbury College across the street. They have 2 great children, Nicole and Dylan, and have been pastoring in the Free Methodist Church since 1990. They made Rochester their home in 2011.
