Paul Langston is the Missions Mobilization Consultant with North Carolina Baptists on Mission, as well as serving as our interim pastor. Prior to his current positions, Paul served as Director of Missions of the Eastern Baptist Association, pastor of three churches in the Carolinas and as a missionary with the International Mission Board in Sardinia, Italy.

Paul has led mission teams to New Mexico, Montana, Idaho, New York, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, Honduras, El Salvador, Haiti and the Dominican Republic. He has also been very involved in Disaster Relief serving as Team Leader and Assessor.
Paul’s passion is to help churches and associations involve every member in using their God-given gifts in missions. He loves seeing the joy that comes when a person surrenders their gifts, talents and time to God. Some of his greatest joys are seeing the renewal and revitalization that comes in an individual’s life and in the life of a church when people use their gifts to make an eternal impact through missions involvement. He believes that even the simplest gift when placed in the Master’s hands can produce exponential results, and that missions involvement is critical to the life of a church.Mission trips have been an exciting and vital part of church life everywhere Paul has served. He has a particular interest in a church planting and elementary school development ministry in Haiti and supports it by making and selling handmade ink pens on a wood lathe.
Paul's hometown is Dillon, South Carolina. He and his wife, Pamela, have a son and daughter. He enjoys reading, consulting with churches facing transition, and college football.
