Pastor Paul Lang

"How can a young man keep his way pure ? By guarding it according to Your word." 
- Pslam 119:9 (ESV)

When I was a young man, through the ministry of other spiritual men and women, the Lord impressed upon me how precious and essential His Word is to my life every day. In those days, I never dreamed that I would one day serve Him as a pastor, but after nearly 30 years in a business career, He led me into the ministry.

Along the way, the Lord has given me the most precious of my life's blessings, my lovely wife, Betti. She is my partner for life and in the ministry of the gospel. God has given us three children and seven grand children.

I received my Master of Divinity degree from Lutheran Brethren Seminary, and in 2004 Emmaus Road Church called me to serve as pastor.  Together with the congregation we have worked side by side in the ministry of God's Word sharing in the gifts of grace God is giving among us, ministering to one another and serving our community.  Prior to Emmaus Road, I served as pastor for Bunker Hill Lutheran Church, Princeton, NJ.

Today, I am not such a young man anymore, but I continue to pray that His Word will be the defining factor in my life and everything we do at Emmaus Road.

I would really like to hear from you, if you have any questions.
