Elders (Pastors)

Greg

Lead Pastor/Elder

Pastor Greg and his wife Chenille are natives of Springfield. They met each other at Parkview High School, started dating soon after, and in 2004 they were married. Through all of this, Greg was also growing and learning what it was to pursue the calling he felt. In 2005, Greg started seminary. And eventually, after seminary, residences, and trainings Greg founded Redeemer Church in 2012. He serves in the Lead Pastor role which oversees the vision, mission, preaching, and leadership of the church. He’s also father to four children: Ethan, Gabriela, Malachi, and Olivia.

Pastor Greg and his family love calling Springfield home, and find it a great honor to be a part of such a wonderful church that desires both the city and the nations to know the saving grace of Jesus.

Sean

Care Pastor/Elder

Sean became an elder at Redeemer in 2018, and he later added the title of Care Pastor in 2021. Though even before the title, Sean and his wife Lindsey have always worked to care for the body through biblical counseling, leading Redemption Groups, and encouraging soul care in general among the body. He has a passion for helping people understanding the redemptive work of the Father and how that’s worked out in their own lives.

When he’s not working at the church or doing jobs for his window cleaning business, Sean enjoys hunting, being outdoors, and spending time with his family.

Tony

Discipleship Pastor/Elder

Tony and his wife Valerie joined Redeemer in 2015. They both shared a desire for seeing people grow in their understanding and knowledge of scripture, and a few years later they became involved in leading the men’s and women’s bible studies. Then, in 2021, Tony stepped into the role of Discipleship Pastor and was installed as an elder. And while vocational ministry is quite a career change from running a software company, Tony knows the Lord will continue using his experience for the glory of the Kingdom. Tony loves the people of Redeemer and ultimately seeks to help them pursue the word, have discipline in prayer, and live in community.

His wife and children are true treasures. He loves seeing the smiles on the faces of his children (Lucy, Calla, Seeley, and Rose), and hearing his wife laugh.

Jory

Pastor/Elder

Jory has been an elder at Redeemer since 2015. He grew up in Southwest Missouri and was saved at young age. As he matured in Christ, his desire to help others out of the chains of sin grew. Jory felt the call to pastor his last summer of college. After getting married to his sweetheart Amanda and attending seminary, Jory spent time with Sojourn Community Church in Kentucky before moving back to Missouri and eventually helping to plant Redeemer Church.

When not busy with other things, Jory loves wide-open spaces, hunting, fishing and camping

Abigail

Director of Kid's Ministry

Abigail Langford has been Director of Kid's Ministry at Redeemer since December 2020. Her passion for kid's ministry started at the church she grew up in, where she was able to start up a Sunday class for kids ages 0-6. Seeing the Word of God grow and work in the youngest members inspired her to join and serve in the nursery at Boulevard Baptist Church until she joined Redeemer after marrying her husband, Drew Langford, in December of 2018. 

When she is not working at the church, she enjoys being a wife, a stay-at-home Mom to their two-year-old, baking, and taking walks with her family and two dogs Strider and Nora.
