Avid jogger and bowling enthusiast are a few of the benefits James now pursues since retiring from the navy; a career that spanned almost three decades, and took him to five of the seven continents of the world.
When asked if there was one place that he considered the most exotic, he replied, “Enewetak Atoll. It was remote, almost isolated and formed a large coral atoll of 40 islands in the Pacific Ocean.” James is founder and senior pastor of the Pilgrim Outreach Ministries.
Although being in the navy took him all over the globe, James admits that without his wife Cecilia faithfully keeping the “home fires” burning, he would have quit a long time ago. “Just knowing that she ‘had my back’ in every conceivable instance made life that much better.”
The Langston’s have been married for more than 40 years and have six children and fifteen grandchildren.
