Before the executive board of the Evangeline Baptist Association met on April 18, interim Director of Missions Bert Langley, who is retiring, and former DOM Wallace Primeaux shared a moment with incoming DOM David Carlton. Carlton, a former International Mission Board Missionary who served in various capacities for IMB and was a part of the IMB voluntary retirement initiative program, was the unanimous selection of the executive committee of the EBA on Feb. 22 to become the association’s next DOM. His first official day on the job was April 18 — the day of the board meeting. Langley (left), Carlton (center) and Primeaux (right) have a combined 140 years in ministry – Primeaux, 69 years, Langley, 46 years, and Carlton 25 years. Primeaux is presently the pastor of Esther Baptist Church.
