He literally traveled coast to coast in the States and also led trips to Rwanda, Wales, Uganda, Mexico, Germany, Chile and the Bahamas.

He continues to travel today speaking at Student Life events and other conferences. While Landon does not claim to have everything figured out about life, God or why women love shoes so much, he knows that two keys for any pastor are to love his people and feed them God\’s Word.

He is married to Tara and father to Arabella, Adalaide, Adoniram and Alastair. Leading and shepherding his family is a great priority to Landon, as is making disciples through preaching, mentoring, biblical counseling and through living life together in the power of the Gospel.
