Landon has been a Lead Pastor for over 19 years and has led student camps for many national student organizations for the past 28 years. He currently serves as an adjunct professor for Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary working in the Doctor of Ministry program in the field of preaching. He has published two commentaries in the Christ-Centered Commentary Exposition Series which are Exalting Jesus in Ezekiel and Exalting Jesus in Esther. His next volume, Exalting Jesus in Deuteronomy, will be published next year.

His prayer is that in making the Word of God fully known that the Spirit will make the people of God fully mature. Landon has held numerous denominational roles at both the associational and state levels, as well as, serving on 14 international mission trips.

Worship Leader

The Exchange Worship

We are Exchange Worship, a worship team based out of Mid-Way Baptist Church in Raleigh, NC. We lead worship our Youth + Young Adult services every week, and love any opportunity to jump in and serve students! Our name is based out of Isaiah 61:3 which ends by saying, “that He may be glorified”. This truly is the heartbeat of our worship; that God may receive all glory, honor, and praise through our lives on and off stage.

We have all been impacted by Student Life Camps in some way, and look forward to pouring back into students the way we have been!
