LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An Elizabethtown pastor is now the new president of the Kentucky Baptist Convention.

Bill Langley was chosen Tuesday at the state convention's annual meeting. He is the senior pastor of Severns Valley Baptist Church.

Nobody challenged Langley for the unpaid, volunteer position. 

He says he'll help educate pastors about what can be done to strengthen Bible-based teachings.
