Pastor Brenda Evril Langford Billingy is a retired pastor and her passion is serving and mentoring women called by God to do His work through ministry.
Billingy was born on the Island of Trinidad, West Indies – the youngest of eight children born to Gladys and Lenny Langford. She received a pre-professional degree from Caribbean Union College at 18 years of age and then migrated to the United States where she completed her B.A. degree in Phychology from Columbia Union College and a M.A. degree in Education from Howard University.
In 1995 Brenda was ordained as a local Elder and her life began to change dramatically. Serving in that capacity allowed her to discover the special gifts that God has graciously bestowed upon her – especially the gift of speech, counseling and encouragement. It was then that she made a promise to the Lord that when her children were enrolled in college she would devote all of her time and attention to God’s purpose for her life.
This decision led her to return to Columbia Union College in 1998 to complete a B.A. degree in Religion. Upon graduation she was hired as the Associate Pastor of the Metropolitan Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) Church in Hyattsville, Maryland. Brenda later served as the Senior Pastor of the Bladensburg SDA Church for 4 years before returning to Metropolitan SDA Church as the Senior Pastor. She retired from pastorship in September 2015 but spent the next 5 yrs, mentoring, training, and hiring women to serve as pastors in North America.
Ministry assignments include the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Trinidad, St. Croix, Jamaica, and Africa. Brenda has been married to her husband, Edsel for over 40 years. They are blessed with two wonderful daughters – Rhonda (son in law Marquis) and Shana, the joy and pride of their lives.
Her hobbies include reading, creative writing, tennis, swimming and skiing. Her goal is to perform Earthly ministry with a Heavenly mindset, and her desire is to be known as a “humble vessel willing to be used by God”.
