American Baptist News Service (Valley Forge, Pa. 1/31/03)--The Rev. Dr.
George Langhorne, American Baptist National Ministries' director of
Chaplaincy and Pastoral Counseling Services, was installed as
president-elect of the National Conference on Ministry to the Armed Forces
(NCMAF) in December.

A non-governmental ecumenical organization, NCMAF is made up of
representatives from more than 250 religious denominations and faith groups
who coordinate recruitment and endorsement of their bodies' military
chaplains. These representatives serve as the point of contact between
military clergy and their endorsing denomination or faith group and provide
oversight and support of military chaplains' work.

Langhorne will assume the organization's presidency in December 2003 and
become past president in December 2004. He will be a member of NCMAF's
executive committee from 2002 through 2005, when he completes his term as
past president.

After serving 25 years as a Navy chaplain Langhorne joined National
Ministries in 1999 as director of Missionary and Staff Services and was
named director of Chaplaincy and Pastoral Counseling Services in 2000.	He
was commissioned as an American Baptist home missionary in June 2000.
