CarterBaldwin Recruits President for Langham Partnership USA

June 3, 2024 – CarterBaldwin Executive Search has recently assisted in the recruitment of Carl Moeller as new president of Langham Partnership USA. “Carl Moeller will be a marvelous addition to Langham Partnership,” Joel Carpenter, LPUSA board chair, said. “He will bring an extraordinary range of experience in international Christian work and a servant’s heart to this role. We are grateful for his eagerness to join our team.”

The ministry notes that Dr. Moeller has both a heart for and experience serving the global church that honors founder John Stott’s vision to raise the standard of biblical preaching around the world. He comes to Langham with decades of ministry experience and will succeed president Ben Homan, who will retire in December 2024 after more than 14 years of leading Langham.

Dr. Moeller’s involvement with the global church began in the 1980’s when he served in communist Eastern Europe. Later, he earned a master of divinity from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and a PhD from the University of Utah.

In 2003, Dr. Moeller was appointed president and CEO of Open Doors, a non-profit that engages with the persecuted church around the world. Across nine years, he helped grow the organization and raise its profile. Since then, Dr. Moeller has served as the CEO of Biblica as well as other non-profits and has pastored as an ordained minister of the Evangelical Free Church of America. For the past four years, he has led The Joshua Fund, which supports ministries in Israel and the Middle East.

“I am thrilled to embark on this journey,” Dr. Moeller said. “I look forward to witnessing the extraordinary ways in which God will work through us in the days ahead. I am honored to follow the outstanding leadership of Ben Homan and the legacy of John Stott. Together with the global team, we will embrace the future by God’s grace.”

The Search Process

After Mr. Homan privately informed the Langham board of his retirement plans more than a year ago, a committee of current and former Langham board members (and three current staff members) began the presidential search process, assisted by CarterBaldwin Executive Search.

“Our committee sought a heart for the global church as well as experience leading a team and being a collaborative member of an international partnership,” said John Rain, chair of the search committee. “Carl meets all of these criteria.”

“I am thrilled that Dr. Carl Moeller will build on Langham’s growth under Ben Homan’s leadership,” said Rev. Dr. Riad Kassis, international director for Langham Partnership. “We are excited about this appointment and confident that Dr. Moeller will help lead us into the next chapter of our journey for God’s glory.”
