Anthony Langston is the founding and lead pastor of Tapestry Church. He was raised in Yukon, Canada and left home at age 17 to pursue his calling to reach people for Christ. Pastor Anthony is a gifted communicator and has traveled extensively across the United States and around the world ministering and preaching the Word to thousands. His ministry has touched many lives in the Jersey City area, a community he has been a part of for many years. Pastor and his wife Tanya have been together for over 17 years.
Raised in Indiana, Tanya Langston graduated with a B.S. in elementary education and previously taught kindergarten for 8 years in Jersey City. Together, they have two children, Brooklynn and Shiloh. Both Pastor Anthony and Tanya have a rich family heritage in ministry, with three generations of pastors and preachers on both sides. Together they have a passion to build a community of Christ-followers that are life-giving, spirit-led and multicultural. It is this spirit that has contributed to Tapestry’s continual growth and focus on leading people toward a more intimate relationship with God and building strong relationships.
Additionally, Tapestry Church is lead by a wise group of individuals that make up our Staff Pastor Team. Staff Pastors at Tapestry are responsible for assisting the Lead Pastor with: determining overall vision and future direction of the church; creating policies to define church values and biblical operating procedures; ensuring the church’s teachings and practices reflect accurate biblical theology; providing avenues for pastoral care, conflict resolution, discipline and restoration; providing accountability to the Lead Pastor to ensure the vision and values are being carried out.
