Harold "Hal" Langevin
Hal was born in Bridgeport, CT, but grew up in South Florida. Due to his poor health condition as a teenager, he relied on Jesus as his guardian and the Bible as the words from God talking to him as gentle comforter, moral guide, and author of the disciplines required to become the man Jesus wanted him to be. Hal was involved in the Holy Spirit Conference on St. Simons Island, which introduced him to the Coastal Walk to Emmaus in 1998. The walk, in turn, introduced him to Kairos Prison Ministry, where Jesus is introduced to incarcerated residents. Hal has now been involved in Kairos for over 20 years and it was through Kairos that Hal learned about Newpoint. He says “My journey has just begun with Jesus”. Hal is married to Lisa, his wife of over 25 years. They have 4 grandchildren.
Charles is a native of Brunswick. His father was a Baptist preacher. Charles was led to Christ at an early age, but after the passing of his father when he was 12, his curiosity led to a life of drugs and alcohol. At the age of 35, in desperation, having reached the lowest point in his life, he received Christ Jesus into his life. After being delivered from drugs and alcohol he has been pressing to live a Christian life to the best of his ability. He spends his life trying to encourage others who are caught up in addiction to come to Christ, as God leads him.
Thomas "Lee" Price
Lee grew up in Spokane, Washington and in his teenage years became an atheist and a chronic alcoholic. His alcohol addiction led to a tragic car crash in 1993 that took multiple innocent lives. Lee was sentenced to prison as a result and immediately after, he had a personal encounter with Jesus Christ that changed his life forever. During his incarceration he was called into ministry and served Jesus as a Bible teacher, Christian author, a poet, and was deeply involved with Kairos Prison Ministry. He met his beautiful wife Laurie, with a divine confirmation, and they actually married inside Washington State Prison in 2006. Since his release from prison in 2010 both Lee and Laurie have been serving the Lord with Kairos and other ministries. Laurie also has written her own inspirational poetry book combined with her amazing acrylic paintings. Lee is currently employed as Accounting Manager with Visiting Angels in Brunswick, Georgia. Together, they enjoy 4 children and 10 grandchildren.
Rich is a native of New Jersey, where he and his wife, Barb, raised and homeschooled their 4 children. God moved them through several churches during those 20 years, each time growing and pruning them. With a desire to be in Christian ministry, Rich retired a few years early from his commercial airline job and they moved to Brunswick in 2016. In looking for ministry opportunities here, Rich joined The Gideons International. Through this organization he weekly ministered to and discipled men in Ware State Prison tier cells for more than 2 years. It is due to several experiences he has had with men there that God placed Newpoint Partnership on his heart. Rich and Barb are members of Community Church in Brunswick and peer counselors at Skylark in Brunswick.

Billie was born and raised in northern Kentucky. Though she had experience in the world of Human Resources and nonprofits, she did not have a great deal of experience living a life that was godly. Bad decisions/addiction led to her incarceration in 2019. What seemed initially like a fatal blow with her lengthy sentence actually turned out to be the biggest blessing of her life. There she found sobriety, reconnection with her family and, most importantly, a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Billie completed many Bible studies and peer counseling classes, eventually receiving her certification once released. She has now committed her life to the Lord and helping other people on their journey in sobriety. Billie formerly was the resident Director at Isaiah House in Lexington Kentucky, a transitional housing program for women. The hand of God intervened in her life and her family leading her to Brunswick and our ministry. She is excited to come aboard at Newpoint Partnership and help spread the love of Jesus to the Christian Brothers living here.
