Max Langi has served the church for over 45 years since he started working in 1972 at the age of 20. He began working for the denomination as an accountant, and also as a teacher in Irian Jaya Academy (now Papua Adventist Academy). Max graduated from a 2-year business course major in Accountancy in Mount Klabat College, Manado, Indonesia (now Unibersitas Klabat).
His denominational years of service can be categorized into four periods of services starting in East Indonesia Union Conference where he served for fourteen years. From 1972 to 1987, Max served as an accountant, teacher, and secretary-treasurer of various missions. His dedication towards that Lord’s work led him to become the treasurer of Universitas Klabat (UNKLAB).
From 1987 to 2001, Max worked as an assistant and associate treasurer of the Far Eastern Division (FED) in Singapore. When the division was reorganized into two divisions in 1997, he continued his service in the Southern Asia-Pacific Division when it was relocated in the Philippines.
As Max’s sphere of influence continued to grow, he was then called to serve in various entities: as a union treasurer in Ethiopia, finance director for ADRA Guinea, vice president of finance for AIIAS, under treasurer of West-Central Africa Division, and eventually landing back to the Southern Asia-Pacific Division as the under treasurer.
In 2015, Max was elected as the new and current treasurer of the Southern Asia-Pacific Division.
Max Langi earned his Doctor of Philosophy in Development Administration from the Philippine Christian University (2010), MBA from Victoria University, Australia (1997), and S1 (BA) in Accountancy from School of Economics, Universitas Klabat (1984).
