CHESTERFIELD — Bob Loggins, former Missouri Baptist Convention (MBC) prayer and spiritual awakening specialist, is embarking on a new spiritual journey that encompasses several ministry disciplines.
Loggins, founder and president of RF Loggins Sr., Ministries, LLC, served from June 2008 through the end of May 2012 on the MBC staff. He said his prayer and spiritual awakening emphasis is now being “seasoned with discipleship, evangelism and renewal.”
He is known throughout Missouri as a Bible expositor, conference speaker, author and lecturer. He also holds tent revivals, conducts national workshops for the North American Mission Board (NAMB), is in tune with the needs of several directors of missions, and is coaching up to a dozen pastors on prayer.
“It’s all one effort, and that is to make Christ known,” Loggins said. “That’s the whole goal. We’re all working for one God, one Savior, one Lord, as it says in Ephesians—one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God, one Father above all in all, who does His work in all of us. So it is one job.”
The nature of Loggins’ ministry leads him into areas like church planting, racial reconciliation, and pastoral ministry, all under the banner of “serving God and helping people.” Furthering the kingdom of God is his heartbeat.
“God has allowed me to have the privilege to know the heart of my convention, and then at the same time be able to reach beyond my convention to help other conventions,” he said.
“I’m learning that in order for the fruit on the tree to be healthy, the roots must go deep enough to tap into that lower level of prayer. We need revival in all of our churches. We need renewal in the hearts of our people.”
One of his closer friends in the ministry, Pastor Fred Luter of Franklin Avenue Baptist Church in New Orleans, was recently elected president of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). Loggins said that Luter’s presidency is going to serve as a reminder that doors of opportunity have already been opened.
“I think that Fred is going to bring an awareness that this is happening, and in reality it is already happening,” Loggins said. The work is already being done. There are some great relationships that God is bringing about in multi-ethnic experience.”
