Leadership

Logan Saunders

I was born and raised in Fredericksburg, Virginia as the oldest of seven children (yes, I know that’s a lot!). I grew up in a nominally-religious home, going to church because that’s what “good” people do. I was a rule follower and strove to be a good kid and have a good reputation. In high school, I started attending a new church in the area and through the preaching of the Word, my eyes were opened to my sin, God’s judgement, and my need for Jesus Christ to atone for my sin. I repented of my sin and put my faith in Jesus Christ. It was soon after that I began to feel a calling to the pastoral ministry, with a strong desire to preach and teach God’s Word.

I went on to major in Religion in college, graduating from James Madison University in 2015 and receive my Master of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2017. From September 2018-May 2019, I received further training through The NETS Center For Church Planting and Revitalization in Williston, VT. By God’s grace, I had many Godly mentors throughout these years who continued to teach me about ministry and model the responsibility to shepherd the flock of God faithfully.

I am married to Lindsay, whom I met in college, and we have two beautiful sons, Luke and Jake. Some of my hobbies include reading, politics, and good coffee (yes, I am a coffee snob). I also enjoy meeting with others and discussing the Bible, theology, and how these things apply to life. Please do not be hesitant to reach out to me to schedule time together!

I am proud to be a lifelong resident of Biddeford and live there with Michele, my wife of 22 years. I  graduated from Biddeford High School and Bentley College and have spent my professional career in the finance field for a number of companies in Southern Maine and New Hampshire.  I currently work for Vapotherm, a rapidly growing medical technology company located in Exeter, NH.

I began attending Bible Baptist Church after our children were born and, through the ministry of Bible Baptist Church and Pastor Ken Kirby and his wife, Sue, came to know the Lord in 2004.  Since then, I have served in a variety of ministries at Bible Baptist Church including the Admin Team, Financial Secretary, Sunday School teacher, and usher. I began serving as an Elder in 2015.

My wife and I have two teenage children and two energetic cats, Loki and Lupa. Our daughter is in college and studying musical performance while our son is in high school.  Michele and I are Boston sports fans and especially BIG New England Patriots fans. If the Patriots are playing a game, you can pretty much rest assured we are cheering them on!  In addition to spending time with my family, I enjoy golf and spending as much time as I can outside – especially during the summer months.

I have happily been a resident of Saco for most of my life.  I attended Saco schools and graduated from Thornton Academy and then SMVTI (now SMCC).  My wife, Shirley (also a Saco native) and I raised our children here and are so blessed to have them and their families still living in this area.  I have long been part of the team at Franklin Fueling in Saco (over 36 years now!).  I am an applications engineer and assist our customers with difficult application issues as well as being involved with the development of new products and accessories.

I came to know Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior shortly before Easter of 1978, as a result of a customer from work witnessing to me and giving me a Bible. Another work contact also witnessed to me during that same period of time. Christian radio was also influential in my early discipleship.  Shirley and I came to BBC in 1981 and we  have been involved in many capacities over the years.  I have served as an usher, greeter, choir director, deacon, trustee, elder and worship leader.

We are blessed to have two adult children, Melanie and Jeremy, and three grandchildren, Caden, Quinn and Greyson.  I enjoy many hobbies but my favorites are mountain biking, road biking, hiking, snow shoeing, and playing music of all kinds, from bluegrass to jazz.   I would have to say my greatest joy is leading a congregation of people in praise and worship to God.

I am honored to be a Maine native – born and raised in Bangor. I was educated in the Bangor public school system and Husson University. My wife, Cheryl, and I moved to Southern Maine in 1986 to continue my now 44-year career with Hannaford Bros. Co. (Does anybody stay with the same company that long anymore?) I have spent most of those years in retail management and have served customers in many of the Greater Portland communities as well as Biddeford, Saco, Kennebunk and Sanford.

I am forever grateful to the Lord for the way He lovingly led me to understand and accept the grace and forgiveness found in the gospel of Jesus Christ. It was through the ministry of Bible Baptist Church and a dear friend at work that God worked most profoundly. That day when Jesus saved me was in October 1992 and nothing has been the same since!

I have had the honor to serve in various roles in His church, including trustee, deacon, Sunday School teacher, small group leader, and elder over the past 20+ years. I have many times been reminded by scripture that I cannot do any of it in my own strength…Jesus lovingly tells us, ““I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5) I believe that God has grown and shaped my ministry over the years – not to stack up accomplishments or to add anything to my resume, but to serve God by loving and serving His people.

Cheryl and I have 3 beautiful daughters, all married to great guys and we have been richly blessed with 3 grandchildren. So that we continue to hear the patter of little feet in our home (even when the grandchildren are not there), we adopted a Wheaten Scottish Terrier named Bonny. She lovingly rules us! My chief hobby is my family, but I also spend some of my time cultivating my love of baseball and the Red Sox – whether they play well or they break my heart!
