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.

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 Saco Bay Community Church after our children were born and, through the ministry of SBCC 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 Saco Bay 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 came to SBCC for the first time in 1989 and was asked to join the staff in January 1995.  My primary responsibilities are in the areas of church administration and accounting.  It has been the privilege of a lifetime to serve under the leadership of the pastors here at SBCC and it is especially exciting now as the new generation of men has stepped into the pulpit.  It is always interesting to learn in ministry and to see how our message of the gospel and our mission has not changed but the way we fulfill it sometimes has to be different. I have served in many areas of ministry over the years but have been especially blessed to lead women’s small groups or Bible studies.  God is always challenging me to go deeper into His Word and I love to have other women join me in the journey.  After all, it is in the context of  community [the church] that we grow deeper into the richness of His gospel and all that it means.  It never gets old!READ MORE

I have been married to Ron for 35 years and we are blessed to have three beautiful daughters, all of whom are married.  We also have three amazing grandchildren and enjoy watching them grow and learn – especially when we visit, spoil them and then leave to go to the sanctuary of our home!  (Every grandparent knows exactly what I mean.)  In 2013 we welcomed a beautiful Wheaten Scottish Terrier [Bonny] into our home.  She often tags along with me to work and is such a faithful, loving companion to us.  Ron and I enjoy doing ministry work together and traveling the State of Maine—we especially love Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park.  You will spot us at the Jordan Pond House and Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound every July.

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 SBCC 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 45-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, Sanford and now Waterboro.

I am forever grateful to the Lord for the way He led me to understand and accept the grace and forgiveness found in the gospel of Jesus Christ. It was through the ministry of Saco Bay Community 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 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!

Though I lived in multiple states as a child and am technically “from away”, I have spent the majority of my life here in Maine.  I attended high school at Bangor Christian Schools and studied accounting at Husson University. My husband, John, and I met shortly after college while working as auditors at the same firm.  After we married, I moved to Biddeford, where he was born and raised. I have been here nearly 25 years and feel blessed to call it home.

When I was in elementary school my mother helped run an after school Good News Club through our church.  It was there that I came to understand that Jesus loves me and that He paid the penalty for my sins, sins that had separated me from God.  At the age of 8, I put my trust in Him and asked for His forgiveness. In my late teens and 20s, I followed my own path, turning my back on God and my faith. READ MORE

While attending a playgroup with my young children, the wife of a local pastor spoke truth into my life and gently prodded me to find a local church where I could surround myself with believers.  I took her advice and found Saco Bay Community Church where I was led to repentance and turned back to God. After becoming a member, I looked for ways to serve and soon took on the role of Nursery Director.  I have been in that role more than once in the last 15 or so years and have truly enjoyed the time that I am able to spend with our youngest attenders. What a blessing it is to watch them learn to walk, talk, and come to know that the God of the universe loves them!

My husband and I are finding ourselves in a new stage of life as our daughter recently began her first year of college as a vocal performance major.  We also have a son in high school and we love going to his various sporting events to cheer on him and his teammates. I stay involved at the high school through various boards and committees and hope to continue to do so even after both of our children are on their own.  When the kids are not home we stay busy with our two crazy cats, Loki and Lupa. John and I are big sports fans and we love spending time in the stands with our community cheering on our Biddeford Tigers, and also watching our favorite Boston sports teams from home.
