Michael Loftis and I have been friends for years. I have walked the journey of ministry with him and have had opportunity to observe his approach to both life and leadership in action. Michael is a man of impeccable integrity. His unusual capacity for crafting and communicating an articulate vision compels people to follow his leadership and his global passion for the lost and broken is undisputed. He and his wife Jo Beth model a relationship that is in sync with the person and passions of Christ. I have great confidence in the significant contribution that they will continue to make to Christ and His kingdom.

 

 

 

 

 

Paul DixonDr. Paul Dixon, Chancellor, Cedarville University

It is a delight for me to recommend Michael Loftis as a faithful servant of our Lord. His legacy of ministry in missions is commendable. For many years he served overseas with the Association of Baptists for World Evangelism until he was called as President. He was certainly used of God mightily during all those 23 years, and for the past 10 years as President. Michael has a growing walk with the Lord and is committed to personal evangelism and the Great Commission. Michael and his wife Jo Beth are a ministry team. We have been privileged to have Michael as a trustee at Cedarville University for the past 8 years. There is no doubt in my mind that our God will continue to lead, bless, and use Michael and Jo Beth in the days ahead.

It is my privilege to recommend to you Dr. Michael Loftis and the ministry of DNA Global Network.

I have known Dr. Loftis personally from his first days serving as President of ABWE until the conclusion of his leadership in June 2011. He has been a man greatly used of God in the work of the gospel around the world. Not only did we work together when I served on the board of ABWE, but also worked closely together from 2004-2009 when I was employed by the mission as Director of Missionary Care. He and his wife Jo Beth have become personal friends of my wife and me as well.

Michael is a man of great vision and energy. He brings a wealth of cross-cultural missiological knowledge and experience, founded on a deeply rooted commitment to and thorough knowledge of God’s Word.

My wife and I have known Michael and Jo Beth Loftis for more than 40 years.  We have observed their leadership as college students, faculty members at Tennessee Temple University, as missionaries, and then as President of ABWE.  We have always been impressed with their ability to connect with people.  Whether those people were friends, strangers, foreign, young or old, Michael and Jo Beth connect with them immediately and minister to them. Michael is creative, progressive, and contemporary in his thinking.  I have watched him ask tough questions in his own ministry in order to be more strategic and to maximize effectiveness.  Both Jo Beth and Michael are gifted communicators of the Word of God and present it in a fresh way that meets the need of the occasion.

 

 

 

 

Hans FinzelDr. Hans Finzel, President of WorldVenture

Michael and Jo Beth Loftis have been dear friends and ministry colleagues for twenty years. We served in the same ministry field of Europe back before we were thrust into international mission leadership. They are choice servants of Jesus that have a lot to offer the world of missions and the challenge of training international leaders. I could not be more enthusiastic in recommending Michael for speaking, teaching, mentoring or consulting in the arena of missions and fulfilling the Great Commission in our generation.

I have been blessed to know Dr. Michael Loftis and his wife Jo Beth for several years now and have greatly benefited from their friendship and encouragement. Michael and Jo Beth are a couple that have a passion for people and are gifted at making meaningful connections. Having served in similar executive roles, I have appreciated Michael’s integrity and honesty. I have seen Michael conduct meetings, lead worship services that keep Christ centric, present his passion and vision very effectively. Michael is very articulate and you would benefit greatly by using Michael in conferences, leadership workshops and missions conferences. Michael comes with a lot of global experience all from the source of his relationship with the Lord.
