State missionary Keith Loomis dies after long battle with cancer

MONTGOMERY — State missionary Keith Loomis died this evening (Nov. 12) after a long battle with cancer. He had served as an associate in the office of collegiate and student ministries since 2002 working with middle and high school ministries.

Keith’s state missionary colleague, Rick Lance (executive director), has issued this statement: “In the words of the apostle Paul, Keith Loomis has ‘fought the good fight, finished the course, kept the faith.’ Throughout his struggle and health challenges, Keith was a consistent Christian witness who never lost the joy of the Lord. He indeed was a faithful husband, father, state missionary and child of God. To say that he will be missed is an understatement. To say that he is now with His Lord is a true statement. I ask all Alabama Baptists to keep the Loomis family in your prayers during the weeks and months to come.”
