Featured Missionary: Bruce Betts

May 18, 2014 at 6:45 PM

Our featured missionary family this week was Bruce and Jakki Betts of Hattiesburg, MS.

Bruce Betts grew up on the streets of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, a tough character in a tough neighborhood. But then he met Jesus Christ, and his heart – and his life – was changed. And in August 2003, he returned to inner city Hattiesburg as a missionary pastor to start Logos Missionary Baptist Church.

Several years ago, Logos purchased a property on historic Mobile Street in Hattiesburg. Previously, the land had been the scene of frequent civil unrest, gang activity and even murders, but Brother Betts and the people of Logos had a vision for using it for the furtherance of God’s kingdom. As funds allow, the mission has been constructing a building on the property. The project is well over half finished, and they have a goal to complete it by the end of this year.

Meanwhile, the mission continues to meet in a community center on Sunday mornings. The work is often challenging, but souls are being saved and lives are being changed through the efforts of the Betts family and Logos.
