DR. RANDY LOESCHER
Dr. Randy Loescher serves as an adjunct professor at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses on a variety of subjects including Spirit-Empowered Pastoral Care, Administration of Teaching Ministries, Sermon Prep, Church Planting, Team Ministry, and Spiritual Formation. He also serves as the Director of Church and Educational Partnerships for the University.
An ordained minister, Randy served for seven years in pastoral ministry. He acted as Director for the TEXOMA District of Open Bible Churches for eight years and Church Planting Director for their Central Region for twelve years.
In 1993, Dr. Loescher and three of his ORU alumni friends founded a missions service organization called Bridge the Gap International, Inc. (BGI). BGI now processes funds for more than thirty-five national and international ministries so that these ministers can focus on ministry rather than accounting.
Randy has a heart to see the Word of God and the Spirit of God treated with equal respect and reverence. He believes the supernatural moving of God’s Spirit and responsible biblical interpretation are not mutually exclusive. He contends that Spirit-filled theologians and Spirit-filled ministers need each other. When these two groups work together, the body of Christ will learn to flow in the Holy Spirit’s anointing and guard that anointing at the same time. Responsible proclamation of the Word will be accompanied by a powerful demonstration of the Word.
Randy has been married since May 2000 to his wife Kerry Loescher who is a full-time professor in the Undergraduate Theology Department at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa. Together, they have five children and seven grandchildren.
