Retired BWA leader Denton Lotz dead at 80
Denton Lotz, who led the Baptist World Alliance through some of its most challenging years, died April 23 at age 80.

A former American Baptist missionary who taught at the International Baptist Theological Seminary in Switzerland, Lotz joined the global Baptist umbrella group in 1980 as evangelism director. He was named deputy general secretary in 1985 and took over as general secretary after his predecessor, Gerhard Claas, died in an automobile accident in 1988.

Lotz led the BWA until his retirement in 2007. Afterward he served 11 years as pastor of Tremont Temple Baptist Church in Boston.
