Faith Adventurer- Jerry Savelle Goes To Be With The Lord

Jerry Savelle- 24 Dec 1946 to 15 April 2024 (77)

It is with great sadness we have been notified that Brother Jerry Savelle has graduated to Heaven and is now with the Almighty God. He was very special to us. After leaving our Christian denomination studies for the ministry, we went on to be licensed and later ordained by Brother Jerry in Crawley, Texas. Although, we did not talk to him frequently, Jerry Savelle was definitely a spiritual father and inspiration to us.

We will never forget all that Jerry has done for the Kingdom. From a mechanic in Louisiana fixing car bodies to a major voice for the goodness of God around the world, Brother Jerry demonstrated in His life that nothing is impossible to those who believe. His messages are uplifting and refreshing, showing that whomever you are, if you walk by faith, your life can become an adventure. Jerry called life adventures in faith.

Our favorite message was Jerry preaching Oral Roberts’ message “The Fourth Man”. You can see the video we pulled together of it here. From a guy fixing cars in Louisiana to a God-lover encouraging and building the body of Christ around the world, we would have never been the same without Jerry.

Praise God for Jerry Savelle! A job well done, good and faithful servant of the most high God! We are going to miss you!

In His Service With You,
Spencer Patrick

Pat Robertson A Man Of Great Faith

(8 June 2023) Years ago I felt led by the Holy Spirit to make a trip to Virginia to meet Gordon Robertson and see the things that were going on in the ministries there of Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), Regent University, Operation Blessing, and all the associated ministries there on the campus of this great ministry. Although I did not talk with him personally, I was very impressed by the impact one man’s faith can have on a generation. This is the guy that my state of Washington elected as our candidate for the president of the United States. This is the guy who built a ministry to tell people about Jesus, to educate people in God’s ways as well as the ways of commerce and government. Pat Robertson is the embodiment of what God can do through anyone with a bit of faith and motivation. He impacted his generation through using ‘every available voice’ of TV, the internet, radio, print media, books, and much more.

On my visit I stayed at the Founders Inn. This was the on campus hotel for visitors. I was welcomed by Gordon Robertson and got to hear about his vision as CEO of this vast ministry his father had founded. We also talked about what God is doing in Japan. It was neat to see the ministries in animation that they have done for Japan with Superbook. This week we lost a champion of the faith, but the foundation of what Pat Robertson did has changed our world for ever. Now it’s our turn.

Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;
Do not fret—it only causes harm.
For evildoers shall be cut off;
But those who wait on the LORD,
They shall inherit the earth.

Powerful Gathering Of Jesus People at Houston Faith Church

Powerful time in Houston today! Houston Faith Church really rocks! It’s great to see a strong faith church in Texas.

The worship was excellent with a full band (even with Bongos!). People super friendly and loving. When I walked in early, they were praying in the sanctuary before service, with many people walking around.

Outside people were in the cafe fellowshipping. I was warmly greeted. The message was excellent appropriately on faith. Check out the linked vid above.
