Daniel Savage – Worship Arts Pastor

Savage Family-16 (1)

My Story

I accepted the call to ministry while attending the University of Arkansas in 2004. I began my ministry as Worship Pastor at FBC Westwego in January of 2007. It was during my first semester at the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary that I started understanding the huge need for churches to be planted in “frontier” regions. I knew that at some point, God would lead me to be involved in taking the gospel to one of these unreached areas.

My Story

I have been confident in my relationship with Christ for a long time and during college God made it clear to me that he wanted me to serve him in full time ministry. I have been in full time ministry for the past 13 years and have considered myself blessed to serve God in the capacity that I have been able to serve. We have lived in S.C. serving the Lord for the last decade. In a heartfelt time of prayer and discussion my wife and I agreed that God was calling us to serve him in a big way and decided to move our family from Manning, SC to Ogden UT to serve with Redemption Church.

The need for the gospel in this area is great and the need for workers to help with the harvest is greater. We consider it a joy to be here and to serve with these people in this city.

My Story

In the summer of 2004, I had a great experience in Burley, Idaho working at a local church. God showed me that my priorities in life were centered around my own achievement rather than God’s desires. I realized that I wanted to spend the rest of my life pointing people to Jesus.

After finishing up seminary in New Orleans in 2009, God called me and Lindsay to serve as youth pastor at Mountain View Baptist Church in Layton, Utah. It was during my time there that God started giving a vision for Redemption Church. We love the uniqueness of Ogden and Weber State University. We are thankful and privileged that we get to be here serving God and planting Redemption Church!
