Corsicana — Word Alive Church, currently meeting at I.O.O.F., will host Dr. Jerry Savelle at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 17. Dr. Jerry Savelle was an average, blue-collar man who was struggling and needed God’s help. While he considered himself a “nobody,” when he became a believer God told him not to worry about it because He was a master at making champions out of nobodies. God has since taken Dr. Savelle from being a constant quitter to a man who knows how to stand on the Word of God until victory is experienced. Because of the life-changing combination of God’s faithfulness and Dr. Savelle’s “no quit” attitude, his life is totally different than it was 38 years ago. Since 1969, Savelle has traveled the world teaching people how to win in life. He has ministered in more than 3,000 churches in 26 nations, and has overseas offices in the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and a mission’s outreach in Tanzania, Africa. God has used Dr. Savelle to impact people who are burned out on religion and who have backslidden in their walk with God, as well as Christians who have a need to hear the Word of God presented in terms applicable to their lives, dreams, and destinies. He is the host of the Jerry Savelle Ministries television broadcast which airs in 200 countries worldwide. Dr. Savelle is the author of more than 40 books, including his bestsellers, If Satan Can’t Steal Your Joy, He Can’t Keep Your Goods and Called to Battle, Destined To Win. He and his wife, Carolyn, also serve as founding Pastors of Heritage of Faith Christian Center in Crowley, Texas.
