Rev. Dr. Jeff Savage is a Spiritual Director and Pastor Emeritus of FBC Springfield, OR. He and his wife Janet are hosts of Sacred Space Vida, a spiritual retreat center in Oregon. Their home and retreat center were lost during the west coast wild fires in 2020. They are in the process of rebuilding. During our conversation we discuss the role of a spiritual director, the benefits of spiritual direction, and what to expect in such a relationship.

Worship shapes our faith and what we believe. Preparing each week for worship is challenging in the best of times. Since COVID pushed many of our in person experiences online, the challenges have been magnified. Yet we know that quality Christ centered worship is a feast for the soul.
Our special guest are the praise team from the American Baptist Church of FBC Gardner, KS. Because we have learned that consuming religious content is not the same thing as participating in Christian community, our conversation focuses on the theological as well as technical aspects to leading worship in this new landscape. FBC Gardner has done this better than most and I hope you are encouraged by our conversation.
