Michael Saville (2014 – 2018)
Reverend Michael Saville was born and raised on the West Coast of British Columbia, Canada and earned a Masters of Theology degree from Covenant Theological Seminary. He is married to Rachel and they have three daughters – Madeleine, Elisabeth and Emma.
After the untimely death of Pastor Ken Ramsay, Faith Reformed Church issued a call for a new Pastor and Reverend Saville felt led to respond to the call.
Reverend Saville came to Faith Reformed Church in October, 2014, from Emmanuel Chapel in Helena, Montana. Since then, he faithfully ministered to its members, adherents, friends, and other RCA associates until November 30, 2018.
He encouraged us, along with himself, to “know Christ and to make Him known”, to stay focused on this challenging ministry, and to fulfill this purpose prayerfully through Worship – Education in the Word – Evangelism and Outreach.
Faith Reformed Church has been privileged and blessed by the ministry of Reverend Michael Saville and his family.
