We are excited to continue a new Leadership Network blog series called “Conversations on Church Innovations.” These video and audio posts feature candid conversations with innovative church leaders from across the country talking about the areas of ministry they are passionate about.
Andy Savage is Teaching Pastor at Highpoint Church. My personal mission statement is simply, “Making God make sense, starting at home then everywhere else.” Being part of Highpoint Church since day one has been one of the greatest honors of my life. My history in ministry began just after my freshman year of college as the youth pastor. Three years later, I returned to the church where I grew up to serve as the pastor to college students and young singles. In 2000, I started Metro Bible Study, a city-wide gathering of young singles across the Mid-South, which quickly grew to over 800 in attendance every week. In 2002, I stepped out in faith with Chris Conlee to help launch Highpoint. I’m a native Memphian, a graduate of Houston High School, Class of 1994, and earned my bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Memphis followed by a master’s degree in Christian Studies from Union University. I’m married to Amanda, and we have five children, Drew, Cooper, Wesley, Ford and Joshua, which are my greatest joy and highest calling.
Leadership Network Director Chris Willard had the opportunity to talk with Andy Savage about changing the game on marriage ministry. The 3 ‘S’ approach – Start, Strengthen and Save Marriages – teaches couples from to move out of the constant ‘crisis mode’ and onto small successes won inch by inch. Andy has a rare and unique legacy to share with other couples that propels him to guide them through leading in their marriage and families as well as in his own. Enjoy this Leadership Network Conversation!
