Steve Savage - Pastor

Steve & Debbie Savage have been married since 1989 and have three adult children: Sydney, Dustin, and Bryce. Steve graduated with a BRE from Covenant Baptist Bible College in Mission B.C. in 1985, but decided to pursue a marketing career. After 20+ years working in the corporate world, the Savages were called to enter full-time vocational ministry. Steve has since pastored three different churches in three different provinces across Canada. They enjoy watching sports (especially football), love their coffee (especially with friends), and appreciate any opportunity to travel and experience other cultures (especially with family).

Bryce and his wife, Elizabeth, have three boys – Coleman, Gilbert, and Lewis. Bryce and Elizabeth both grew up in missionary families before graduating from North Greenville University. Bryce earned his Masters of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, and the Harrisons moved to Nova Scotia in 2021 to pursue the Lord’s calling to plant churches. They love Atlantic Canada and are so thankful for the team and community that the Lord has gathered around them. Bryce enjoys soccer, Shark Week, and all things Tolkien. If he’s not watching episodes of Bluey or being used as a human climbing gym, he may also be spotted in his natural habitat at your local disc golf course.
