Edwin Savala-Lipule - Youth Pastor

Pastor Eddie Savala recently joined the staff of our church as youth pastor. He and his family (wife Stacey and twin 5 year-old sons Alex and Adrian) moved here from St. Louis, MO, where he was a researcher at the International Institute, conducting a study on the best practices for resettlement of refugees.

. John Wesley has now become a growing multi-cultural, inter-generational church and wanted a youth pastor with multi-cultural experience, a heart for teens of more than one culture and ethnicity, and a passion for ministry. God called Eddie and family to meet these needs.  The family itself is multi-cultural as wife Stacey is from the United States and was a missionary to Kenya where they met and married. Eddie is fluent in English, Swahili and two Kenyan dialects.

His experience as a youth pastor in Nairobi, Kenya, helped to cement his passion to work with youth. "Whenever I interact with the youth, I realize how much their lives are at a crossroads, hence the great need for youth leaders who can help bring about direction in their lives. I want to be part of this kind of leadership that is willing and ready to mentor and develop youth to face today's challenge in a Christian Perspective."
