Evangelist Jerry Savelle dies at the age of 77

The Jerry Savelle Ministries has announced his passing away of their founder, Dr. Jerry Savelle, on Monday, April 15, at the age of 77. This was made known on their Facebook page saying:

It is with both profound sorrow and divine peace that we announce Dr. Jerry Savelle, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, pastor, mentor, and resolute friend, has stepped into his eternal reward this day, Monday, April 15, 2024. Dr. Savelle lived a life marked by an adventure in faith.

Brother Jerry’s journey on earth was one of immense impact, rooted in the powerful love of Jesus Christ. His life testified to the beauty of grace and power of faith. As he often reminded us, through God’s hands, "nobodies" are turned into champions, and today, he himself has received the crown of righteousness laid up for all who are called according to His purpose.

While our hearts miss his physical presence, we are comforted by the Holy Spirit and filled with a joy that transcends earthly understanding. As the Apostle Paul encouraged the Thessalonians, we stand firm in our hope and the knowledge that this separation is but temporary. We do not mourn as those without hope, for we know that in Christ, we shall see Brother Jerry again.

Join us in prayer for Mrs. Savelle, Jerriann, Terri, and the entire family. Together we celebrate his life, remembering and honoring the legacy of character, faith, and integrity that Dr. Jerry Savelle so gracefully built. His teachings, love, and example have left an indelible mark on countless hearts, all of which are encouraged by his ministry.

"Well done, good and faithful servant... Enter into the joy of your lord." Matthew 25:21
We will announce the details of Dr. Savelle’s celebration of life as they are confirmed over the next week.

Please look for updates, which will be made public at the appropriate time.

Born on the 24th of December, 1946, Dr. Jerry Savelle was an American author and televangelist who was president of Jerry Savelle Ministries International (JSMI).

Dr. Savelle embarked on his ministry journey in 1974, initially as a traveling preacher. Prior to answering the call to ministry, he pursued a career in autobody repair. Growing up in an environment centered around racetracks, he harbored a desire to follow in his father's footsteps and own an automotive business since the age of nine. At eleven, while watching Oral Roberts on television, Savelle felt a divine calling to pursue ministry.

In 1964, he enrolled in college and married Carolyn Creech in 1965. Establishing Jerry's Paint and Body Shop in 1968, his aspirations shifted back to ministry in 1969. In February of that year, Savelle made a life-changing decision to dedicate his life to Christ. During the early stages of his ministry, he travelled extensively and received mentorship under Kenneth Copeland.

Together with his wife Carolyn, Savelle served as founding pastors of the Heritage of Faith Christian Center in Crowley, Texas, which serves as the hub for his ministry activities.
