Opening up to the Outreaching of God

Keynote Speaker

James C. Savage

PhD Hebrew Union College;
PhD Union Institute

Jim is an OT and Josephus scholar as well as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC). He has specialized in the art of ancient story-telling, and he runs a counseling practice called Life Quest Odysseys.  

Covenant is not just a topic for Jim, but a path for life.  He tends to be low-key in his approach, humble, gentle in spirit, and unassuming in personal manner. And he is very sharp!

Jim and his wife Diane live in Mayfield, KY, on a 75 acre farm which they use as a retreat center in relation to the counseling practice.


This Will Be a Seminar/Workshop

The more each participates, the more we all will take away.

I want all of these to be presentations followed by discussions of the topic.
