Karen Savage humbly and graciously serves through Fresh Fire Apostolic Ministries as a leader and a recognized Minister of the Gospel. Karen was born in Ottawa, Ontario – in a very small town called Stittsville. . Karen began to attend the Fresh Fire’s Healing and Deliverance Encounters in Milton, Ontario where through the powerful teachings, Karen began her call and she was bringing groups of friends, saved and unsaved, to witness and see the power of God and all He could do in their lives. Many were led unto salvation there as her heart’s cry was to bring the lost to be found; to bring the hurting and broken so they could be transformed and awakened just like she was; and, to bring the sick to be healed. Just like an Evangelist! Karen began to receive powerful truths and began to understand the true nature of God and healing power within her because of Christ Jesus. She hungered for more and as she hungered for more, she began to minister to many and bring them the Good News of Christ. She serves at Fresh Fire Apostolic Ministries as a leader and a prayer intercessor. Karen also serves as a Board of Director and is diligently involved in many aspects of the ministry and Apostolic Hub, and most recently commissioned into the Office of an Evangelist in 2022.
