Spring Banquet

With our annual Fundraising Banquet coming up on April 19th, things are very busy at Sav-A-Life. We are bathing the entire event—and all preparations for it—in prayer. Our prayer coordinator, GiniBeth, is organizing 40 Days of Prayer in the days leading up to the Banquet. This will begin March 11th and we will be posting each day’s request on Facebook for those who wish to partner with us in prayer over the work God will be doing.
Rebecca St. James will be the featured speaker of the evening. She is a talented singer/songwriter who has graced the contemporary Christian music scene. We are very much looking forward to hearing about her passion for purity and the sanctity of human life through musical expression.

“At the age of 12—a time when most young girls are just beginning idyllic dreams of ‘what I want to be’—a young Australian girl prayed a simple prayer. ‘God, I give you my gifts. Use my life to make a difference and change the world.’
Rebecca St. James has since taken an unparalleled course in Christian music.  As the industry’s innovative ‘new voice’ as a teen in the mid-90’s, she blazed a trail in the contemporary Christian genre for many other talented female artists to come.” 

“Australian born Rebecca St. James is both a Grammy Award winner and multiple Dove Award recipient, who can count her lead acting role in the film Sarah’s Choice, among her most recent career highlights. With international success that has driven her record sales into the multi-millions globally, she has been tireless on the concert/ live performance front since breaking as a major artist in the Christian music industry while still in her teens. Rebecca was in 2008 for the 7th consecutive year named "Favorite Female Artist" in Contemporary Christian Music by readers of CCM Magazine for the 7th year in a row.”

“A gifted songwriter, St. James’ signature blend of modern pop/rock sensibilities and lyrics of unwavering devotion have blazed the way to seventeen Top 10 singles--nine of which have reached the #1 spot on the charts to date(Jackie Monaghan). In addition to being a best selling author, advocate for Compassion International, and acting in several national film productions as well as Sarah’s choice, Rebecca has become a national media voice for ‘life,’ displaying her multi-faceted career. She held a lead role in the very recently released film “The Frontier Boys,” and her newest album, I Will Praise You is now available in stores and online and may be previewed on her website:

With versatile talent Rebecca St. James has been able to reach different kinds of audiences across the world. As a professing believer and supporter of pro-life ministries she is able to share the gospel with those around her by the way she lives her life and her unabashed confession of faith in a world that rejects the value God places on life.

Rebecca is passionate about youth-related ministries, especially those focused on young women’s purity. She shares some about the issue in this video:

After advocating for abstinence and purity before marriage, and as a now recently married woman, Rebecca is able to describe the ways in which the Lord blesses your marriage when you are faithful to wait. Watch this video:

Rebecca St. James’ message coupled with the love and care that go into each step of planning for the event will make for an inventive, beautiful evening in which we will have the opportunity to see God’s grace in action.
