Bill Saye was born on Sept. 13, 1942. He died in prison on Sept. 24 1982. He was immediately born again.

Saye will tell his story of redemption from organized crime during revival services at Springhill Baptist Church, Nov. 28 through Dec. 2.

“Bill Saye is a dynamic speaker and we are fortunate to have him at Springhill Baptist Church,” said Pat Anderson, church member.

“His story is one that everybody will benefit from hearing.”

Anderson said that during Saye’s 40 years of unsaved living, he was a truck driver who became involved in organized crime.

He became the head of a large drug organization in 1975.

“Bill Saye became a multi-millionaire in the drug world but, in 1980, he was arrested for first degree murder and was under the threat of the death penalty for two years,” Anderson said.

Saye said there is no way that anyone can imagine what being under the death penalty does to a person.

“Nothing had mattered to me because I was making so much money,” he said.

“But the money that I was making never did me any good. It never accomplished anything for me because, in the end, I ended up with nothing.”

God intervened in Saye’s life and now he shares his story all across the nation through his ministry, which proclaims freedom in Christ.

Anderson said people of all ages and all denominations will benefit from hearing Saye’s message of hope, faith and trust in the mercy of God.

The revival services at Springhill Baptist Church will be at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Sunday and at 7 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday.
