Mrs. Savanna Loy
Savanna Loy was saved in October of 2010. She was not raised in a Christian home but had a desire to go to church and start visiting local Baptist churches. Her husband suggested she visited Woodland Hills Baptist Church because his own family had been there before. On the day before they were planning to visit the church, Pastor Ogdie left a tract on the door. The Loys knew this was the church they needed to visit and became members in 2010.
Savanna is married to Jordan Loy. They have six children, five of which are adopted and one that is their miracle child. Currently, Ms. Savanna has been the secretary since 2011 and was the original Principal of the Academy. She proudly ran it for the first 7 years of its existence. The school is still near and dear to her heart and her children attend, but since the church is rapidly growing, she is now focusing her efforts as full-time secretary. Ms. Savanna loves serving the Lord and is happy to be a faithful and active member.
