Neil Saavedra is host/producer of The Jesus Christ Show, an interactive radio theater experience designed to engage and inspire listeners and callers to learn more about themselves and the historical person of Jesus Christ.
Born into a large family of seven kids and raised in Southern California, Saavedra started his career in radio in January 1990. Armed with a desire to defend truth and his varied studies of logic, theology, philosophy and religion.
In addition to producing the radio show, Saavedra occasionally lectures and teaches at various churches and schools on everything from live Q&A to logic and religious philosophy. This is in line with his undying love to share with others what some have kindly shared with him.
Saavedra first studied Catholic apologetics at Saint Pascal’s Day School in Thousand Oaks, Calif., then Protestant Apologetics at Chalcedon Christian Academy, where he studied topics such as critical thinking, Theology and general Apologetics. Saavedra has also taken supplemental courses on the cults, Hebrew, the Trinity and general Apologetics at schools such as Simon Greenleaf University (Trinity School of Law) in Southern California and School of the Oaks in Westlake Village, Calif.
Saavedra refers to himself a “self taught lay apologist”, not because he hasn’t been taught anything from wonderful teachers (he has), but because although he has warmed the seats of many a classroom, he currently holds no degrees (and he hates when people try and sound more educated than they actually are).
