Dr. Saggio has been involved in ministry, writing, and higher education for over thirty-five years having taught at six different institutions as well as served for ten years as a youth pastor and lead pastor. An educator with a pastor's heart, Dr. Saggio cares passionately for students' academic and spiritual development and believes that the two should work together. He and his wife Nancy have a great love for Native people and have grown to appreciate their tribal contributions and value systems that greatly honor experience, balance, wisdom, and practical knowledge. He holds a B.A. in Speech Communication from California State University, Fresno; an Religion (Contemporary Ministries) from Azusa Pacific University, another M.A. in Religion (Biblical Studies) from Vanguard University of Southern California, and an Ed.D. from Arizona State University in Higher and Adult Education. In Summer 2003 he did post-doctoral studies at Harvard University in higher educational leadership. Dr. Saggio loves a great cup of strong coffee, enjoys long walks in quiet settings, reading, and is an avid fan of NCIS, The Big Bang Theory, Hawaii Five O, historical documentaries, and travel. He has been to more than thirty countries on five continents including Belgium, Ireland, Brazil, Paraguay, France, India, and Cuba. Dr. Saggio is passionately committed to equipping Native Americans and others for a life of Christian service in order to fulfill their destiny.
