Sven-Axel Conrad is a Danish pastor/evangelist who grew up speaking Swahili and Danish in Tanzania, Africa. At a young age, when his father died, Sven-Axel believed the Lord wanted him to continue in his father’s calling to evangelize the country of Tanzania, which he and his wife and children did for 15 years until the death of their oldest son in 2001. In 2007, Sven-Axel’s wife of 38 years died of cancer. During the time that followed, he lived in Denmark and returned for a time each year to Africa where he was a safari leader and interpreter for people from Europe who wanted to experience a safari. After years of wrestling with grief and wondering if he would ever minister again, he encountered God’s heart for Tanzania and had a new call to bring the leaders of the body of Christ in Tanzania together so they could pray for healing for the nation.
In 2017, Sven-Axel married Jenny. The story of their meeting when Jenny was an exchange student in Denmark, many years earlier, is a remarkable God-story in itself. They now live in Denmark and travel half of the year to Tanzania where Sven-Axel preaches the Word of God and they see the amazing works of God. Sven-Axel will have you riveted to your seat as he shares stories of how the power of God is moving in Tanzania and the true miracles He is doing there. Sven-Axel is a humble man who has trusted God in the storms of adversity and has witnessed the restoration of God in his own life and the lives of individuals and nations. God is doing mighty things. Your faith will be strengthened. You will be encouraged. In preparation, please read 2 Corinthians 2:14-17.
