Sven started his ministry at Hillcrest School in 1985. Later that year, he began work at Chemawa Indian School, until the Fall of 1994. Both were evangelistic enterprises working with high school-age young people.
During those years, he was also a volunteer Youth Leader at Peoples Church. From 1994 until 2011 Sven taught an adult Sunday school class at Peoples Church, as well as Wednesday night men's classes (Dad's Coaching Series & Raising Modern Day Knights).
Most importantly, Sven is actively looking for the next man he can disciple, as well as leading his family in the Lord.
