About the Speaker: Ryan Saville has grown up in Cape Town South Africa. He is married to Sachi and they have two kids; Jude and Thandi. He has a bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering and a bachelor of theology. He started his pastoral ministry working for the Anglican Church in 2005 and later joined Jubilee Community Church where he now serves on the pastoral staff.

His confident passion is that the gospel of Jesus Christ is not only able to reconcile people to God but all things; even extreme differences between affluence and poverty, black and white, anger and pain.
