Ted grew up in a small country town in Texas. After completing his studies in theology and music at Oral Roberts University, he travelled throughout Europe and north America for 4 years with an evangelistic music group called Living Sound. Much of their work was done behind the “iron curtain” and Ted has some adventurous stories to tell from those days! In 1981 he married Siw and moved to Sweden, where he has served as pastor and leader in various churches. In 1986 Ted served as worship pastor in Las Vegas for 4,5 years. In 1992 Ted was one of the founding pastors in the first Vineyard church plant in Stockholm, and after this Ted and Siw planted and led Gothenburg Vineyard 1995-2000. In 2000 Ted and his family moved to California, where he led Vineyard Music USA for several years. Currently, Ted is the missions coordinator for Vineyard Nordic and serves together with Siw as the National Leader of Vineyard Sweden. He is passionate about teaching God’s Word, worship, church and family, and is constantly amazed by the wonder of God’s creation around us.
