For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.

Rom 1.16


Evangelist Jens Ottar Theisen


Jens Ottar is also known as Theisen Jr, son of the legendary Norwegian weather forecaster Vidar Theisen. After his conversion experience in 1985, Jens Ottar served as a youth leader in a congregation at Stovner in Oslo. He has a passion to see people meet Jesus, and through his peculiar style and radical preaching many young people have accepted Jesus as their Savior.

Later Jens Ottar moved to Senja in the arctic part of Norway to work as catechist for one year. After some months as a missionary in Nepal, he moved to Tana in the most northern Norwegian county to pastor a local church. He has also been engaged in missions and evangelism in Bosnia, and in 1995 he moved to the Russian Kola peninsula to serve as a missionary for Oslo Christian Center.

In May 1997 Jens Ottar got married to Anne Lise and they moved to the Norwegian town Kirkenes close to the Russian border.  In 1998 their son Isak André was born, and in 2001 they adopted their daughter Ester Mari from Seoul, Korea.

Jens Ottar still has a burning passion for Jesus Christ and the gospel. He preaches a radical biblical message and travels in Norwas as well as other parts of the world to share the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ.
