About

Come listen to Ryan Saville speak about overcoming our socialization. The news regularly highlights institutional and individual acts of racism. But these reports don’t only reveal the persistence of racism but a shallow understanding of it. Unearthing the pillars of implicit bias and socialization increases the likelihood of navigating conversations about racism successfully. This forum will deal with a biblical theology of socialization, seeing the socialization under appreciation dynamic and practical steps to overcoming implicit bias. 


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. As an ‘almost born free’ black person in South Africa, his life and ministry has been shaped by a longing for reconciliation. 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.
