Ottar leads VBVMI efforts to reach Europe with the truth of God's word. He first learned of VBVMI while listening to podcasts on iTunes, and later traveled to Texas to visit with Pastor Armstrong personally. He was impressed with the people and culture of the ministry and has been a supporter ever since. In 2015 he took the next step of joining the ministry staff to advance the cause of verse-by-verse Bible teaching in churches in his home country of Norway and beyond.
Ottar lives near Oslo, Norway, with his wife, Isabelle, and his four children.
