Born into a pastoral family, Elder Conrad Vine grew up with his twin brother and two sisters in homes across the UK. After graduating with a business management degree (1995), he served in the UK public healthcare system before God led him to ADRA (1996). Initially serving in Azerbaijan, Elder Vine served with ADRA through 2002 in a variety of roles worldwide. Following seminary training at Newbold College (2002-2004), he and Luda began their pastoral ministry in London, UK. After a stint in the Middle East Union, they served in the pastoral ministry for 4 years in Minnesota following which Elder Vine answered the call to serve as President of Adventist Frontier Missions (AFM). Elder Vine is an ordained minister of the Gospel in the SDA Church. Conrad and Luda were married in December 1999, and regard their marriage as a personal blessing from a loving Heavenly Father. They have two children, David and Christina.

“Looking back, I can see how God has lovingly shaped and prepared me to lead AFM” says Elder Vine. “Life’s experiences have brought tears of both joy and sorrow, but the Potter continues to shape me for His purposes. My dream is that people of every nation, tribe, people and tongue will be saved, and my joy every day is to see the Holy Spirit at work, drawing people from around the world into God’s kingdom. What a privilege! What a joy!”

Captives of Conscience

Our conscience is a God-given inner faculty by which the Holy Spirit gives an awareness of the morality of given actions, decisions and thoughts. Through our conscience, the Holy Spirit both bears witness to what we already know to be God’s will (Romans 2:15) and also reveals God’s will to us and the community of faith (Romans 9:1).
