Karl-Johan Kjøde (General Secretary) talks about the importance of cooperation when tackling the difficulties facing students today

Our call as a movement is to be the extended arm of the church into schools and campuses. There we support students who want to follow Jesus, so that they can grow in the recognition of His love, and share it with others. School and university is a place where young people spend significant parts of their waking hours. It is therefore crucial that we – the Church of Christ – equip them, and support them in this. For this Laget needs the churches and the churches need Laget!

As Christians we believe that every pupil, and student is inalienable to God, but lost without Christ. It is therefore urgent that we spread the news of Jesus to the 300.000 students and the pupils in the 1600 junior- and senior highschools in norway. This is most effectively done by the students themselves. Our mission is therefore: To pray for, equip and support the students in their mission, so that Jesus is believed, loved and followed on all schools and campuses.

  1. It is a specific way to support the students and pupils in the congregation, independant of the churches own resources

  2. Laget has a unique competance and capability as a pupil- and student-organisation, which we gladly share

  3. We – unlike most congregations – are permitted access to schools and campuses

  4. We work both locally and nationally for the young people of your congregation, especially their rights to freedom of religion and speach, in a time where these rights are threatened.

  5. The time in school and studies is by far the most formative phase in life. The beliefs, habits and values aquired here will shape much of young peoples lives.
