Reidar Kvinge Leaves Norwegian Union Presidency for Evangelism

March 15, 2017 | Pastor Reidar J Kvinge announced today that he is resigning as president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Norway. However, there is nothing dramatic in the reason for pastor Kvinge’s resignation even though his decision to resign came as a total surprise to most employees of the union.

the senior pastor of my church has also retired in order to focus on evangelism full time…i think some people just get a bigger boost out of being in the front lines, where people are responding to adventism for the first time…i can sort of see it in a way…staying on year after year in a church leadership position, facing constant problems and difficult people, and then not really getting paid all that much, is probably a real downer after awhile…

How does one “evangelize” in Lutheran country?


For what it’s worth, you pronounce the name “Kvinge” as “Quing-ee”.
