Per Eivind Kvammen works as a pastor for a young and thriving Pentecostal church. Together with Intro, Sentrumskirken in Sandnes represents the new wave of innovative, fast growing and newly planted young communities from the oil region. Sentrumskirken recently released their new song “Frihet”, now heard in churches all over Norway.
Per Eivind has a long history as a church leader and pastor. To him being involved in church is not something new at all, but a passion rooted deep in his heart. Asked to put his passion into words, the answer is simple: “My passion is to build churches that give Jesus and the gospel to a new generation and equips them to lifelong discipleship of Jesus.”
Kvammen studies at HLT parallel with his full-time job as a pastor at the other side of the country. Despite a hectic schedule and long travel distance HLT was the perfect solution that matched what he was looking for in several ways. “HLTs vision to focus on both academia and spiritual power attracts me. In addition, HLT is good at facilitating for those already serving as pastors with a busy lifestyle.”
For his Bachelors degree, Per Eivind specialize in church leadership. A specialization that is tailored for church leaders, who he believes has made him better equipped to work as a pastor. “My HLT education has given me greater confidence in the job as a church leader. I have learned new things, become grounded in things I knew before and led in the direction of good literature that continues to stretch me.”
