Report on the 2010 Scandinavian Confessional Lutheran Youth Conference

What is Scandinavia House?
A good question! It is still developing,
but the basic outlines are becoming clear:

Scandinavia House exists to support
the Confessional Lutheran Remnant in Scandinavia.

  • A principal focus is helping Confessional pastors from Scandinavia to study at, especially, Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne.

  • It also serves as an unofficial liaison between Confessional movements in Scandinavia and Confessional Lutherans in the USA …

  • ... and as a source of information on developments in Scandinavia -- particularly concerning the effort to re-evangelize this most secularized region of the Earth.

  • A related goal is to help make the Scandinavian-American community aware of what has happened to the faith in their ancestral homelands …
    and of ways they might be able to help bring the Gospel back to “dem där hemma.”

    We have been disseminating English-language summaries of relevant news from Scandinavia, and plan to expand this service.
