Norway is known for its fjord-indented coastline, mountains and unspoiled natural beauty. It is a long, narrow and mountainous narrow country with a small population of 5 million people located in Scandinavia. Over the last 60 years, the country has developed from one of the poorest countries in Europe into a strong and wealthy industrial state with high earnings from oil, mining, fishing, forest products and high-tech industries.
OM has a long history of involvement with the church in Norway since it was registered in 1982. The OM team has mainly been a sending field and has been mobilizing people to pray, give and go. For more than 30 years, hundreds of Norwegians have served all around the world on long term and on short term teams.
In partnership with churches we mobilize, equip and train people for world evangelism. We send Norwegians to serve overseas in many parts of the world, raise funds for other ministries and motivate people to be involved in prayer.
The last few years we have seen a growing need of developing a ministry in Norway for a renewal of the church as there are an increasing number of non-believers. In partnership with the church, OM in Norway mobilizes for mission locally as well as globally. We arrange outreaches and provide practical mission-training for the local churches to equip and train them to reach out locally.
