We want cooperation in equiping and strenghtening christian youth to live out their faith in their everyday life at school and at university, and find a home in their local church. Only a minority of young people in Norway go to church, but all of them attend shool, so why not have churchlife follow them there?
Purpose of cooperation:
Laget wants to be an extension of the church into schools and campuses so that Jesus can be known there. It is our conviction that together we stand stronger, and can reach many more than otherwise. At the same time we are commited to connecting students to local churches and congregations so that they can grow as christians and find a home in their local church.
To date there are local "lag" at more than 200 schools, however most schools are without. Together we can reach them all!
