Church formation and ordination

I am no longer af memeber of The Evangelical_lutheran Freechurch in Denmark.

On Ascension day i took part in the forming of a new independent lutheran congregation in Aarhus, Denmark. The name of the congregation is 'Augustanakirken', in english 'The Augustana Church'.

Shortly after, I received a call from the congregation and on the 1st of July I was ordained to the holy preaching office.

Augustanakirken is in fellowship with two small congregtaions served by pastor Lyrstrand. We are not in fellowship with the LCMS or any of its sisterchurches.

We try to establish contact with orthodox lutheran congregations and churches in order to recognize churchfellowship with orthodox lutheran churches.
