The keynote speaker at the «Road to VICTORY» conference´s opening meeting on Friday evening, June 22nd in Hedalen Stave Church will be the Vice-President of Romania´s Parliament, Dr. Ben-Oni Ardelean. He will speak on the topic «Europe´s and Norway´s Battle for the Values».
The Midsummer conference on June 22nd-24th is a cooperation between KKN and Solheimen Hotell in the mountainous and picturesque Valdres region, 400 meters from Hedalen Stave Church. This will be the first Midsummer conferenve that KKN has hosted since 1997, and will also mark a new phase for the Christian conference hotel which is owned and led by the KKN-friends Kari Brochmann Skoklefald and her husband Lars Samuelsen.
- We are really looking forward to these three days, and not the least that Dr. Ardelean is coming exclusively for this one event, says Jan-Aage Torp. - I got to know him in January 2016 when he came on behalf of the Romanian Senate to help the Bodnariu family in their time of need. He is a man of deep integrity. His grandparents and his parents suffered for their faith in Jesus during communism. Today he is recognized as a defender of freedom and Christian values in Romania, Europe and globally. He has double doctorates from some of Europe´s leading universities, but he is a down-to-earth and sociable man. He was a guest-of-honor when KKN gave the Family Defense Award to the Bodnariu family in 2017, and in March 2018 he was the keynote speaker at the annual gathering of European Apostolic Leaders in Scotland which I lead.
- It has great significance that he comes to Solheimen Hotell, Hedalen Stave Chruch (from 1165) and Christian Coalition World (KKN), underscores Jan-Aage Torp. - Only four-five days afterwards, the Council of Europe in Strasbourg will decide upon the report on the Norwegia CPS, «Barnevernet», whixch is written by the Vice-President of Moldova´s Parliament, Dr. Valeriu Ghiletchi, so many eyes will be focused on Norway.
- In addtion to Dr. Ardelean, Mrs. Kari Brochmann Skoklefald and I can present fantastic speakers: Rory Kaye, a passionate Messiah-believing Jew from New York and CEO for International Arts and Media, and Ms Grethe Tangen Olsen, the foremost Ambassador for Norwegian ministries to Israel, and several others. The program is developing from day to day, says Jan-Aage.
- And on the actual Midsummer eve, which is Saturday evening, we will have a bonfire, barbecue, party, praise and prayer!
