Gospel teaching in schools

Tolerance is valued in Denmark, so it is safe to talk about faith in public. On the other hand it is widely believed that religion is a private matter. In 2009 KFS, the evangelical student movement, set a goal of reaching every single educational institution in Denmark with more than 100 students within a three-year period. Staff or student leaders gained permission to visit high schools and speak to students between lessons or attend lessons and give an introduction to the gospel. By 2012 only two places remained closed of KFS. A strength of KFS is the high school students’ strong commitment to the movement. The main challenge is that so few stay involved with KFS at university. Some think that student ministry in the university is unnecessary, others are not aware of KFS. Please pray that Christian university students will see the need for ministry among their peers and the value of KFS.
