Reidar Kvinge“I have felt an ever increasing desire to be directly involved in evangelistic work. That is the reason why I am taking this step now,” said Kvinge.

Kvinge informed the Trans-European Division President, Pastor Raafat Kamal, of his decision on Wednesday morning, 15 March. In his response, Pastor Kamal thanked Kvinge for his committed leadership of the Union, especially commending him for his positive attitude. Kamal stated, “I can only respect your will and wish you and Lynn all the best in your future plans, especially your desire to focus on evangelism.
