Carl-Henric Jaktlund has left his position as the national leader of Alpha Sweden after nearly seven years, to instead lead an initiative for a Nordic resource center for Alpha.
”The dream and vision of working more closely together as national Alpha offices has been around for many years. I am convinced that we will have enhanced opportunities to translate and develop the materials that the Christian community in the Nordic region needs as we work strategically together,” said Carl-Henric Jaktlund in a press release.
The national leadership will be taken over by Marie-Louise Nilsson, who has been working on strategic church relationships within Alpha Sweden in recent years.
”It is with great joy and a little trepidation that I assume the new role. I have loved coaching and inspiring churches and their leaders during the years I have worked in Alpha Sweden. Even though the new responsibilities also involve other tasks, it is within this area that I hope to continue to dedicate a lot of time and energy,” she said.
The work in their new roles began on Monday, October 16, and on Saturday, October 28, both Marie-Louise Nilsson and Carl-Henric Jaktlund will be leading Alpha Sweden’s national conference at St Clara Church in Stockholm.
”We want to focus on what it means to be an outward-oriented church in Sweden in our time and for the next generation. Sarah Jackson from Holy Trinity Brompton, the church where Alpha was founded, will be the keynote speaker and we will present a grand vision and initiative for the upcoming decade,” said Marie-Louise Nilsson.
