On Tuesday 3rd August, Tormod Røyland had his first working day as the new senior pastor of
Karisma Church. It was a solemn and expectant moment when Arnfinn Clementsen that morning
passed the key of the pastor's office to his successor, Tormod Røyland.

In his welcome speech, Clementsen emphasized that the pastor is a gift from God to the church, and
together with the staff he wished the new pastor well; the scene is set for an exciting and good
future with progress and growth.

Clementsen also expressed that he has looked forward to this day, and that he will appreciate his
new function based in Karisma Church.

The new pastor and pastoral couple will be officially inaugurated and welcomed during the service
on 22nd August at 4pm. There will also be representatives from the city council and neighbouring
churches in the town and county. Everyone is welcome on this special day!

people of today and future generations. A solid foundation has been laid, there is a rich history, it is
a great church with precious people of all generations, Norwegian and «internationals», and the best
lies ahead!
