Welcome to Stavanger Festival-18!

Karisma Church invites children, young and older; families, single, friends, neighbours – and all churches to Stavanger Festival 18!

Stavanger Festival is a Jesus-centered, Bible-based and People-focused conference in our region. We want it to be an arena where Christian unity and diversity are made visible. There will be large meetings, family meeting, meetings for for children and youth, bouncy castle, activities, tent for barbecuing, youth cafe – and not least an opportunity to an encounter with God. We have invited world class speakers that guaranteed will affect your life!

In the power of the Spirit!"

We need to celebrate! In the midst of the fact that God wants to meet you in everyday life, where life is lived – God wants to give us days that «stand out» in our lives and lift us on! Our prayer is that StavangerFestival 18 will be such days. God`s thoughts and His plan for your life is fantastic – and we need to seta side time for Him to touch us and speak to us! The Bible has many stories on how God spoke into people`s lives, and transformed their lives! Stavanger Festival is a meeting place for praise, preaching and good fellowship. Our hope is that these days can bring new energy, focus and joy to life and ministry as christians, and inspiration to the church you belong to. This years headline is «In the power of the Spirit». These days shall in a special way, be influenced by the Holy Spirit – God`s life-transforming, sustaining and enabling presence to you. If you don`t belong to any church, are unsure of where you stand regarding faith and being a believer – you are especially warmly welcome, too!

Best regards Irene and Tormod
​(Main Pastor); hosts together with the pastoral team in Karisma Church.

Joakim Lundqvist
Together with his spouse Maria, they are at the forefront as pastor couples of Word of Life(LO) in Uppsala, Sweden. LO is a leading church, which in recent weeks has experienced a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit's power and gifts in a wonderful way.
The Word of Life is a movement that counts more than 200,000 people worldwide with main centers in Yerevan (Armenia), Moscow (Russia) and Uppsala (Main).
Pastor Joakim is a communicator of faith and the power of the Word - and communicates in a way that "hits home" for all generations. As a church, we particularly appreciate the relationship we experience with LO and the inspiration and power they add to our work. More info: https://www.livetsord.se/

Joyce Wilkerson
Joyce is a church planter and pastor. Together with her husband, Mark, they planted the Connect Church in Berlin, Germany. She grew up in the UK. About 13 years ago, the couple moved to Berlin and planted the church that is linked to the Hillsong movement. Connect Church has experienced a formidable growth in the secular and multireligious Europe metropolis and has many worship services every Sunday to serve the young generation in the city. Joyce is a new acquaintance for us as a church but is invited from the contact our pastors got with Joyce after a leadership conference this year in OKS Oslo. We look forward to meeting and hearing her!

This is exciting! Kåre is the main speaker of SF Kids and will also speak in the conference.. Kåre is the author of several current novels. They can be purchased in the Bookstore during the conference. More info: https://www.facebook.com/kaareskuland/

He has a passionate commitment to the society and is a respected man among prominent community leaders in the metroplis city. He is a pastor in the church they planted 15 years ago and the principal of the Bible school they started at the same time.

With Joakim Lundqvist and Arnfinn Clementsen
Friday 7th. Of September 2pm – ca 4:30pm
Place: Karismakirkens café, Adj. Hauglandsgt 52, 4022 Stavanger


These days, Word of Life, Uppsala, experiences a revival of the Holy Spirit, and His gifts ar poured out and relased strong among them. What began a few weeks ago when the Spirit touched the Bible school students in a special way, has now grown on to a wonderful wave of spiritual life that has «rolled» over the whole.assembly. You can`t construct or order the Holy Spirit to work in these ways. But when a stream from heaven comes upon us, it`s all the more important to see it, step into it and let ourselves be touched by it, just like Ezekiel when he went out into the river until he no longer reached the bottom. (Ezekiel 47).

However, what is happening right now in Word Of Life, is not only theirs, as we are many more who desire to be re-vitalized, touched and blessed by what He is doing.
In this leader day we will hear some of what God has done in Uppsala and let us be inspired!
At he same time, we will reflect and talk about how we can understand og relate to what God is doing in times of a fresh and unique outpouring of the Spirit.
And of course there will be room for personal prayer and intercession for each other.
Arnfinn Clementsen will also share his experiences during this day, and we will open up for Q&A.

This gathering is open to anyone how has a leader position and responsibility in one way or another in church and society, and who finds the theme relevant.

Enrollement via CheckIn. Deadline is 6th of September, but it`s an advantage to be out early

Kr 150, - per person
Student Price: NOK 50, -.
Included in the price is hot food, dessert, coffee and tea. Other drinks can be bought seperately.
