New Evangelical Alliance Leader Calls for Unity

Newly elected as head of the Danish Evangelical Alliance, Thomas Bjerg Mikkelsen is calling Danish churches of different traditions to unite around their common roots — and the Savior. Mikkelsen, 35, comes to the influential leadership role after four years as general secretary of Indre Mission, the Lutheran renewal movement.

“Differences aside,” he told Domino (an online magazine for Danish free churches), “Lutherans, Baptists, and Pentecostals all value salvation in Christ and missions. We all share the Holy Spirit, and we’re all loved by Christ. So we need to see each other as brothers and sisters, even across cultural boundaries, confessions, and traditions. That’s why it’s also important that we can meet in a fellowship where we can pray together and be inspired by each other.”

PRAY that believers from different Bible-believing churches will unite for prayer, outreach, and revival across Denmark.

PRAY that longstanding differences will be put aside as God's Spirit moves across the land.

PRAY for Thomas, that he would rely on Christ for daily wisdom and courage.
