The former chairman of Frikirkenet, Lars Bo Olesen, will be the new principal of IABC from 1st of August 2020.
For the past 4 ½ years, the International Apostolic Bible College in Kolding has been lead by Ingrid Frederiksen as the principal, and Peter Prothero as the director. In November Peter Prothero resigned, and the school board has been working on a new leadership combination.
- It is with great pleasure that we can announce that we are hiring Lars Bo Olesen, senior pastor from Åbenkirke in Herning, he will be the new principal of the college. He will be part of a strong leadership team together with Ingrid Frederiksen, current principal, who will continue in a new role focusing on the day-to-day running of the college, says Jesper Kure, chairman of the board of the International Apostolic Bible College.
He identifies Lars Bo Olesen as a skilled visionary leader who, among other things, is known for his work as a former chairman of the Frikirkenet, and has played a significant role in the making of "Himmelske Dage på Heden" last year in Herning.
- I look forward to leading a college that challenges, inspires and equips today's youth with a belief that what God has placed in them is strong. And that we help them to become the best version of themselves, says Lars Bo Olesen.
In recent years, the college has particularly focused on strengthening the church connection, being training to serve there, and students have been involved in weekly internships in churches in various parts of the country. This will be further strengthened, as Lars Bo Olesen will continue as a leading pastor of Open Church Herning.
- We train people for life, life with each other and life with God. This is about much more than being a pastor and being church, it's about living with faith in God, and with the perspective that gives, every day - whether you are a pastor, teacher, lawyer, businessman or something else, says Lars Bo Olesen.
