Per Birkeli: Norea’s New Leader
Norea Norway has a new director. Per Birkeli, 47 years old, comes from Kristiansand, where Norea is located. Since 2008, he has been working in Indonesia as a missionary with the Norwegian Lutheran Mission (NLM), but will be returning to Kristiansand with his family in June. After a short break, he will begin his new position with Norea.
Before moving to Indonesia, Birkeli was working with PR and administration in the organization Open Doors Norway. The former director of Norea, Tore Askildsen, became a mayor in his hometown of Mandal last autumn and has therefore relinquished his position as the director of Norea.By: Synnøve Kvervavik Vatne
