John Magnus

23 year-old John Magnus grew up in a large Christian family where Christianity was central to their lives for several generations. He says, “I am greatly blessed with parents who always put Jesus first and who have taught me and my siblings to do the same.” He currently lives in Fredrikstad, Norway where he works as student staff for Young Life. One of his most significant life experiences was when he moved to east Africa for 10 months and worked as a volunteer for Norwegian Lutheran Mission. He says of this experience, “I grew a lot as a person while I had to take responsibility and care for people in need and build relationships with my team members as we sought to focus on Jesus every day in every task He gave us.”

As a Developing Global Leader, John Magnus is studying social work at the University of Østfold because he wants to use his education to help struggling youth and immigrants find jobs in Norway as he understands the obstacles immigrants face when moving to a new country. He explains further, “It is difficult being part of the minority. It would mean a lot to me to be able to help people in this position build a better life for themselves and their families.” He will be the first in his family to graduate university.
