Hemavan Mountain Station is a registered hostel, and Bible College near the Arctic Circle in Sweden. Throughout its 35 year history, the staff at Hemavan have had a heart to reach the tourist population with the gospel. As outdoor enthusiasts flock to the region, Hemavan has been there to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with them.  Until 7 years ago, people in the area who had a heart to learn God’s word had been forced south to the larger cities. So, the decision was made to found a Bible School. Now, students have the opportunity to connect with tourists, as well as locals, in this isolated area.

Project Plan

The facilities at the center need to be updated. Renovations are taking place to allow each room to have its own bathroom. Due to the fact that the Bible school is so remote, hiring contractors has proven prohibitively expensive. These renovations will also allow  the hostel to continue to operate, which helps keep tuition for the students low, and brings new people in contact with the Bible school.

The 2018 project will be focused on painting the exterior of the building, and future projects will focus on the bathroom renovations.  Please come with us to Hemavan so we can strengthen this outpost for God's Kingdom.
