Approximately seventy people met on 2 December 2006 in Oslo, Norway to celebrate the official organization of the country's first Church of the Nazarene. Between thirty and fifty people now comprise the Portuguese-speaking congregation, which began as fifteen to twenty people meeting in 2002 at the home of Jorge Rocha, a Cape Verdean bi-vocational pastor. Rocha, who pastored several home churches during the decade he lived in Brazil, was ordained at the Scandinavia District Assembly in May 2006 after fifteen years as a licensed minister. It marked the district's first ordination in fifteen years. (Nazarene Communications Network)
