Evangelist Forced to Flee Denmark: 'This Is Going to Come to America'

Torben Søndergaard and his family fled Denmark for America this year like refugees fleeing a war zone, leaving with only what they could carry in eight suitcases.

Torben is the founder of The Last Reformation, a worldwide movement that seeks to return Christianity to the book of Acts. He also began the Jesus Center in Denmark, which trained disciples from 30 nations to spread this message around the world.

A Series of Attacks Against Him

Attacks against his ministry in Denmark began in 2016 when the Jesus Center was investigated by six different Danish government agencies for everything from food safety to unpaid taxes. Officials found nothing wrong.

Then last year, the government began to investigate their family when they began home-schooling. Then they put their daughter back into public school, but that didn't stop the investigations.

But the worst was yet to come. Torben Søndergaard's life and ministry would take a dramatic turn when Danish TV approached him and said it wanted to profile his ministry. It sounded like it could be very positive. It wasn't.

Danish TV Investigates Him

Danish TV not only sent a film crew. Torben says it also sent two undercover reporters, one who said that he wanted to follow Jesus and was even baptized, and another who pretended to be mentally ill.
