Hi, my name is Maicon Steuernagel and I am the pastor of Oslo International Church. My wife and I came to Norway in the autumn of 2010. We are both from Brazil and came as missionaries through the Brazilian missionary organization, Missão Zero, and the Norwegian Missionary Society (NMS). We became involved with OiC from the very beginning of our time here, and I have been the pastor since autumn 2011.
I have studied Theology and Social Anthropology and share my time between OiC and NMS. My wife, Carolina, is finishing her PhD. We love cooking and sharing life around a good meal, and love the wonderful multiplicity of fantastic people that is OiC!
Our sons Oliver and Benjamin were both born in Oslo and are deciphering how to be Brazilian in Norway as they speak Norwegian at school, English at church and Portuguese with family. We enjoy baking, swimming, and biking with them and are excited to see them grow up in this multicultural environment.
