Administrative history

Finding its roots in Norway's Revival Movement, the Lutheran Free Church began its work in Canada in 1895. Spearheaded by Reverend Christian Sangstad and eighty Norwegians from Minnesota, the Ausburg congregation was established in Bella Coola, British Columbia. From British Columbia, the Lutheran Free Church spread to the prairie provinces at the beginning of the twentieth century. The Lutheran Free Church merged with the American Lutheran Church in 1963, which would eventually lead to the formation of the autonomous Evangelical Lutheran Church of Canada in 1967.
