Lorens was born in Stockholm in 1980. When he was a child he moved to Italy with his parents, both former missionaries of “Christ is the Answer.” He graduated in Electronic Engineering, from the Polytechnic University of Turin and has worked in the Aerospace field as an Avionics System Engineer. Beside engineering, he is also passionate about music, art and poetry.
His interest in the Christian faith began in his teenage years, leading him to accept Christ as his personal Lord and Saviour at the age of 18. Since then, his first priority has been to grow in his knowledge of the Bible and serve God in a practical way, especially through evangelism and mission. He discovered GBU at the end of his university career but has been involved with it since then, benefitting from biblical training and the many friendships made. His desire is to now give something back by serving GBU on a local and national level.
Lorens attends an AG church in Turin and, as well as GBU, is involved with other missionary organizations such as Operation World Italia and The Gideons International.
