About Us

Our vision is to enlighten, equip and empower people in this generation. We strive to help others to healthy and meaningful lives.

God’s Message to

every Soul

Empower Missions is run on a voluntary basis, with the aim to bring God’s Message to every soul. We accomplish this through teaching, preaching and healing – the Mission of Christ.

Through the years different people have been involved in Empower Missions. Today Christian and his wife Susan are running the ministry together. They are currently based in Sweden.

You can join us in this work through your prayers and love offerings.

Story & Purpose

Empower Missions started in 2014 when Christian was a Bible Worker. He wanted a website where he could share his sermons and perhaps other resources. This was just the beginning of a growing ministry…

In the fall of 2014 he came to Spain with the aim to serve in this country. The plan was to have a small business on the side to generate some income, so that he could do as much as possible. But God had another plan. God impressed strongly on his mind to prioritize the ministry.
“As long as you take care of me, I will prioritize the ministry, and you need to give me opportunities to serve…”
Very soon after this prayer he got busier than ever before with many speaking engagements, and for many years he was serving full time, relying fully on God.

Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people—  saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.”

And another angel followed, saying, “Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.”

Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image,

and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.  And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”

Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.

– Revelation 14:6-12

Our Beliefs & Values

Simply put, we believe…

  • …that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation.
  • …that Jesus died on the cross to save us from our sins.
  • …in His commandments, that reveal to us the loving character of God.
  • …that Jesus is coming again very soon, to bring all those who have fully surrendered their lives to Him, to a wonderful place where we will dwell together for eternity.

Because of this, we feel that it is urgent to bring God’s Message of hope, to every soul!

Susan Hjortland

Susan grew up in Peru and lived an ordinary life, when God turned her life upside-down. Through her own studies in the Bible, God revealed many precious truths to her. Now she is excited to share what she has learned with others. Susan studied at Menorah Mission School, and got much more equipped as a disciple of Jesus.

“I am pleased to recommend support for the new Ministry in Europe of Christian and Joakim Hjortland, Empower Missions.

I first met and got to know Christian as a dedicated Adventist when he attended the AFCOE program of Amazing Facts in California in late 2010. Both Christian and his brother Joakim are instructors at AFCOE-Europe, and have recently established Empower Missions in Europe which seeks to empower, equip and help individuals as well as churches to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through practical training, lectures, and media. Empower Missions is active around Europe and is dedicated to Adventist beliefs and values…We at Amazing Facts will be praying that the ministry of these young Adventist evangelists will rekindle the spirit of revival and reformation so necessary today.”

Doug Batchelor

President, Amazing Facts

“I have been working with both Christian and Joakim and it has been inspiring for me as a pastor. In spite of their young years, they have already gathered much valuable experience. Many churches can definitely be blessed by their energy and vision for the church in the end times. Both are gifted persons, but the best thing is that they would like to use their talents for the glory of God.”
Bengt Fjellberg

Pastor, Norway

“I got to know Joakim and Christian during youth conferences and IMPACT mission trips. I do appreciate their love for Jesus and their commitment to the mission of the Seventh-day Adventist church. Their zeal for Jesus and his commission is truly inspiring and motivating. I really liked getting to know them and am very happy for their ministry.”and thank you for being apart of this effort.”
