The Norwegian Christian Student and School Association (Norwegian: Norges Kristelige Student- og Skoleungdomslag or NKSS), is a Christian youth organization in Norway. Members refer to NKSS as "The team" (Norwegian: Laget).[1]

NKSS was founded in 1924 by Lutheran theologians Carl Fredrik Wisløff and Ole Hallesby. It works in schools and universities to make Jesus known to students. There are around 150 registered groups, in secondary, high school, and universities. NKSS is affiliated with International Fellowship of Evangelical Students, a worldwide Christian organization which works with students around the Globe. [2] [3] [4]
