Roger Armbruster, together with his wife Marge, were deeply impacted by the Jesus People Movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s, and subsequently by the Charismatic Renewal shortly thereafter. This movement radically changed the direction of their lives and ministry. Roger began to have a vision to see a similar type of family retreat centre come to Manitoba. The birthing of Rock Lake Ministries occurred in 1979. Today Roger and Marge are still building upon that legacy.

Ken also has a passion for the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and bible prophecy. He believes we are living in the last days and that it's time for the church to rise up and take the gospel to all the world! Pastor Ken has said that "Christians need to know that the time is short, they must take the mandate of the Lord Jesus Christ seriously and go and preach the gospel to all people in the power of the Holy Spirit"
Mike Shreve’s passion is to see New Testament Christianity revealed in the earth: the advance of God's kingdom, the manifestation of His glory and the fulfillment of His promises. Mike and Elizabeth Shreve pastor “The Sanctuary” in Cleveland, Tennessee.
Mike was raised Roman Catholic and was very committed, serving as an altar boy for many years. However, as a teenager, he strayed away from anything religious. Playing keyboard in a rock band definitely contributed to his descent into darkness. Then the pivotal event happened: a near death experience at the age of 18 that awakened him to the seriousness of life and the importance of living for that which has eternal value. An intense spiritual journey began unfolding. Mike dropped out of college to study personally under an Indian guru, devoting himself completely to the practice of yoga and meditation (embracing many ideas out of Hinduism and New Age spirituality--anything that promised an enlightened state of mind).
Through a series of miraculous divine interventions, the darkness of spiritual deception was driven away during an encounter with the One who said, "I am the light of the world": the LORD Jesus Christ. Immediately after this heart-transforming experience, Mike cancelled all of his yoga classes and closed down the ashram, sharing the uniqueness and exclusivity of Jesus with all his former students. Many of them found the Lord Jesus as well.
Desiring to be fully submitted, and fulfill the call to radical discipleship, he and another brother in Christ gave up all their possessions and money to the poor, and began hitchhiking across the United States, preaching the Gospel on college campuses and street corners.
Mike is a published author whose books include, “65 promises from God for your child,” “God’s promises for your journey,” and “25 powerful promises from God.”

Married to Svea Braun, having four beautiful daughters, David Braun travels and teaches about the Father's life and adventure for believers in Christ. David grew up in Manitoba, experiencing God's dynamic power and love in his high school, college and work years. After meeting Svea Peterson in YWAM Colorado, they married in 2002. Over the years, they have been involved in leading a variety of outreaches, both locally and to dozens of nations. David helped found and establish a leadership school, as well as served with Svea as youth and administrative pastors. Presently, David has moved on from pastoral work to start, "All Things New," an initiative with a thrust to see believers established and released in their Christ-identity for the advancement of God's Kingdom in every realm of culture.

Clarence Braun is a lifelong resident of Niverville, Manitoba. He is a husband to Ruth with 4 children and 4 grandchildren. Clarence has been involved in leadership within the church for over 30 years as well as served as the Mayor of Niverville from 1995 – 2002. Presently he is involved in Real Estate with the Clarence Braun / Wes Dowse Team.
After a very difficult personal journey Clarence was restored in 2009. A very specific prophetic word spoken over him reminded him of how loved he was and that God’s purpose for his life had not changed. A broken marriage and family was restored in the ensuing years.
Clarence has a passion to see the body of Christ released through the release of grace gifts. His passion is to see the Kingdom of God fully revealed by the church through the relationships formed by 5 fold leaders who understand the purpose for their call. He has walked through a journey with other leaders at Maranatha who have come to a greater awareness that as we surrender our lives and our gifts to the head of the church, that we will see Jesus truly be the head of the Church. The end result of this will bring a unity to the church that will fulfill Jesus prayer in John 17, that we might all be one.
The purpose of the release of 5 fold grace gifts is the maturing of the saints into every sphere of influence in the world today. Clarence is astutely aware that the grace on people’s lives was not intended to simply build churches and buildings but rather to release people to be the church
