about us


Rodney W Wicklund has been the pastor at Living Waters for the past 28 years. Pastor Wicklund was saved at the age of twelve at a Covenant Church Lake Beauty Bible Camp in Long Prairie Minnesota. At the age of 25 Pastor Rod had not lived out his salvation. He was sick 180/120 high blood pressure. It was at this time that he called upon the name of the Lord in a healing service and was healed of the sickness and filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. He began to attend Living Word Christian Center in Brooklyn Park Minnesota where he was later licensed and ordained as a pastor.

Pastor Wicklund had a praying Grandmother Agnes Wicklund of Lund Wisconsin. Agnes was a woman of prayer and wrote many psalms. Pastor Wicklund attributes his current position to God answering the prayers of his Grandmother.

Pastor Minnard Hojem has been the associate pastor at Living Waters for the past 25 years. Pastor Hojem and his wife Edith were active in church and took their six children to church and Sunday school. After going into the insurance business, pressures of life and circumstances led to serious marriage problems. One evening their daughters were upstairs praying for them. He could not sleep and calling the girls downstairs from a time of prayer, Pastor Minnard and his wife Edith renewed their commitment to the Lord in their home and repented before God. God also turned their hopeless financial situation around preserving and restoring their family.

Pastor Minnard Hojem leads a weekly bible study at his home, a monthly meeting of men in the church and works with Chris Jensen coordinating the St Croix County jail ministry. Pastor Minnard loves visits from his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. His family is spread out over many states.
