Rodney W Wicklund has been the pastor at Living Waters for the past 27 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 twenty five Pastor Wicklund had not lived out his salvation. He was sick 180/120 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 having 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 15 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, he began to drink, and this led to serious marriage problems. One evening their daughters were upstairs praying for their parents. He could not sleep and calling the girls downstairs from their time of prayer, Pastor Hojem and his wife Edith renewed their commitment to the Lord in their home praying with their children. God also turned a hopeless financial situation around preserving and restoring their family.

Pastor Minnard Hojem leads a weekly bible study at his home, a monthly meeting of Promise Keepers at the church and monthly outreach to the St Croix County jail. Minnard and Edith, who have been married for fifty five years, still find time to visit their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren spread out over many states.

Mark and Marie continue to pursue the Word of God on relationships. They have had bible studies in their home. They love people and they love family.Mark was a fishing guide for In Fisherman. As the plan of God would have it Pastor Wicklund ended up in Mark's boat with him as his guide.
