Ray and Leslie are both ordained and licensed Ministers. They live in Carberry, Manitoba and are blessed with two adult children. Ray has been a minister of the gospel for more than 25 years. He and his wife co-founded Resurrection Life Ministries Canada and International, and Intercessors of Issachar. Ray is a member of Christian Ministers Association of Canada as well as Founder and president of the R.I.T.E. Team Ltd.
With “worship as a lifestyle” focus Ray brings the power of the Presence of God into any setting he enters whether inside a church or outside in the day to day realm. He is a man of vision with the eye of a seer, the apostle and prophet anointing that penetrates the darkness like an arrow and changes the atmosphere.
Ray has travelled to many foreign nations; building relationships with key local people who in turn take the Spirit and Word to others in their nation and other nations with the result that Kingdom building grows exponentially even when Ray has left the nation. He is known as “Bishop” to many in these nations and a “Father” who grows “sons and daughters” as the Spirit of the Lord is released among them.
Leslie is a retired registered nurse and as such has cared for the whole person as well as the staff placed in her care as she led various care teams over the years. She is also a member of Christian Ministers Association of Canada.
In the realm of ministering or caring for people Leslie has a heart for issues of the heart to assist in bringing those who are broken and hurting into a place of healing and wholeness by the power and anointing Presence of the Spirit of the living God. She is a woman with the authority of a prophet anointing as well as apostolic anointing which complements the gifts of her husband. Leslie is a woman of prayer, a prophetic intercessor as well as a prayer warrior who “loves well” which is to say that the love for the Lord and of the Lord is transmitted to others around her.
Leslie’s desire for others is that they would come closer to Jesus, “to know Him and the power of His Resurrection” (Phil.3:10), to love Jesus even more and to know they are loved by the Father.
