The Fire of God -summer camp meeting
The worship leaders Joe ja Becky Cruse from USA.

Joe and Becky Cruse have performed on worship albums such as The Sweet Presence of Jesus and Revival Down Under. They have also led worship for Rodney Howard-Browne during the 90s on big venues around the world.

They started their christian music ministry in a band called the Cruse Family Singers. The band was formed in Texas in the year of 1972 together with Cindy Cruse-Ratcliff, who is known to be the current worship leader for Joel Osteen and the Lakewood Church.

After the big arenas and the revival tours of the 90s Joe and Becky Cruse founded together with the family a Worship WORKS ministries. Its purpose is to train and equip worship leaders. They also founded The Cruse Academy of Arts school.

Joe and Becky Cruse have valued their family in ministry related decisions and all of their three adult children are worship pastors in different churches. They have nine grandchildren.

Joe and Becky Cruse as worship leaders have pioneered the worship music scene both in the US and Australia. Their impact started even before the worship leaders of the mega churches.

The Summer camp meetings main speakers Tomi and Sanna Lehto came from the US to Finland in the year of 2011, after graduating from the River Bible Institute in Florida. They served the man of God Rodney Howard-Browne,  Revival Ministries International and the River at Tampa Bay church for over a decade.

They were obedient to the call of God to come to Finland so that every ear would hear the good news of the Gospel. “As Finns born in Finland we understood that the people of today’s world haven’t heard the gospel and how one can be saved”, says Sanna Lehto. “We were convinced that if people will hear it, they will receive it, because it is the most wonderful message ever” .
