Lawrence Chovanec is the founder and Senior Leader of SPOKEN WORD FELLOWSHIP. He is an anointed revelatory teacher, able to reach a broad audience with his unique gifts. Pastor Lawrence and his wife Jaye Jaye often flow together in prophetic and healing ministry, demonstrating the Father's heart of compassion and seeing lives transformed by the power of God. For nearly 30 years, they have been nurturing people into their destiny in Christ, developing transformational Kingdom leaders.
Together they have a call to facilitate unity within the regional Church, believing Wisconsin and the Midwest are destined to impact the nations with the Glory of God as we become One in Christ! Both are ordained and commissioned under Jeff Jansen - Global Fire Ministries Int'l. Lawrence holds a Bachelor's, and Jaye Jaye a Master's degree, from the University of Wisconsin. Both have worked multiple decades as professionals in the marketplace. The Chovanecs reside in Grafton, Wisconsin, a north shore suburb of Milwaukee.
Carl and Lisa Spangenberg have been leading the body of Christ in worship in southeastern Wisconsin since 1991. They have been worship leaders at SPOKEN WORD FELLOWSHIP since 2009. Their greatest desire is to see the Body of Christ united in the Holy Spirit and exalting Jesus the Lord as their Head. Carl and Lisa bring fresh, dynamic worship to the body of Christ. While their ministry has touched nearly every musical hue and style found in the worship spectrum, it has consistently been rooted in a strong prophetic element God has given them to open doors of revelation (Deut. 29:29).
Family worship is important to the Spangenbergs, and their daughter, Holly, often joins her parents on the violin, which God called Holly to play following a powerful encounter at age 5. Holly was concertmaster of Milwaukee’s Youth Orchestra, and soloed with the professional Milwaukee Symphony in 2013 after winning their annual Young Artist Competition. She is continuing her violin studies at the Eastman School of Music (Rochester, New York).
The Spangenbergs uphold the whole counsel of the Word of God, look for the return of Christ, occupy until He comes, worship Him with passion and zeal, and invite God to supernaturally manifest His heavenly glory on earth. The Spangenbergs reside just north of Milwaukee in Thiensville, Wisconsin.
