Dr Les D. Crause (Apostle and Senior Minister)

Les was called to the ministry in his early twenties and was first ordained to the ministry in his late twenties. Since then he has been through many phases of training and experience as the Lord took him through learning to function as Evangelist, Pastor, Teacher, Prophet, and then finally at the Apostolic level.

With his original mandate from the Lord to raise up expert training for the Fivefold Ministry, Les produced materials through preaching on camera on many different topics, especially for the Prophetic and Apostolic ministries. Then together with Daphne, he set in place training schools in South Africa for these ministries.

Once this mandate was complete, he handed over the training mandate to his spiritual daughter Apostle Nadine Stohler, who was qualified to take the reins. And the Lord said that it was time to now build the new church based on the correct pattern that has been revealed.

GBM Fellowship is the first local church in which this pattern will be used, as it is built from the ground up, here in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Daphne Crause (Apostle and Senior Minister)

Daphne Crause

Daphne Crause is the wife of Les, and stands by his side as a co-worker in this ministry, which they founded together.

With many years of experience as a Secretary, Daphne has had exposure to many different business environments, including the mining and medical industries. She is adept at editing, formatting, and preparing books and products for publication. And with her knowledge of business, she is able to stand in her own right as a Female Entrepreneur.

Daphne’s forte in ministry is teaching the subject of Prayer and Intercession, which was her passion as a spiritual parent. Now she is reaching even further to teach other basic subjects to believers.

Les and Daphne plan to provide a new model for husbands and wives to work together as a team, both in business and ministry.

John Crause (Assistant Minister and Business Manager)

John Crause

John is Les’s fourth child, and only son. He is the son of Les and Daphne, and is learning to pour out to others all that his father and mother have poured into him.

Trained in both ministry and business, John holds a unique position for someone his age. He is also unique in that he has never had a formal education and has not spent a single day of his life in a formal school setting.

When Les and Daphne arrived in Mexico there was no school that offered lessons in English, and at that time there were no finances to pay for schooling anyway. So John became a prototype of a new generation. He is proof that a child can be raised without being contaminated by the world system and yet rise up in knowledge beyond his peers.

John has single-handedly carried the burden of the entire production of resources, first for the ministry division, and now for the business division. Every book, DVD and other tangible product sold has passed first through his hands.

He has a good Teaching ministry, flows well Prophetically, functions as a manager and is currently in training for higher leadership. He has picked up much of his father’s anointing and is progressively rising up to take his place as a leader in the Kingdom of God.

GBM Fellowship Branches

Ernst and Sonja Haenni (Apostles and Senior Pastors, Switzerland)

Ernst And Sonja Haenni

Ernst was part of Les and Daphne’s original Spiritual Family under Global Ministry Resources International.

When Les and Daphne were led to add the Business Mandate to their ministry function, Ernst and his wife Sonja were amongst those of the original family who joined them in this new mandate. They are now an integral part of the leadership of GBMI internationally.

Ernst has been a mentor to many who later rose up to become leaders in the Body of Christ. He has a passion to see the Church rise up in power, and has paid the price many times, by letting go of his own desires, that the Kingdom of God may go forward.

Sonja is a valuable part of the leadership of GBMI, and carries a load in the Spirit as she covers us in intercession and decree.

She is a strong leader in her own right, with a good teaching ministry. She is also excellent with children, having homeschooled her three daughters, including Anna-Lena, who has now joined us as a staff member in HQ.

Working side by side with her husband, she is reaching out to her community in Switzerland. She has a passion for souls and is always open to presenting the Gospel and leading folks to the Lord.

She also has a strong Business Calling and along with Ernst is a valuable part of the financial administration of GBMI.
