By 1995, Leif and Jennifer were pastoring First Baptist Church in Sandnes, Norway. Burned out and frustrated, Leif attended a small pastors meeting in the city of Haugesund where a man named Randy Clark was ministering.

As an adult, this passion was rekindled at John Wimber’s “Signs and Wonders” conference in the mid 1980’s and later by the Brownsville and Toronto Revivals. Tom met Randy Clark in 1999 and this was the beginning of a God-ordained friendship. He began traveling with and for Randy the following year, bringing his church members along to encounter the supernatural with them. In 2003, while traveling with Global Awakening, Tom had an encounter with the Holy Spirit that changed the course of his life forever.
Randy regularly ministered in Tom’s church, declaring it 1 of 4 churches in the world that received and maintained a corporate healing anointing.
