The Five-Fold Ministry
It was he who “gave gifts to people”; he appointed some to be apostles, others to be prophets, others to be evangelists, others to be pastors and teachers. He did this to prepare all God’s people for the work of Christian service, in order to build up the body of Christ. And so we shall all come together to that oneness in our faith and in our knowledge of the Son of God; we shall become mature people, reaching to the very height of Christ’s full stature.
We believe that each person has been anointed to serve Christ, the church and the world by means of one of these ‘ministry approaches’
this doesn’t mean that all who have the ministry of ‘Teacher’ will be preachers at the front of the church, or that all ‘Apostles’ will be off setting up new churches.
Discovery of how your ministry emphasis will express itself is part of the fun of the journey…..
