Apostolic Reform - A Fresh Look at the 5-Fold Ministries

The 5-Fold School of Ministry is basically a reflection of the text contained in the book, Apostolic Reform.

Here are a couple of acknowledgments. You may download a copy of the book by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.

They say a picture paints a thousand words; likewise, without using many words, this work by David details the 5-Fold ministry gifts of the church, and lays a foundation for a much needed discussion concerning Apostolic reform. Projecting a vision which honors the gifts God has placed in others, and activating them in the framework of a relational team, reinforces the supernatural origins of the 5-Fold.

History reveals that "small unknowns" have both challenged and defeated giants. While this mini-book may look small, it contains revelation of a topic which can topple non-relational, institutionalized religion, which has held relational power infused Christianity captive for centuries. As my dad, who being small in stature says, "I may look small in size, but I am a big man inside", likewise this book contains greatness.


My hope is that church leadership will catch the heart of this work, embrace its contents, and begin a much needed discussion towards change.

David is part of a emerging generation of Equippers. Apostolic Reform takes a look at the 5-fold ministry with fresh eyes. The book opens the conversation about the importance for New Testament churches and leadership models. This book is a good introduction to the reformation happening in the Ecclesia at this hour. The focus of the book is the Body being equipped and coming forth to fulfill her destiny.


I recommend that all believers read this book at allow it to challenge you toward a fuller understanding of Apostolic Reformation and Kingdom living.

Welcome


The 5-Fold School of Ministry is the culmination of the shared vision, and a heart for the Kingdom of God as it is expressed at Faith Worship Center. The Schools of Ministry are informative, exciting, Spirit-led and dynamic times of training, hands-on participation and impartation.

The ministry school staff is comprised of elders and teachers from Faith Worship Center, as well as quality para-church and visiting ministers from a variety of different backgrounds. The goal of the Schools of Ministry is to bring quality training to participants through a variety of methods including classes, seminars, workshops and web broadcasts.

Classes are held at Faith Worship Center, 2 Lomar Park, Pepperell, MA 01436. Each session focuses on a different aspect of the 5-fold ministries described by the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 4.

Ephesians 4:11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. NIV



Each module is customized by the individual minister/teacher, however; all focus on solid biblical teaching, practical application, and the interaction of the Holy Spirit. Some include training and equipping in the broader list of spiritual gifts outlined in 1 Corinthians 12.

The next scheduled school is: 5-Fold School of Ministry Jan 13 - Feb 17, 2012


Classes will examine the biblical role of each ministry (Ascension Gift) that Christ has bestowed upon the church to give it form and expression. Biblical teaching, discussion time, and hands-on participation are the basic formula for each session. Meetings will offer a time of activation and impartation as we explore your God given gifting.
