About the 5-Fold
The topic of the 5-Fold
ministry has been largely ignored in evangelical
circles, subjected to the main stream of few
denominations, or sadly, in some cases, abused.
The class is intended to give insight to the 5-fold
ministries as they relate to the church, expressing the
fullness of Christ, and giving personal significance to
everyone in it.
- This class is not an exhaustive study on the 5-Fold
gifts, but a beginning.
- It is not based in an overly intellectual view of the
text in Ephesians, but more of a practical application
of the Scriptures.
- It is not a movement, or a reorganization of the
church, but a recognition of God given gifts.
- Its purpose is to be but a stepping stone to a deeper
revelation of the roles of the apostle, the prophet, the
teacher, the evangelist and the pastor.
It is my hope that you will be empowered to do greater
things for God, while allowing those around you to
support your weaknesses with complimentary giftings, as
you work together for the cause of Christ.
