Understanding the five-fold ministry and how these five leadership gifts work together. The ministry gifts are alive and well today! When Jesus ascended to heaven He left gifts behind. Apostles, Prophets, Evangelist, Pastors and Teachers. But their operation has often been surrounded by neglect and-confusion and outright controversy. 1) APOSTLES---- GOVERN--Called and sent by God to have Spiritual Authority, Character, Gifts and the ability to reach and establish people in kingdom truth and order. Especially through founding and overseeing local churches. They have the burden to build what didn't exist before, laying the foundation of new churches and see to it that it comes into full maturity. It isn't just a title it is Work ...Apostolic WORK---- PROPHETS------GUIDE----Who represents the interest of God to the people having stood in the council of God, the Prophets releases a clarion call to the people of what is in God's heart at the moment. Giving revelation, interpretation, application, timing, and fore-telling, to individuals and to the body of Christ. Many people live in fear of Prophets- feeling threatened by what they will say to the church or to the leaders themselves. God has established prophets in His church and we will not be complete if we reject their ministry out of Fear----EVANGELIST---GATHERS---Carries a great burden for those who are not part of the Kingdom of God. Anointed to preach the gospel to them that comes with great conviction and draws them to the Lord. They will often have signs and wonders following them to confirm their message, and they are absolutely crucial for numeric growth in the local church and the Kingdom of God---PASTORS----GUARD---Heart of the church, the Shepherd who deeply cares for the sheep----ready to lie down everything for them. They want them to be fed, to grow, to be equipped, to develop  their gifts and step into the calling of God for themselves----- They are the bridge between - the different offices and functions - listening to all sides and restoring calm order when necessary.--- TEACHERS----GROUND---Teachers teach and edify the church, imparting divine life and anointing to their listeners who become more hungry for the Word of God. Teachers reveal the specifics of  truth. While prophets reveal the heart of God, teachers reveal His mind of God. Prophets and teachers balance each other in the church, Teachers are essential in the body of Christ, to give the sheep a good foundation of the word of God- something many charismatic churches seem to lack today. To many charismatic churches today focus on the Spirit that they neglect the Scriptures

This was an awesome read Mother. It brings clarity, reveals function, & shows how all were designed to work together to build and expand the Kingdom of God in the earth.
I'm a Ruby alumni and presence students, LET'S DO THIS!!!!!

Amen!!!! It is our time right! Nana I now know how to function in my gift. And I have a lot of work to do bring these lost souls into God's loving, caring, kind, and warm embrace. So that they know they are loved. They know they are no longer lost, bound, nor do they have to be scared. I am ready to team up with my fellow pastors, apostles, prophets, evangelists, and teachers to get down and dirty into the nitty gritty for the Kingdom of God. It would do justice to God to see his sons and daughters cleaning up the mess the Devil made and stomping on his head with some good old fashion Kingdom Bangin in the streets. I'm Ready Let's Fly Eagles!!!!!!

The great gifts that Christ gave to the church at his ascension was that of the ministry of peace and reconciliation, the gift of ministry is the fruits of Christ ascension. The offices that Christ gave to his church were two sorts extraordinary ones such as apostles, prophets, and evangelist, the apostles were chief having been the witness of his miracles and doctrine he sent them forth to spread the gospel. The prophets seem to have been such as expounded the written of old testament. The evangelist were ordained persons with whom the apostles too for their companions to travel with.

The ordinary ministers were the pastors and the teachers, pastors responsibilities were to assume spiritual warfare for the group of believers. Teachers communicated information about the bible to the group of believers in order to maintain a healthy ministry. These gifts are suppose to work together for the good of the saints to build up the body of Christ.

Mother, this was a powerful teaching especial about the evangelist.  This brought Isaiah 61 to mind.

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.

And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.

And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.

But ye shall be named the Priests of the Lord: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.

For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.

For I the Lord love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.

And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the Lord hath blessed.

10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.

11 For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

  

So we know that God gave  us these 5 Gifts. He gave us these gifts so that we might be well equipped to help his Sheep.

1 Corinthians 12:28 - And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with the gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues.

My God! Mother Shirley we praise God for your gift to teach. Your wisdom, your care. It is definitely evident why you are called MOTHER and it has nothing to do with age, but everything to do with spiritual maturity. You are a comforter and your light shines brightly. To those who are motherless you are a Mother indeed! I praise God for you!

Blessings and Increase!

I didnt realize how important the 5 fold ministry until I heard the word on Tuesday. I never realized that the pastor was trying to everything and thats a hard job. Im really excited to be a part of the 5 fold ministry.

Mother thank you for helping me in understanding the 5 fold ministry and its importance. This has been neglected and is no longer being taught and or utilized in its fullness to bring the church back to how it should me. With me now knowing this it will help in where God places me. 

This is teaching on the understanding of the five-fold ministry is so enlightening. Truly understanding how the different leadership gifts operates is essential to having an effective ministry. There is great challenges  today with the church regarding the importance of the function of the five-fold ministries that we read about in Ephesians 4 :11 “apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers.” We give mental assent to these offices, but we do not seem to realize the importance of recognizing them – a recognition that makes room for them to develop, to become established, to be able to grow, and to impact the Christians and unbelievers alike. I believe the reason for the challenge is due to the lack of understanding some cases, and before some will recognize such important gifts,they need to have some understanding on what they are – and what their function is. Until we do, we will not be able to make room for them to function like they should. I believe you have truly brought clarity to the difference offices and the gifts in your post response.

Many that refusing to see the importance of their gifts from God to the Church really need to recognize it and understand the essential part they play in equipping the body of Christ. Once they do recognize the importance of these essential ministries, we will then look for ways and means to bring them to the fore, so the benefits can be received by all believers in Jesus Christ. Blessing to you Mother Shirley, I really enjoyed your post.
