Chapter 2: The Five-Fold Ministry Gifts
The greek means "one sent forth". Translated in the King James New Testament:
TYPE OF WORK:
Think of Paul's work as an example to the following:
"work" is not in buildings, organizations, or number of people, but is
in the spirit of men. Therefore, we do not judge by appearance,
but by the heart (spirit). Also, an organization could cease to
exist, and great fruit still remain from its work.
- establishes new churches or works, a founder (1 Cor 3:10, Eph 2:20).
- strengthens existing works, particularly ones they established.
and encourages individuals (particularly other five-fold ministers),
mentors them, and facilitates them in accomplishing their god-given
COMBINATION OF GIFTINGS:
Most likely gifts active in this office:
Motivational: Organization (ruling). Needed to establish works.
Could move in any or all five as needed by God for new works.
Charismatic: Power gifts (faith, miracles, gifts of healings)
(1 Cor 2:4-5, 1 Cor 4:18-20, 2 Tim 1:7
apostolic office is the only one I have noted that men can grow
into. That does not mean that ministers do not grow in ability in
their offices. I mean, that normally, God takes a man through other
offices first before making him an apostle.
had at least 70 disciples with him for sometime. Then he prayed
all night to find God's will for who the twelve apostles would be (Luke 6:12-13).
- Paul and Barnabas were prophets and teachers before moving into the office of an apostle (Acts 13:1-5)
there were in the church that was at Antioch certain prophets and
teachers; as Barnabas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Lucius of
Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch,
and Saul. As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost
said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have
called them. And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands
on them, they sent them away. So they, being sent forth by the Holy
Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.
And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of God in the
synagogues of the Jews: and they had also John to their minister.
