6 TEAM PRIORITIES

Apostolic (fivefold, Ephesians 4) teams have a heart and responsibility to create a movement of healthy, growing and missional churches, not simply sustain and support existing churches with their existing members.

We use a simple arrow graphic to teach these points, highlighting that extension and impartation of the supernatural should be at the leading edge of the mission.

As we read the NT descriptions of apostolic teams, we see a number of important things that they did. We see this as a pattern for our Salt & Light apostolic teams today:

Extension

  • Continually stimulating the call to mission
  • Leading in breakthrough and preaching the Gospel in new settings
  • Supporting churches with training in mission

Problem Solving

  • Supporting churches through problems
  • Guarding against false teaching
  • Regular engagement, not just crisis management

Foundation Laying

  • Establishing people together in Christ as communities
  • Ensuring Biblical vision, doctrine and practice
  • Considering what is in place and attending to lacks
  • Advising on development

Leadership Training And Appointment

  • Helping identify and appointing elders
  • Helping identify and train future leaders

Supernatural Impartation

  • Ensuring churches experience a Spirit-filled life
  • Imparting the power of God

Promoting Unity

  • Building family and resolving broken relationships within churches
  • Promoting a concern for the wider church and its leaders
