Pt 1: What is the Five Fold Ministry?

In Ephesians 4, Paul gives instruction to the churches concerning the unique giftings and callings that Jesus has given to His Body by His grace. But are these “offices” still needed today? Are there modern day apostles, prophet, evangelists, teachers, and shepherds? There been a gross abuse of these offices that have caused many in the church to neglect them entirely. So how can a local church body properly and biblically come in to partnership with Lord to fill these extremely important roles? Listen to SCC Senior Leader Joel Maillet answer these questions and more during our series “Five-Fold Ministry – Christ’s Gifts to the Church”!

In this message:

  • Study of the Five-Fold Ministry structure as outlined in Ephesians 4:7-16.
  • The passage discusses the various roles within the Five-Fold Ministry: Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Shepherds, and Teachers.
  • Jesus is portrayed as embodying all these roles perfectly and imparting them as gifts to believers. There is great need for unity and maturity within the church in order to celebrate and activiate each role in the local church.
