This book is the third in five volumes in the series Entering into Ministry covering all the ministries we find in the New Testament. It introduces you to the five-fold ministries – apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, and teacher.

Section one gives an overview of the development of the five-fold ministries in an historic and prophetic context, looking into the tradition and history of the universal Christian church – focusing on the period from the Reformation to the Pentecostal Movement. Then follows a description of the parallel history of the establishment and development of the modern nation of Israel with the noticeable restoration and growth of the offices of the five-fold ministries – the most clearly evident being the evangelist, teacher, and pastor.

Section two is an introduction to these ministries in general, their basic classification, proper context, and the apostle Paul’s main outline of their purpose in Eph 4: 12-16. Finally, it portrays the main characteristics and highlights the necessary qualifications and ethical quality that should be expected for this level of ministry.

Each of the five ministries will be dealt with in detail in the next volume.
