Description
 
This book is the fourth of five volumes in the series Entering into Ministry covering all the ministries we find in the New Testament. It is a continuation of the introductory Volume 3 and gives you a comprehensive description of each of the five-fold ministries – the apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, and teacher.

The apostle is the pioneer and architect with the largest vision and scope for the work of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Besides him the prophet sharpens the direction of the activity of the Body of Christ bringing the prophetic right word at the right time. Together, these two ministries lay the foundation for the church.

The evangelist completes the apostolic work in an area, seeing that everyone is reached with the Gospel. The pastor oversees the local church as the loving shepherd, and the teacher ensures that everyone knows and understands the Word. Together they complete the Great Commission from Jesus Christ to make disciples of all the nations (Matt 28:19).

They are all assigned to ensure that every believer is fully equipped for ministry. As such, they are of vital importance to the strength and growth of any church.
