The fivefold ministry has been a mystery that is only being resurrected in the Church today.
We see people rising up with the different callings, and we see how God brings these different individuals together and calls them to set the Church afire. But, what are the fivefold offices exactly, and where do you fit in?
Not to worry, God has already prepared a place for you. He started preparing it the moment you were conceived. Did you think all the trials you have gone through, and the life you have lived, was just a twist of fate? I assure you this is not the case. God has been shaping your character all your life so that He can bring you into the fullness of your calling.
He has chosen you and has given you a role to lead His people out Egypt, but you cannot do that unless you understand what kind of leader you are, or which people you are supposed to be leading.
There are five different offices, and each one is unique and very specific. In the pages of this book, Colette Toach lays out the clear structure, foundation, and origin of the fivefold offices that will help you to discover your place.
Are you an apostle, prophet, teacher, pastor, or evangelist? Are you called to walk the social, business, or ministry road? It is time to reveal the road ahead of you, and to rise up into the fullness of your call. Where you are now is great, but God has so much more in store for you than you realize. It is time to take hold of the reality of your call to the fivefold offices.
