Does the Church Still Need Apostles and Prophets? is a book that examines the original New Testament design of the fivefold ministry of leadership in the church. It asks the question, Was the single pastorate the design of the Lord, or was it the result of our own choosing? This book intends to give the reader a look at the great foundation of the apostle and prophet in the scriptures and tackles the very difficult question of whether these giftings passed away with the first-generation church. This book examines in detail the scriptural ministries of the apostle and the prophet and why these giftings are just as valid today as they were in the first-century church. The total restoration of the plural team ministry that the book of Acts describes and the New Testament confirms will once again help the church to maintain its focus on discipleship and mission. After thirty years of functioning with fivefold leadership teams, the author shares this teaching and illustrates it with real-life examples of the transformation that happened in his own church.
