Apostolic Teams

Grey Zone, Unsure, or Offkey Apostolic Teams

A concept promoted by Grace Ministries, a department of Kansas City Fellowship. These teams are supposed to establish and oversee City Churches.

An apostolic team of ministries joined by the Holy Spirit to plant churches. This team is comprised of mature and proven men with apostolic and prophetic ministries in additional to including evangelists, pastors and teachers. These teams will necessarily have support ministries traveling with them as well. An apostolic team is lead by one with a proven apostolic ministry evidenced by successful church planting endeavors with abundant signs and wonders (2 Cor. 12:12). An apostolic team is the ideal pattern in the New Testament for the oversight and development of churches and various trans-local ministries.
Michael Sullivan, "What Is Grace Ministries?" Grace City Report, Kansas City Fellowship, 1990. p. 9

NOTE: Keyed grey because while the concept of City Churches may itself be Biblical, it is alarming to see it promoted largely by churches, ministries and leaders deeply involved in some of the controversial renewal and revival movements. Given the decidedly un-Scriptural teachings and practices of those who currently promote each other as apostles and prophets (e.g. Rick Joyner, Paul Cain, Bob Jones, Mike Bickle, etc.), no congregation should place itself under the leadership of such Apostolic Teams.
