AM250, THE WORK OF APOSTLES AND APOSTOLIC COMPANIES IN THE TWENTYFIRST CENTURY

This wonderful old painting depicts the miraculous catch of fish after our Lord's resurrection. Apostles and fivefold ministers are called to work with Jesus in building and repairing His great fishing net made-up of churches joined together through apostles and elders to form His one Church in the earth, the instrument of His Kingdom purpose to harvest the nations. Jesus is seen in the back of the boat as Lord of the harvest.

AM250, has started and is now open for enrollment without charge! 

Written and taught online by Dr. George Kouri, Chancellor of ATS, AM250 is a comprehensive study of the calling and work of apostles and apostolic companies as established and demonstrated by Jesus Christ the Chief Apostle and the twelve who served with Him as members of His pattern apostolic company, by Peter and the eleven apostles of the Lamb, and last but not least by Paul, the arch-type of all ascension-gift apostles, and his company and preserved for us today in the Canon of the New Testament. Careful attention will be given to Scriptural definitions, Christ’s mandates and instructions, apostolic models and strategies, and an evaluation of the work of apostolic ministry over the last 2000 years with special application to the current apostolic movement. Chatroom discussions began November 6 and will be hosted by Dr. Kouri every Thursday morning at 10 AM Eastern Standard Time.

The word "apostle" is the single hottest word in theological circles today, and the restoration of "apostolic ministry" is the thrust of one of today's major movements in the body of Christ. The goal of AM250 is to understand and rediscover the role of apostles and apostolic companies for the 21st Century and is essential for any minister of Christ who wants to understand the work of Messiah's Kingdom and serve His Kingdom purpose in this generation.

Dr. C. Peter Wagner, who for many years taught missions and Church growth at Fuller Theological Seminary, is one of the leading advocates for the need for the restoration of apostles today and for a new apostolic reformation. In May of 1996 Dr. Wagner convened The National Symposium on the Post-Denominational Church at Fuller Seminary; the consensus of the panelists was that there are still apostles and prophets in the Church, and that there is an emerging Apostolic Movement that will revolutionize the 21st-century Church. In his forward to Dr. Bill Hamon’s, Apostles, Prophets, And The Coming Moves of God, Wagner writes, “the fastest growing cutting edge of worldwide Christianity in our times is what I like to call the New Apostolic Reformation, previously referred to by some as independent churches or nondenominational churches or post denominational churches or grass roots churches or other kinds of names.”
