AD300 Recovering The Keys Of The Kingdom, The Biblical Requirements For An Apostolic Reformation It is foolish to speak of an Apostolic Reformation without recovering the keys of the Messianic Kingdom given by Jesus to the original apostles. AD300 is a study of the keys, the special revelation given to David, the prophets of Israel, the apostles of the Lamb, and first ascension-gift apostles concerning Messiah's's Kingdom, His Church, the Church's governmental structure, and the Church's mission and destiny in history.

 AD401  An Architectural Blueprint For The Apostolic Church

If you are truly called as an apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor or teacher in the 21st century and interested in being part of a true apostolic reformation, and if you are seeking to move from an independent "local church" paradigm to a truly Kingdom paradigm of Holy Nation and from the paradigm of independent senior pastors to a truly apostolic paradigm of apostles and elders (i.e. ruling pastors) working together as part of apostolic company in the fellowship of the apostles, then you need to enroll in AD401-Architectural Blueprint For One Apostolic Church.

In the present economy or administration of Messiah's Kingdom, apostles have a number of strategically important roles or functions. One such critically important function is that of "master builder" or architect. As the Lord Jesus is presently in the process of reviving His work in the earth, restoring the foundations of His Kingdom and reforming His Church to function as the Holy Nation (i.e. One, Holy, Apostolic Church in the world), it is critically important for all of us who are involved in the present apostolic reformation to rediscover and fully understand the true nature, governmental structure and architectural blueprint for the Church that King Jesus is building.

The Church Jesus is building is the instrument or body of His Kingdom purpose to disciple cities and nations and fill the earth with the glory of God. It is also a demonstration of Messiah's kingdom, a demonstration of life under the government of King Jesus. Because of this fact the Lord's Church must be properly structured and governed. The King's Church must be One Church, made up of many thousands and thousands of allotments, congregations, or what we call today "local churches" connected or joined together by apostles and elders who are connected or joined to each other in the fellowship or communion of the apostles. The members and congregations that make up the Lord's Church must be joined or connected doctrinally, spiritually, and structurally in such a way that it can function as one Holy Apostolic Church in the world (i.e. in cities, nations, and globally).

Sadly, many so-called "apostolic movements" are merely new "church planting" movements, seeking to plant more of the thing that we already have too much of, disconnected or independent local churches.

Today it is not enough to plant more denominational or independent local churches led by independent local pastors or even to build large multimedia churches with multiple media campuses, churches where the people watch videos, but never connect with the pastor for spiritual fatherhood or with one another for true spiritual family and covenant community. Instead, apostles and fivefold ministries must work together to plant the church of the locality  (i.e. a city or region) made up of multiple allotments or congregations joined together by apostles and elders (i.e. the ruling pastors) to form the church in a locality or a city, a region, a nation, and globally.

In his comprehensive and detailed course Apostle George Kouri very carefully and systematically unveils the revelation of Messiah's Kingdom and His One Holy Apostolic Church. He deals with the Church's faith, the Church's nature, the Church's structure and governmental order, and its apostolic mission or mandate. In this critically important course Apostle Kouri unveils the revelation that Jesus Himself originally entrusted to the apostles of the Lamb and the first ascension-gift apostles. Then building squarely upon the architectural blueprint or pattern set forth in the Canon of the New Testament and drawing upon a half century of Biblical and Theological study and ministerial experience, Brother Kouri presents the implications of Lord's architectural pattern or blueprint and its applications for the restoration and reformation of His Church in the 21st century.

In addition to using the Old and New Testaments as the basis of this comprehensive architectural study, Apostle Kouri will also use the "Constitution of The Communion Of Apostolic Churches" as a text. Many who have studied the CAC Constitution have stated that "it is the best book on the apostolic church that they have ever read."

In addition to serving as Chancellor of ATS, George Kouri serves as the Presiding Apostle of the Communion of Apostolic Churches (a global communion of apostles and churches, http://www.communionofapostolicchurches.com) and is General Editor of the Constitution.

 AD310  The Revelation Of Jesus Christ  While AD310 will of necessity deal with the technical matters, i.e. the dating, authorship, and the literary style of the Book of Revelation, the principle focus of AD310 will be on the proper interpretation of the prophetic symbols used by Jesus and also on the importance of understanding the outline or chronological order of prophetic events taught by Jesus throughout the last week of His earthly ministry. This same exact outline or chronology is followed by Jesus in the Book of Revelation, and it is the interpretive key to properly interpreting the prophecy given by Jesus in the Book of Revelation.

B. B. Warfield, the great Princeton Theologian, once declared, "the Book of Revelation scarcely advances beyond the teaching of Jesus' given on the Mount of Olives the last week of His public ministry."

 AD310 is a bachelor's level course and is a prerequisite for the master's and doctoral degrees.

AM207
God's Agenda For The 21st Century

AM207 deals with what the Lord Jesus is doing to reform His Church. The 21st Century will be an apostolic century. But this will not happen without a true apostolic reformation. The Lord is moving to revive His work, to restore the foundations of His Church laid by mighty apostles like Peter and Paul, and He is reforming His Church so that the thousands and thousands of allotments or congregations joined together through apostles and elders might function as one Holy Apostolic Church in the earth. 

If the 21st Century is going to be an Apostolic Century there are two things that must happen. First,God's servants must recover the revelation of Christ, His Kingdom, and His Church that was entrusted by Jesus to those first apostles. This revelation is the basis of the Church's faith, the faith of Jesus. Second, God's servants must rediscover the fellowship or communion of the apostles that Jesus Himself established as the basis of the Church's governmental unity.

NT461 Last Days According To Jesus and the Prophets of Israel
NT461 is a comprehensive overview of the last days of the Old Covenant age and the establishment of the New Covenant administration of the Kingdom of heaven according to Jesus and His apostles. NT461 is divided into four major parts and utilizes Dr. Kouri's teaching notes and video teaching.

In Part I Dr. Kouri deals with the preaching and teaching of Jesus during the last week of His Ministry. It includes His triumphal entry, the cleansing of the Temple, the parable of the Wicked Tenants, the parable of the Wedding Feast, Jesus' prophecy about the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple, and His amazing explanation of His prophecy in His Olivet Discourse.

In Part II he deals with Jesus' chronology of the Messianic Kingdom. This includes an in depth study of the outline or chronological order of Jesus' parable of the Wedding feast, the Olivet Discourse, and Jesus' prophecy recorded by John in the Book of Revelation.

In Part III, Dr. Kouri deals with Jesus amazing prophecy about the times of the Gentiles recorded in Luke 21:24. This part includes Jesus' understanding of the fulfillment of the vision of the prophets of Israel regarding Messiah's Day and the times of the Gentiles (i.e. the conversion of the nations and peace on earth as envisioned by the prophets).

Finally, in Part IV Dr. Kouri unfolds Romans 11, Paul's commentary on Jesus prophecy concerning the fulfillment of the times of the Gentiles in Luke 21:24. And based upon Paul's revelation of the fullness of the Gentiles and the fullness of the Jews, Dr. Kouri closes Part IV with a Kingdom scenario about the future salvation of the gentile nations, which includes the Arabs, and the provocation of the Jewish people to jealousy, which will result in the future conversion of the fullness of the Jewish people.

If you enjoyed Dr. Kouri's book "The Sign of the Kingdom", you will love this provocative course of study, as it is much more comprehensive.

CIV101
Apostolic Architecture and Kingdom Dominion
Apostolic Architecture And Kingdom Dominion is the entry level of this important subject of Kingdom dominion.

It is premised on the understanding expounded by the Lord:

"Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure 'to give you the kingdom' " (Luke 12:32).

John the apostle also reveals part of the dominion earmarked for God's offspring, 1 Joh 3:1-3:  

"Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure".

At its most basic level CIV101 practically unveils, conveys and imparts the architecture of the Kingdom and the dominion that goes with that architecture into the life, calling and ministry sphere of the student .

This course will enable the student to comprehend Christ in his multiple domains including the spiritual, economic, social and governmental.

CIV101 is an Associate's and Bachelor's level course and is located in the School of Kingdom Civilization.
