Todd Bentley, The Lakeland Revival, And Apostolic Alignment

The mission of the Apostles Theological Seminary is first to recover an accurate understanding of the Gospel of the Kingdom, entrusted by Jesus Christ to the original apostles of the First Century, and second, in partnership with others of like faith and passion to help train a new generation of kingdom leaders and fivefold ministers to reform the Lord's Church and equip the saints to transform governments, cities and nations and fill the earth with the glory of the sons of God.

Established to serve the emerging fellowship of apostles, apostolic companies, and networks and jurisdictions of ministers and churches by providing an accurate and authentic online curriculum of apostolic and prophetic studies aimed at training a new generation of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers in the spirit and heart, vision and revelation, message and teaching, ministry and methods, governmental patterns and structures, mission and purposes of those original Apostles of the Lamb and Ascension-gift Apostles recorded for us in the Canon of the New Testament.

The recent confusion and controversy surrounding Todd Bentley's separation from his wife, the resulting fallout for the Lakeland revival, and the many urgent questions currently being raised throughout the body of Christ about the nature and validity of what C. Peter Wagner and the International Coalition of Apostles call "apostolic alignment" or "covering" and the validity and responsibilities of apostles today warrant special discussion and dialog on the home page of ATS.

There is a growing need today for genuine apostolic mediation and reconciliation. The present controversy surrounding the Lakeland Revival reveals many presenting problems with the current apostolic movement. One area of concern is where does one go if seeking conflict resolution and binding apostolic mediation? It is an area of church ministry that most leaders today will admit they were never trained in. For those of you who are enrolled at ATS and are seriously concerned about apostolic mediation and reconciliation, I recommend that you sign up for our course CL500; "Conflict Management and Resolution in Church Life". Professor Brent Daub has a master's degree in mediation from Pepperdine Law School and is a part of the ATS Faculty. This is a course designed to help you fulfill your calling and bring peace and reconciliation to your sphere of responsibility. -Michael Daub-
