PROTOCOLS for being part of the family (biblical “tribe”) of IPAA

“The IPAA is a relational body of leaders called to apostolic and prophetic ministries; we also welcome other ministries including the 5-fold” – culled from our IPAA vision statement

About the CORE TEAM

The Core Team were mostly appointed at the inception of IPAA, their number was completed at 7 with the addition of Mark Van Gundy in November 2017.

They are the earthly custodians of the heavenly vision of IPAA.

The bottom line of being part of IPAA is your level of relationship with these men and women who comprise the governing body of IPAA (and their spouses where applicable).

These relationships spawn the consensual ability to speak into your life and offer counsel where required by you or prompted by them.

IPAA DEFINITION AND CRITERIA OF AN APOSTLE

Definition of an apostle

One who is called, commissioned and sent by The LORD JESUS with the authority, character and power to successfully introduce and establish kingdom truth and order in The Church as well as in other spheres of influence on the Earth. (Attributes of an apostle will also often include a kingdom mindset, links with prophets, unusual visitations and demonstrations of power, signs and wonders)

(Matthew 10:1,2; Romans 11:13; 1Corinth 9:2)

ATTRIBUTES OF AN APOSTLE

A “sent one” backed with these core three attributes -

  • 1.AUTHORITY and/or POWER (Matthew 10:1,2; Lk 9:1)
    One sent and commissioned by GOD with heavens backing. This could be demonstrated in either or both these qualities: -
  • a.To a specific geographical or societal location often giving rise to a governmental leadership role; functioning at the helm of a network / sphere of influence (a networking apostle)
  • b.Demonstrations of power, signs and wonders e.g. raising the dead etc (1Corinth 2:4,5) (a signs and wonders apostle)
  • 2.A KINGDOM MINDSET
    Releasing a kingdom focus beyond a local church focus; a ministry spanning across several ministries and churches; giving rise to a ministry that embraces, accommodates and provides platforms to others
  • 3.The mature fruit of godly CHARACTER & PERSEVERANCE (2 Corinth 12:12)
    Backed by an exemplary character demonstrating perseverance, humility, a devotional prayer life, sacrifice and a servant heart

And often accompanied by a mix of these other attributes -

  • 4. A MINISTRY BIRTHED OUT OF VISITATIONS
    Unique experiences, holy visitations, special encounters with GOD (1Corinth 9:1)
  • 5. PROPHET LINKS
    Strong relational links with prophets; similarities with the ministries of old testament prophets, particularly Elijah and Elisha
  • 6. VISITATIONS
    Unique experiences, holy visitations, special encounters with GOD (1Corinth 9:1)
  • 7. WISDOM & REVELATION
  • Carrying deep insight into the purposes of GOD for now. An understanding of the revelatory truths of the gospel and how to avoid error.
