They do this primarily by being visionary people. They are motivated by the prospect of bigger, better, and/or newer things. But to carry off big ideas they also know they need to train people, organize people, and develop people. Apostles build movements.

Prophets are analyzers. While others seek to expand the church, prophets are more inclined to perfect the church. With an eye to what’s going on behind the scenes - in the spirit realm - their motivation is to bring people ever closer to God. That’s why their message is often one of admonition or correction. Prophets are like the conscience of the church. As they lead they tend to build climates.

Evangelists are advertisers. They are the sales and marketing force of the Kingdom. While the other gifts focus on the culture within the church, evangelists key in on the culture around the church.

They excel at explaining the world to the church and the church to the world. They are natural promoters who are great at building excitement.

Pastors are nurturers. They are the main defensive string on the Kingdom team. Like real shepherds, their heart is to feed and protect their flock from danger. Their teaching, counselling, and planning all stem from their need to keep their church healthy and safe. They are spiritual care-givers who tend to build sanctuaries.

teams. The Children's Home is home to over 170 children where they live, learn, and love Jesus! Victory also offers vocational training to help graduating students find a profitable career. This building project is funded by Victory Church Lethbridge.

Any of the Five Fold can serve as a senior leader. But the key to optimizing their leadership lies in knowing their gifting. Once we know a leader’s call we can compliment it by carefully choosing the other members of their team. A senior leader who is prophetic, for example, should make sure that there are pastoral and evangelistic people around them to bring a balance. This could mean team members within their local church. But it could also mean that they have an apostolic leader over them to advise and bring balance to their leadership.

Ephesians 4 promises that the Five Fold Ministry will bring unity, stability, and maturity to the body of Christ. That under their leadership every joint in the body can be equipped and mobilized for supernatural church growth. This is precisely why we focus on leadership development in VCI. Because when we release the whole Five Fold Ministry – we release the whole church!
