This Is The Home Of All Ministers and Partners of Apostolic Movement International
Here you can meet each one and get to know them better.
From the very beginning the Lord gave us an outrageous dream. It started the day that Apostle Les shared an incredible picture with us. A prophetic vision given to someone very many years ago. I will not forget the shivers that ran up my spine with each line he read.
With each word, I felt such a rhema in my spirit. I KNEW that these were not just words, but a confirmation of what God had called us to do. But could we do it? It had not been done before. It was impossible! Or was it?
Would we dare to think we could do something so outrageous? Well we dared to hope and so began our journey that has led us to the point.
The Vision Of The Sleeping Giant
Huddled around the dining room table, Apostle Les held up a sheet of printed paper. He read it to us, pausing after each profound statement.
I cannot remember each word that he read that day, but the pictures have stuck with me through the years. The vision was of the Sleeping Giant.
It spoke of the Body of Christ as a powerful giant. Much like the story of Gulliver's travels. A giant capable of so much fire and ability, but bound.
It had potential to shake the world and to crush any enemy that came its way. But just as my title depicts, this powerful giant ...was asleep. The vision was that a move would come to wake that giant. That it would shake off the cords that bound it.
Then as it rose, that it would take a mighty sword in its hand and destroy every work of the enemy. It would be an era, where every believer walked in power.
Not just a mighty head. Not just a mighty arm. No, a mighty BODY! Where every single member was alive and walking in power.
My mind reeled. Imagine it! A church where every single believer walked in miracles and power. A church where every single believer knew the Lord Jesus in a face to face relationship. Where it was not divided, but joined - not by denomination or our own ideas - but by the Holy Spirit.
Even to this day, I cannot help but want to shout when I think of this vision. Right there the Lord sent a call directly into our hearts. He said to us:
WAKE MY SLEEPING GIANT!
As we prayed as a team, we saw that giant wake up. We saw how we would equip it and then send it out. If only ...if only we could put a sword in its hand. If only we could empower it.
Well, those are just a few of the thoughts that coursed through our minds as the Lord revealed more to us over the years. That call still rings very loudly in my ears and right here at AMI it is exactly what we have continued to do.
Opening Doors For Others.
The clearest message that the Lord always gave us was that He had called us to open doors for others to walk through. Our mandate, was to help you achieve yours! To wake up, equip and release the Sleeping Giant!
Although most of what we do is done one on one, right here on this website, you can get a glimpse of some of that happening. Our Partners are not a bunch of people that we just collect to make us look good. No, sorry we are not that kind of status quo ministry and we never plan to be.
We are not here to gather our numbers, up our monthly tithes and tote our great influence. Unless we bring real power and change to the church, what do we have that will remain? And so our partners and associates are not numbers on our lists, they are our family. They are our disciples, children and our friends.
Everything we have and are is available to them. The bottom line?
WE HELP YOU START YOUR OWN MINISTRY!
The Lord has blessed us with the best of the best! Fellow warriors who have also dared to be different. Those who have looked at the way the church has been sleeping and have said "It is ENOUGH!" Together, we work as a team to change that.
What We Give Our Partners
1. Ourselves And All We Have
The greatest and most costly gift we give our partners is ourselves. And so all we have is available to our partners. Our time, discipleship and resources. As each one establishes their ministry in their community and folks approach us, we are quick to pass them on. When they are led of the Lord to do something new, we are there to send folks their way and provide them with materials.
Our advice, our knowledge and our love, is always available to them. It is these things that will put that sword in their hand and give them what they need to continue.
2. Training and Teaching
We give our partners the mentorship and training that they need to fulfill their ministries. Whether they are called to the Apostolic Office or are simply called to function in pastoral ministry, we make sure that each one receives what they need, when they need it.
3. A Website
For those partners who desire it, we provide them with their own website to get their message out and ministry heard. We then direct all people in their area to their site.
4. Mailing Lists
Along with their website, we have included a system where each partner is able to create as many different mailing lists as they would like. Our goal is to get their ministry OUT THERE!
5. Covering and Support
Our partners have the option to be ordained through us and are fully covered by us in every way.
The Part Our Partners Play
Each partner plays a different role. The financial support that they give us helps us to keep going with this vision. It has enabled us to help others with materials and to publish so many free resources. It also helps supplement our income, so that we do not have to overcharge for our courses.
It would be wonderful to come to the time when we could offer all of our resources for free! It is our Partners and Associates that are helping make this vision a reality!
Not only are our partners a financial resource for us, but a personal one as well. Their continued, love, support and encouragement has touched our hearts so many times. Not only that, but they are a source of support for one another!
We encourage interaction between them and it is not uncommon for them to travel and assist one another in their ministries. As I said ...we are a family here.
Not many of our partners have set up their websites, but you are welcome to browse those that are in tact so far. Most of them concentrate on their offline ministries and if you are in their region, why not drop them a line and get in touch?
We can vouch for them! Not only have they got a heart of passion, but they have all trained under us and studied our materials.
What Must I Do To Be Accepted As A Partner?
Perhaps as you have read through this you have been thinking to yourself, 'THIS SOUNDS LIKE ME!" Well if so, then we invite you to consider partnership with us. Before you leap off to the application form though, I do want to outline some of our requirements.
1. Have to be familiar with our teachings.
We are more likely to accept your application if you are already a student with us. However if you have already read many of our materials, we might accept you under these terms. However, it most cases, if you have not done any of our courses, we will require you to do a few courses.
The great thing about being a partner though, it means that as you do the courses, that you can relate to Craig and I directly during your training instead of having to go through our lecturers.
2. You have to be open to discipleship or spiritual parenting.
Unless you are open to learn and change, then we cannot walk together. I think this makes sense to anyone wanting to sign up, so I will not labor the point.
3. Financial support is required
We require some sort of financial support from our partners to prove their commitment. There are those that are able to be generous and those that are not. You are not penalized for the amount that you are able to give, but we do look at how much this relationship means to you.
If you meet all these criteria, then we invite you to sign up!
