THE OFFICE OF THE APOSTLE VS DOING APOSTOLIC MINISTRY
How This Leadership Ministry Views the words Apostle, apostle, an office of an apostle
Excerpt from DR. TAVEAU D’ARCY OFFICIAL BLOG http://www.taveauleader.com Posting Feb 15, 2013
Dr. Taveau D’Arcy Leadership Ministries uses the word apostle to signify ” servant pioneering senior leader,” “God’s divinely sent messenger,” “divinely commissioned Holy Spirit work birther” “Holy Spirit mandated spiritual trail blazer” “Bible believing, organic chief doctrine originator” and ”off scouring of the world.”
** Being viewed as “doing the work of an apostle” and anyone “being apostolic” is not necessarily the same as that person holding the “OFFICE OF AN APOSTLE.” Note the description above for the writer’s view of any God called person being used often or regularly in the above described clearly “apostolic” manner
**And clearly the God mandated servant leader, entrepreneur, the lay leader, the inventor, the senior pioneering office planter, may be used in an “apostolic” fashion ( “birthing, planting, overseeing” Spirit directed manner , as described above) yet still not be molded, fashioned or called to walk in the OFFICE of an APOSTLE, much less as a CHIEF APOSTLE.
**However, the OFFICE of the apostle, a chief doctrine originator, or a God ordained business empire building organic senior mature leader, senior pastor, is one that is never ACHIEVED but created FROM WITHIN only by the Lord
**The OFFICE of being an “apostle” is not achieved by any human performance, based on personal decisions, or personal merit, rather the OFFICE of the senior chief apostle is a call from God which requires much sifting, maturation, repeated breaking and God molding, fashioning and finally creating the office of the apostle after what can only be regarded as GOD’S REQUIREMENT OVER A GOD APPOINTED LENGTH OF TIME AND IN HIS ,OVER ALL DUE PROCESS.
Example: Paul himself stated in Ephesians 3:7, “Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.”
Example: Apostle Paul himself stated in Philippians 3: 12″Not that I have attained or am already perfected, but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ has laid hold of me”
(NOTE: This statement comes following Paul’s lengthy long description of all his natural, educational,worldly big qualifications, for which he now, for the knowledge and High Call of Christ regards as “dust”.

The TD Ministry uses the CAPITAL A Apostle when addressing the first 12 Chief Apostles, and Apostle Paul. (Even when Paul NEVER uses a capital letter when writing about ANY the 5 fold offices, OR when referring to himself.
Yet, out of honor and respect for the pioneering apostolic forefathers in the organic Christian faith,the writer does will use capital letters when mainly describing the Chief 12 and Apostle whose name was Paul.
However, when we refer all the apostolic males and females who have followed each of them , most all of the time, due to the fact that OCFC and Taveau D’Arcy Pioneering Ministries attempt to role model servant leadership, the writer will most all of the time use a “small letter,” as Pioneering Paul did, when describing, referring to nearly all modern pioneering senior leaders of ALL 5 fold leader office lamp stands.
