Apostle and Apostolic Leadership Mean the Same Thing in the USCAL Universe of Terms

The US Coalition of Apostolic Leaders use the terms apostle and apostolic leadership. These two terms mean the same thing in the USCAL universe of terms. This means USCAL considers Dr. Michael Brown an apostle.

By “apostolic leadership”, I mean a leader who functions in the ministry gift of apostle as found in Ephesians 4:11.

That’s from their own website, from their lead convener Joseph Mattera. Link to source.

To me, this is significant because I notice obfuscation by some. They use the term apostolic leader/leadership as a term that appears to be broad and include almost anyone in a significant area of church leadership. It’s a way for them to say, “I’m not claiming to be an apostle. I’m not part of NAR.”

As I’ve pointed out before, USCAL associates itself with NAR/New Apostolic Reformation. Their agenda is to usher in a new apostolic reformation. Link to source.

3. Recognizing the apostolic can also help usher in a new apostolic reformation
Some proponents of the apostolic say it is evident the old way of doing things through hierarchical denominationalism is dead or dying (with the exception of Pentecostal denominations, like the Assemblies of God, most denominations are on the decline).

This also means USCAL considers anyone an apostle when they give them the label apostolic leader. That means USCAL considers Dr. Michael Brown an apostle. Dr. Michael Brown is on the USCAL national council.
