The birth of the I.A.M Apostolic Fellowship embodies the truth that “transition is often discovery’s dwelling place.” The Apostolic principal and the power of true covenant has united both men and women; both young and old across the country under the banner of both holiness and unity.
The thought “the generations that remain, is the generation of now” embodies and expresses the kingdom mind to unite the generation of our forefathers, the generation which is come, and the generations which are to come into the eternally existent time “NOW”. That expression and intention is based on the belief that the Gospel of Jesus Christ must live and be propagated both to and through generations unborn to time. An eternal reminder of His covenant to fathers, their children, and their children’s children. The Fellowship is convinced that the ability to recognize the hand of God, and timing of God regardless of chronological release, through the exercise of spiritual gifts, episcopal governance, apostolic impartation, and prophetic direction is imperative for the New Testament Church to fully function as the dynamic organism God has intended. It is our intention to fully embrace the reality that the mind and movements of God are independent of the element of time. He remains the same God today, yesterday, and forever more!
The multi-cultural I AM Apostolic Fellowship is structured with an Apostolic Hierarchy. The “Tiers of Leadership” include the Apostolic Council, Sacred College of Apostles and Prophets, College of Episcopates, and senior pastors.
Ecclesiastical are called to a lifetime ministry of service, Word, sacrament and leadership. It is our belief that “no man is an island” and that strength is found in numbers. Scripture encourages us to allow iron to sharpen Iron. Our leadership brings a combined experience of apostolic training and prophetic insight; years of kingdom experience combined with the strength of Joshua’s generation in order to fully equip pastors and their churches to excel in the kingdom. This fellowship is designed to establish covenant relationships and to meet the spiritual needs of Ecclesiastical and local churches by providing leadership, mentorship, training and empowerment.
