    I'm not sure how widely known this is yet, but I do know I've experienced it in my little town. There is a church in this city, affiliated with this group that claims that their Senior Leader, as they call him, is an Apostle, his wife is a prophet, his brother-in-law, also the Assistant Leader, is a pastor, his wife is the Adminstrator, and until recently, their Youth Leader was an Evangelist, and his wife a Teacher, all based on Ephesians 4:11.

    They are charismatic, with all the trappings of such, tongues, etc. plus they seem to hold to a melting pot of all the various movements in Charismatic history, some WoF, some Latter Rain, some Third Wave, etc.

    They also follow C. Peter Wagner's Teachings on the "Five-Fold Ministry." Based on an improper interpretation of Ephesians 4:11

    What do you think?

    There is a big push from what I understand in the past few years toward this five fold ministry teaching. Most Charismatics take it for granted that these are ongoing roles for Church leaders, and to question it is almost seen as heretical. At least this has been my experience with the Charismatics I know.

    yea, that's exactly what it is with these guys, if you question it you become the heritic. In this particular church, I'm not sure if this is true of all of them, if you question the "Apostle" you become a heritic. What a controlling atmosphere.
