An Apostolic Hub is designed to draw and unify local believers into a regional base of global ministry operation that impacts the surrounding communities as they pray, worship, and get God’s strategies and solutions for governance, business, education, media, art & entertainment, family, and the Body of Christ. The Hub has a revival response like the ecclesiastical city-wide church of Ephesus building unity in the community. It forms Networks for shared mission in the city. Example: Antioch, which was a “Hub” for trans-local church-planting and mission. apostolic people BOTH send and are sent. It takes senders and sent out ones to establish an apostolic hub. (Acts 11:19-30, 13:1-14:28)
The Apostolic Hub through Regional Connections seek to draw on the experience and expertise of a network of affiliated ascension gift ministers (Ephesians 4:11,12) and ministries to help advance the apostolic gospel of the Kingdom in every nation. The Hub receives the five-fold gifts of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers as God’s gifts to the Church. In the context of a network of ministries, each gift has a unique contribution to make and the experience and anointing of some qualifies them as “ministers to ministers”. Getting connected to a global network such as this provides like-minded leaders the avenue to work together to make not only a local impact but a global one.
- The Hub emphasize relationship over structure, and desire to promote an environment through its events and services where ministers are building relationships with one another that will supply the positive thing which the Bible declares benefits those who are rightly connected to the body.
- The Hub upholds the autonomy and sovereignty of the local church and ministry.
- The Hub upholds the principle of freedom of Association within and outside the Network for all its associates within the framework of our Evangelical Biblical position.
One of the things God has moved us into is to go beyond building our own Hub, and begin fulfilling the Antioch call of connecting with & raising up other apostolic hubs globally. As such, we have begun to help others globally who have received the call to establish apostolic hubs in their region. We have also spent more time and resources on connecting with existing hubs. We believe in relationship first before ministry. If you are an existing hub, or if you feel the call to establish a hub in your region, we would love to build relationship with you. Feel free to contact us as the Lord leads you to.
