Springfield, Mo.—March 31, 2005—In February 2005 the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary (AGTS) and the editorial staff of the Encounter: Journal for Pentecostal Ministry (an online journal first published by AGTS in Summer 2004, published the first book in the Encounter: Pentecostal Ministry Series, He Gave Apostles: Apostolic Ministry in the 21st Century.

The renewal of the apostolic office within the Pentecostal-Charismatic Movement is being advanced by some academic theologians and a growing body of popular-level writings from leaders who are eager to “jump-start” a lethargic North American Church. Given the rising debate, AGTS believes that careful analysis is imperative to protect the unity of the Church and the integrity of the ministry. 

He Gave Apostles is a collection of reflections from the AGTS Fall 2004 Symposium on Apostolic Ministry. Included are the lectures of three noted Pentecostal scholars, Dr. Gary B. McGee, Dr. William W. Menzies and Dr. Vinson Synan who have been participants in and chroniclers of the Pentecostal-Charismatic movement around the world.  Also included are other papers on biblical, leadership and practical ministry issues raised by panelists and participants in the symposium. The book raises relevant and urgent questions and brings the wealth and wisdom of Scripture to bear on the question of apostleship and the contemporary church.

The book may be ordered from Encounter: Journal for Pentecostal Ministry, Assemblies of God Theological Seminary at or by calling 1-800-467-AGTS or (417) 268-1000.  Costs: $8.95 each; or 10-50 books at $7.50 each or 50+ books at $5 each (plus shipping)
