The Gift of Apostolic Administration


What is Apostolic Administration?

This is a servant-leadership gift given by God to specific people to develop and manage apostolic ministries and organizations. 

Definition of an Apostolic Administrator

An Apostolic Administrator is a mature Christian servant-leader with the God-given Gift of Administration who is called and anointed to strategically develop, organize, manage, and advance the mission of apostolic leaders.  © 2019 Lynn Kishaba 

Biblical Examples

The gift of Apostolic Administration showed in the lives of prominent people throughout the Bible such as Joseph, Daniel, Nehemiah, Stephen, Phoebe, and many others. The first New Testament examples of Apostolic Administrators are the 7 men chosen to solve the food distribution problem noted in Acts 6:1-7. 

God has not designed apostolic leaders to do it all and micro-manage the details for running the ministry/work.  Apostolic leaders need an Aaron and Hur to lift their arms so the battle can be won.

How do they Function?

Apostolic administrators are the support backbone of every apostolic ministry or organization. 

  • They are gifted to create something out of nothing, such as the formation of the Tabernacle of Moses. God gave Moses the vision and design of the tabernacle, but God anointed craftsmen to create all the parts and bring them together (Exodus 30:1-11).   

  • They are leaders and seers full of wisdom, knowledge, skill, and grace who can strategically transform a mission vision into a reality.  

  • They are called to bring order and direction to the management of the organization.   

  • They understand 'Commander's Intent' and are able to solve a multitude of problems on their own. 

What's the difference between a secretary and apostolic administrator?

There is a great difference between a secretary or assistant administrator and one who is called as an apostolic administrator. It is the specific spiritual gift given by God revealed in His anointing, calling, and appointing on key people to serve apostolic leaders. (1 Cor. 12:28, Acts 6:1-7). 

Experience & Training Seminars

Since the 1980s, God has called and gifted me to work with apostolic leaders, such as Apostle John P. Kelly and hundreds of others around the world to advance the Kingdom of God on earth. The wisdom and knowledge I gained and continue to gain from working with apostolic leaders has enabled the Lord to use me to assist in the development and management of the largest Christian professional society of Apostolic Leaders in world – ICAL, the International Coalition of Apostolic Leaders.
