Apostolic Spiritual Covering
Shepherds Of Grace International, is an Apostolic ministry, which means:
We are called by God to live a separated and consecrated life. Romans 1:1- Paul describes himself as a "...bond-servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God".
We are called to be an Apostolic Father, planting and establishing churches world-wide and developing responsible evangelistic ministry. The Word of God tells us in 1 Corinthians 4:15, "For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers...", an apostolic father will produce mature sons and daughters who are ready to carry a high level of anointing in preaching, ministry, and integrity.
We are "kingdom minded", bringing Godly believers together, from every tribe and nation, for the purpose of the Great Commission. Reaching the world for Christ and training them to discover their potential, plan, and purpose in life; while helping them to identify and step into their ministry.
We do not seek a sign, but expect signs and wonders to follow an apostolic ministry. "Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds." 2 Corinthians 12:12
We will conduct ministry in the humility that Paul the Apostle demonstrated in 1 Corinthians 15:9, when he said, "For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle...".
We are servants of the most high God, providing a Spiritual Covering, with the understanding that leadership is not title or position, but rather relationship, responsibility, and empowering others. 1 Peter 5
We do not think ourselves better than another, but we are committed to growing closer to Christ daily. Studying to show ourselves approved unto God, a workman that need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth, being a doer of the Word, making the most of every opportunity as we actively participate in the Great Commission.
With this definition of "apostolic ministry", Shepherds Of Grace International has a heart to go to the places that many others do not go, to the places where there is no ministry, or very few established ministries in operation. Reaching the unreached people groups with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We provide a Spiritual Covering for pastors, churches, and other outreach ministries. Functioning together through evangelism, leadership conferences, church planting and short-term mission efforts.
We are not a denomination, but rather a fellowship. For individuals that want to join the SOGI family and meet the requirements, we provide ministerial credentials. Those becoming licensed and ordained with SOGI will recieve an International Ordination. Those who are called to missionary work will recieve an International Missionary Ordination.
