Our Mission

The mission of CI Apostolic Network (CIAN)
is to establish a continuing network of apostolic ministers based upon committed relationships, submission to Apostolic/Prophetic oversight, mutual accountability, andfaithful financial support.

The Mission of CIAN to the Body of Christ:

  • Provide present-truthresources such as: books, teaching tapes, praise and worship songs, video presentations, etc.
  • Activating and equipping the saints through resources such as the Manual for Ministering Spiritual Gifts and Prophets and Personal Prophecy Teaching Manual. These are two of the greatest tools ever made available to the Body of Christ for teaching, training, activating, and maturing the saints in their gifts and callings. These tools advance believers toward functioning as members of specific ministry teams.
  • Provide regional and national conferences to demonstrate and teach present truth.
  • Provide specialty seminars for advanced training such as: Apostolic/Prophetic Training Module (APT’s); Prophetic Worship & Arts Conference; Apostolic Leadership Summits; Healing and Deliverance Seminars.
  • CI Equipping Network (CIEN) has an Undergraduate and Graduate level, residential (Ministry Training College) and distance college. CIEN has been functioning for over 35+ years. Ministers can further their biblical education and earn an undergraduate or graduate degree in Theology or Ministry.

The Mission of CIAN to Ministries or Churches:

  • Ensure every CIAN ministry or church is firmly grounded upon the foundation of the Church, which is Apostles and Prophets, with Jesus Christ being the Chief Cornerstone (Eph.2:21).
  • To activate each CIAN ministry or church to become fulfilled and mature, enabling each of them to be a living demonstration of God’s purpose for His Church today. This activation would cause each church or ministry to send forth teams to demonstrate and minister Christ’s life and purpose to His corporate Body.
  • Assist in resolving differences or conflicts within the local church – through consultation with CIAN Leadership and Regional Apostolic/Prophetic Regional Teams (RAPT), ministry teams assigned to aid pastors; Apostolic/Prophetic advice and counsel and on-sight arbitration.
  • Provide a place of accountability, oversight, and relationship so that each local church body might be a place of safety, security, and blessing.
  • Provide a network that establishes Apostolic/Prophetic local churches in present truth ministry. An Apostolic/Prophetic church has the goal and dedication to train every church member to function on a ministry team thus enabling them to fulfill their membership ministry in the Body of Christ. Church Reformation for City Transformation.

The Mission of CIAN to Ministers

  • Provide a network for relating to and sharing with other ministers and churches.
  • Provide Regional CIAN Ministers Meetings (within each major geographical sector), by the Regional Apostolic/Prophetic Team Leader, as a method for oversight and accountability and where relationship and fellowship is encouraged and modeled.
  • Personal accountability and relationship – through personal contact and relationship with Apostolic/Prophetic Teams and other ministers- regional gatherings, conferences, and summits.
  • Offer various levels of affiliation and relationship to meet the needs of individual ministers.
  • Provide a means of restoration for pastors and trans-local ministers through covering, counseling, and support during restoration periods.
  • Provide a legal covering for those who make application for exemption through inclusion under CIAN group federal tax exemption (501(c)3) (Ordained ministers only)
  • Provide Network ministers with the latest revelation and present-truth understanding being activated within the Church.
  • Provide an opportunity for continued growth by reviewing each minister’s education and background experience to determine what course of study will best equip them in fulfilling their purpose. Provide courses of study which will aid ministers in developing greater people skills, more effective time management, and an increased understanding of the principles of God.

3. EAGLE Leadership Development Program

For individuals who either have a fivefold ministry calling and seek to be further equipped and prepared to become an Apostolic / Prophetic Leader in the Church today or for those church leaders who want to be further equipped in the Apostolic / Prophetic. This is a program that combines Apostolic / Prophetic teaching resources with interactive ministry equipping opportunities to enable those called of the Lord to be equipped for success.Find out more!

4. Associate Minister

This level of affiliation must be initiated by an active CIAN Ordained Minister. This unique level enables the CIAN ordained minister to affiliate individuals that they pastorally / apostolically oversee within their ministry. The associate minister will relate and be accountable to the ordained minister (associate overseer) rather than the leadership of CIAN. The associates ministerial functions, guidelines and credentials are established and documented by the overseer’s authority and in accordance with the laws of the state in which they reside, not CI Apostolic Network.

Revelation of Ordination

Team Ministry (Married)

Christian International (CI) has a strong commission to restore and establish team ministry. We prophetically commission and ordain both husband and wife to the fivefold ministry – apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and/or teacher. In the event a spouse is unsure of his/her ministry call, we ask God to reveal that calling and then prophetically speak into their life and germinate that seed of ministry that has been dormant within them. CI does not ordain men and women without spousal support and involvement.

Individual Ministry (Unmarried)

CI also ordains unmarried men and women who are called to fivefold ministry. These individuals receive full impartation, activation, and commissioning as hands are laid on them by anointed ministers.

Prophetic Impartation

Prophetic presbytery is held at each ordination because CIAN does not believe that ordination is ever to be merely a formal religious ritual. Ordination of fivefold ministry with the laying on of hands is to be on the order of 1 Tim. 4:14. Supernatural anointing is administered through the laying on of hands and divinely inspired prophetic utterance for impartation, revelation, activation, and a great investment of Holy Spirit enablement. The prophetic presbytery team is formed of mature ministers who have proven ability to prophesy a pure, revealing and directive word fo the Lord to those being ordained. We are New Testament ministers of the Spirit as well as the Word (2 Cor. 3:6).

EAGLE Program

Vision

The vision of the EAGLE leadership program is to Empower Apostolic / Prophetic Godly Leaders to Emerge as 5-fold ministers in the church today.

The Eagle Program is a Leadership Development Program within the Christian International Apostolic Network that serves to equip and prepare those with 5 fold ministry callings to be Apostolic/ Prophetic leaders in the church today. It is a program that combines Apostolic/ Prophetic teaching resources with interactive ministry equipping opportunities to enable those called of the Lord to be equipped for success. The Eagle Program uses a distant education format along with regional equipping events to enable those who may or may not be in active full time ministry to move through progressive practical learning experiences. It is a ministry development track that can be pursued from your current location. It is a track that allows you to progress at your own pace with your current time priorities. It is anticipated that someone with other full time employment could complete the program over a 1- 1 ½ year time frame. For those dedicated full time to the Eagle program it is anticipated that they may complete the certification program in less than six months. Following the completion of the Eagle program any successful candidate may also continue in CIAN relationship as an Eagle graduate.

Reports will focus on what the leader received as an impartation from each book, along with how they may incorporate that impartation into practical ministry.

SEMINAR RESOURCES: APOSTOLIC PROPHETIC TRAINING (APT) MODULES

APT modules can be participated in at various locations in the US. Eagle leaders will complete four of the modules throughout the program at their individually selected locations. 2 APT modules will be mandatory modules, the first being the Manual for Ministering Spiritual Gifts module and the second is a module of your choosing. These are focused on developing the prophetic gifting in an individuals life. Any other two modules may be selected from a variety of Apostolic and Prophetic themes including deliverance, miracles, leadership, city transformation, and worship, among others. More information about APT modules is available atwww.christianinternational.org.

REGIONAL MEETINGS

Eagle leaders will be invited to participate with the local Licensed and Ordained ministers in monthly meetings at various regional locations, with oversight from the CIAN Regional Apostolic Prophetic Team (RAPT) in that region. These are interactive meetings focused on five fold ministry development. Eagle leaders will be submitted to the RAPT for the purposes of the meetings, along with assistance in the Eagle leader’s ministry development. The RAPT or the CIAN Director will have the authority to dismiss any Eagle leader for misconduct.

Cost

The cost for the Eagle program will be $150.00 per course for individuals or $250 per course for married couples while in active pursuit of certification. Once an Eagle leader has completed the program and received certification, the Eagle leader may continue in CIAN relationship at a reduced $50.00 per month fee. These costs include book costs, all grading fees, and participation at Regional Meetings (excluding meals). There is an additional cost for APT modules. These costs are typically ~ $100.00 per module.
