Welcome to ICAL Membership!
Thank you for inquiring about ICAL Membership!
ICAL is a professional society of apostolic leaders who are recognized by a significant segment of the church as having leadership gifts associated with the Biblical definition of an apostle and who have been ministering through this gift with the evidence of Godly fruit for a significant period of time.
ICAL’s Official Statement on the Definition of an Apostle is as follows:
An apostle is a Christian leader gifted, taught, commissioned, and sent by God with the authority to establish the foundational government of the church within an assigned sphere of ministry by hearing what the Spirit is saying to the churches and by setting things in order accordingly for the growth and maturity of the church. Since apostles minister in several different ways, ICAL is open to “vertical apostles” (including ecclesiastical, functional, congregational, and team-member vertical apostles), to “horizontal apostles” (including convening, ambassadorial, mobilizing, and territorial horizontal apostles), and to different kinds of “workplace apostles” (Those who spend a majority of their time and ministry in the workplace).
ICAL members are relational and accountable to one another. ICAL does not ordain or commission apostles. Neither is ICAL a “covering” agency. It should not be considered the primary accountability agent for any of its members. We encourage our members to establish those kinds of relationships with other individuals and/or organizations that can adequately provide the kind of true covering and accountability that all leaders need on a personal level.
In order to become a member of ICAL, applicants must be nominated by two current members and fit the description of an apostle stated above. After completing the appropriate applications for membership, an ICAL official will interview the nominee and review their application on a national, continental or international basis depending upon the applicant’s geography and ICAL’s presence in their locale.
Membership in ICAL primarily comes through being an active member of one’s own National Coalition. It is the goal of ICAL to have a National Coalition in every nation of the earth (i.e. The Mexican Coalition, Brazilian Coalition, Canadian Coalition, Nigerian Coalition, Malaysian Coalition, etc.). Membership in these National Coalitions automatically gives the person membership in the International Coalition.
In cases where members do not have a functioning coalition in their nation, they are asked to join their Continental Coalition (as is the case in Europe) or the International Coalition, depending on their geography and ICAL’s presence in their locale. These members are then encouraged to work within the borders of their nation to help develop a National Coalition of their own (for a full list of nations where a coalition exists or is in process of being formed, please click the CONTACT tab at the top of the page).
Membership in ICAL is for the individual, not as a married couple. If both a husband and wife are recognized as apostolic leaders, consideration, and possible invitation, will be processed on each individual with a separate application and reduced fee as a married couple. Spouses are encouraged to attend ICAL functions together.
