Access Apostolic Network
What is an Apostolic Network?
The ACCESS APOSTOLIC NETWORK is a powerful network of ministries that are moving in the power of the Spirit, encouraging and supporting one another and building the Kingdom of God, under a protective, supportive and nurturing covering.
The Access Apostolic Network was established as a means of joining together the “new breed” of Five-Fold ministers and ministries that are emerging among the body of Christ and need a ministry covering for both ministry and legal purposes. Ministries in the network remain autonomous. This is purely a “relational” network. They are free to join or leave at any time.
ACCESS Apostolic Network is a “Covering” network for various local, regional and international ministries. We established the network in order to support and make these valuable ministers and ministries feel as though they are a part of something bigger than themselves, while building the Kingdom.
This ministry was designed to provide “covering,” nurture, support and protection to ministers and ministries for greater things!
We are called to facilitate a grass-roots movement that helps take the church and its ministry back to its origins; in the Community, Streets, Market-Place and Houses!
Access is Kingdom-Centred. We are designed to be an Equipping Centre and support structure for the new breed of believers who are wanting to do more within the Kingdom of God. These believers are mobilizing to powerfully DO the work of ministry!
The members of Access Apostolic Network are joined together through a loving ministry covenant, based on their calling and giftings within the Body of Christ.
We recognize the already-operating gifts and ministries of others and give them a safe covering that helps them to cultivate, grow and strengthen what God has called them to do.
It is a covenant of support and nurture by which pray to see glorious things happen both to and through the partners in our network.
A short modern history of what is happening and growing in the world today: In compliance with scriptures such as Ephesians 4:11, Ephesians 2:20, and I Corinthians 12:28, the offices of the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, and Teacher began to be established and recognized by an increasingly wider spectrum of the body of Christ during the 1990’s. By the year 2000, the office of Apostle had begun to be affirmed and set in place throughout numerous ministries of the “New Apostolic Reformation,” a term coined by the late C. Peter Wagner, who, at the time, was the Presiding Apostle of the International Coalition of Apostles.
Many prominent and powerful ministers and ministries are part of this dynamic, growing and exciting network.
Access Outreach Australia and Apostles Russell and Betty Witham recognize H.I.M. – Harvest International Ministries - as their Apostolic covering. We make ourselves available to pray with you, cover you, equip you and allow our insurance to cover you (within Australia).
Access Outreach Australia is a Not-for-Profit Limited Liability organization that is registered with the Qld government. It provides oversight to Churches, Ministers and Ministries in Australia and potentially around the world. The Apostles/Pastors Russell and Betty Witham have been commissioned as apostles by Harvest International Ministries (Chief Apostle Che Ahn (Pasadena), Chuck Pierce (USA) and Royree Jensen (Aust.) which is not a denomination but a fellowship of ministers, ministries and ministry networks in many countries of the world.
The fundamental vision of Access Outreach Australia and the Access Apostolic Network is to advance the Kingdom of God in the earth and outwork the mandate of Jesus’ Great Commission: – to preach the Gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ to every creature and to make disciples of all nations by reaching out to the unsaved and by nurturing and equipping Christians. This is done in whichever manner that the Lord calls us to, whether it be feeding the poor, prayer groups, Bible studies, church planting, music ministries, special needs groups, etc. World evangelization is the heartbeat of apostles wherever they might be found.
ACCESS is a “full gospel” Apostolic expression of the Kingdom of God upon the Earth.
We welcome new ministries to become part of our family. This is truly an exciting alliance of God-called, effective Christian ministries, answering the call of the Lord Jesus Christ to “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every person.” Mark 16:15
