Using a "4 R Vision," a group of biblically based evangelical leaders has formed and officially launched a movement called the United States Coalition of Apostolic Leaders.
Bishop Joseph Mattera, the overseeing bishop of Resurrection Church and Christ Covenant Coalition in Brooklyn, New York, is the national convener of the affiliate of the International Coalition of Apostolic Leaders, launched last June.
USCAL's mission is to connect apostolic leaders so each member can function more strategically, combine their efforts nationally, and effectively accelerate the advancement of the kingdom of God into every system and sphere of society.
"As the national convener, one of the first things I did was to put together a national council that serve in both the church and marketplace so we can more adequately represent the kingdom of God," Mattera said. "Our focus will be the 4 R Vision, which is to: 1) Restore the church to walk in the way of Jesus and the apostles; 2) Reconcile ethnic leaders, associations and denominations; 3) Revive the church; and 4) Reform society."
Well-known members of the national council of approximately 60 members include (in no particular order) Bishops Dale Bronner, Roderick Caesar, Robert Stearns, Mark Chironna, Harry Jackson, Kyle Searcy, and apostolic leaders such as John Kelly, (who serves as the International Convener) Dennis Peacocke, Steve Fedesky, Lance Wallnau, Jim Garlow, Doug Stringer, Barbara Wentroble, Luis Vargas, and many more. Joseph Infranco of the ADF serves USCAL's legal adviser.
"Our members are committed to maintaining the highest possible levels of integrity regarding personal character and operational methodology among its members," a statement from uscal.us reads. "The USCAL Advisory Council gives oversight and enforces the code of biblical conduct required of each member to insure the standards of USCAL and maintain unity among the brethren (Ps. 133:1, Eph. 4:3). This does not mean 'oversight.' USCAL does not ordain or give oversight to individuals or groups of apostolic leaders."
Here are ways in which you as a leader can participate.
