Many are familiar with the 5-fold ministry as it is stated in Ephesians 4:11 that there are five different ministries given to the church.

“So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers”

However, for the past 500 years, the shepherds and teachers have been dominant in leading the church. It has even gone so far that many have been saying that the office of apostles and prophets is no longer for this time. Fortunately, that has changed in recent decades, and many have reassessed the role of both the prophet and the apostle.

Teaching and training

Teaching and training on the role and office of prophets is widely available nowadays such as the Living in Your Destiny Schools of the prophet. But teaching and training about the role and office of apostles is scarce and even very scarce. It is precisely this fact that makes this School of the Apostles unique.

Many topics will be covered in this school:

• Calling and assignment
• Character of an apostle
• Authority and the law of attraction
• Pioneering and Entrepreneurship
• Recognizing and training leaders
• Holistic Gospel and the Kingdom of God

The list of topics is much longer. This school presents a complete and multifaceted picture of the role of an apostle. The teachers in this school are apostles themselves and share the rich experiences they have gained over the years.

For whom?

This school is intended for leaders who want to grow in a greater understanding of the office of apostle and who also have an affinity with it.  The school will be held online.


Dick & Arleen Westerhof will be the teachers at this school. In 2005 they started God’s Embassy Amsterdam church. This initiative has grown into the apostolic center By Design. They have been commissioned and confirmed as apostles and have become respected leaders in the Netherlands and Europe.


The school will be taught in English. Most likely start of this school will be in the spring of 2023.
