The United States Coalition of Apostolic Leaders has emerged from the International Coalition of Apostolic Leaders (ICAL) which was conceived in Singapore in 1999 by a group of apostolic leaders that discussed how God could use the combined efforts of global apostolic leadership to advance the Kingdom of God more rapidly and effectively.
In order to accomplish the mission, establishing a communication center would be essential. During the discussion, John P. Kelly was asked to assume leadership as Presiding Leader for the new coalition and to establish an office in Fort Worth, Texas. He was directed to organize a council and to begin inviting apostles to join the ICAL fellowship network. The first Annual Meeting was held near Dallas, Texas in 2000.
USCAL has been formed to connect the wisdom and resources of it’s members so that each member can function more strategically, combine their efforts nationally, and effectively accelerate the advancement of the Kingdom of God into every sphere of US society.
Mission of USCAL
USCAL is designed 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.
Structure of USCAL
We are primarily a professional society in which legitimate apostolic leaders are able to relate and connect with each other. It is secondarily a training ground for “emerging” apostolic leaders.
We introduce creative strategies apostolic leaders can utilize in order to fulfill Jesus’ great commission and mandates.
We believe that autonomy is important for members of differing apostolic networks and business leaders. Leaders of networks and or associations often have few mechanisms designed to fulfill their need to connect and relate with their peers horizontally. USCAL provides this important venue of opportunity.
That being said, our gatherings promote a structure of meaningful peer-level relationships amongst apostolic leaders, representing both the nuclear and marketplace church. We believe it is essential for us to build relationships, and exchange wisdom, knowledge, skills, and resources we also utilize available technology: Internet, blogs, online videos, etc., to facilitate written communication and live interaction among leaders and their networks.
Our members are committed to maintaining the highest possible levels of integrity regarding personal character and operational methodology among its members. 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 (Psalm 133:1, Eph.4:3). This does not mean “oversight.” USCAL does not ordain or give oversight to individuals or groups of apostolic leaders.
Regional Summits & Conferences
The Convener leads apostolic summits throughout the United States. These are open meetings for apostolic leaders or emerging apostolic leaders; not restricted to USCAL members only.
The Annual Meeting, Regional Summits and Conferences are listed under Events on this website.
