Ricardo Equips Apostolic Leaders, (R.E.A.L)©

Hello, my name is Ricardo Butler.

I’m here because I am passionate about helping to equip maturing married men in ministry or church leaders who are called to or are already functioning in the Five Fold Ministry, especially those called specifically to function within the Apostolic who lack the help, tools, wisdom, and experience to fully realize their potential in the apostolic ministry.

I know what it is like to not have a mentor or spiritual father help you to understand your calling. I know what it is like to seek help or the know-how to carry out your apostolic mandate. I know what it is like to lack the tools or experience to able to train and equip the church for their calling.

That is why I am here to help you…

  • Have your own ministry that helps others by raising others up as your own spiritual sons and daughters in the Lord
  • Establish God’s Kingdom within the hearts of His people
  • Impart to others your anointing, mandate, and mantle
  • Set up a training center for believers to get the training they need in whatever five-fold ministry gift they have or any other ministry gifting
  • Empowered leaders and youth who make an impact in their communities and abroad, affecting cities and impacting nations
  • Gain more insight and wisdom so that you will have a clearer path and understanding of what God has called you to do
  • Seek God more for strategies to pour into those who make themselves available
  • Perfect the saints for the work of the ministry and the edifying of the body of Christ

It wasn’t long ago that I was struggling with my apostolic calling, forget that fact that it took me a long time to accept the truth that apostles existed today. Back then I fought with God that the apostles were only in the Bible. That was one of the mindset struggles I had.

Some of the other issues for me was finding any apostles today who could explain it. I didn’t know of any. I thought I was the only one being called to this. In our Google age, I searched the world wide web for anything that I could find. It was like there was a “church within the church.” It was like a secret part of the Kingdom of God that was not revealed to me. Apostles were here today! The evidence and truth of Christ still calling them were all over the Scriptures. Some of the apostles I found were really prideful and like religious bullies. They were cold, unloving and distant. I almost gave up until I found Apostle Tim Early (RIP). He helped me balance this gift out and set it in order. He helped me to become a real apostle and do real apostolic works!

Then I discovered a way to excel in my apostolic call. It was in the Word of God all along. Most call it discipleship, but the buzz word everywhere was spiritual fathering. Jesus the Chief Apostle told His 12 apostles that they would do greater works than Him. Within a short time, they grew by leaps and bound within only 3 years. And through Apostle Tim Early and other apostolic mentors, he recommended that I should learn from greatly accelerate in my apostolic calling.

It hasn’t always been easy. I have run into problems like that are common to all apostles in the past, present, and probably until the Lord comes back. Problems like pride, lack of finances, spiritual opposition, human opposition, balancing family, work, and ministry, acceptance from the larger church world, etc.

Now I more focused, my life is more in order, my priorities are straight. I know who I belong to, who I am, and what I am called to do. And when you have all these things that God wants you to have in place, there is a genuine peace that passes all understanding and human comprehension. This allows you to function freely without fear and with hope, confidence, and patience in the Lord that He will work all things out according to His own eternal plans that He has created before the foundations of the world were laid.

I was so excited I shared this with my previous students turned spiritual sons and daughters who now stand as fully mature apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists, and pastors in the Lord. The results were …

  • Me becoming a spiritual or apostolic father to them as Apostle Tim Early was for me.
  • Taking all that God has made me and given me and putting it all together as a useful blueprint for others to follow.
  • Developing Apostolic and Five Fold Ministry training and equipping in mindset, manhood, message, ministry, and mandate.
  • Apostolic wisdom that allows me to build multipliable foundations in many areas of apostolic ministry: from marriage to ministry, from raising natural/spiritual children to leadership development.

And now I want to help you to get the same results and more. The first step is simple. If you or another leader you know is hitting the wall on how to successfully fulfill your Leadership responsibility within the family, army, & government of God with the measure of the grace that God has given you, I can help you.

Apostolic Mandate

MY MISSION STATEMENT – “Equipping Apostolic Leaders to raise up teams of Five Fold Ministry Leaders and spiritual parents in the home, ministry, and marketplace!”

MY APOSTOLIC MANDATE Christ has called me to identify, equip, and release emerging potential Leaders into their Kingdom appointed Five Fold Ministry assignments while imparting Faith, Hope, and LOVE in the process so that they will be able to unite, mature, equip, and release the Body of Christ into their ministry and inheritance that the Father has given to the Body of Christ to advance the Kingdom and Glory of the Father throughout the nations.

MY CALLING My name is Ricardo Butler and I’m passionate about helping and equipping emerging Five Fold Ministry Leaders to be strategic, creative, artistic, innovative, entrepreneurial, and cutting edge problem solving Spiritual Parents and to understand how to greatly increase the Family of God’s impact in its work for the Kingdom of God so that Body of Christ in all regions result in tangible fruit in God’s Garden! If you or another leader you know is hitting the wall on how to successfully fulfill your Leadership responsibility within the family, army, & government of God with the measure of the grace that God has given you, I can help you.

WHAT DO I ACTUALLY DO? [THE MISSION] – I equip five fold ministry leaders to be strategic, creative, artistic, innovative, entrepreneurial, and cutting edge problem solving spiritual parents in the home, ministry, and marketplace!

WHY I DO WHAT I DO? [THE PURPOSE] – Because I do not want God’s people to go through the pain of dealing with false/bad leadership. It’s a passion for me to be a different kind of leader and to equip leaders to be different as light, salt, humble, loving wise servant leaders. The house of God is in great lack of spiritual parents. While serving as an elder is good and being a godly five fold equipping ministry leader is great, God wants us to take it a step further. He wants us to not only reach, lead, and feed; He wants us to parent His children with the same heart after His own!

HOW DO I DO IT? [THE VISION] – I equip leaders through blog posts, newsletters, e-Books, audiobooks, podcasts, training courses, coaching, consulting, group equipping, life-on-life communion, mentoring, and spiritual fathering!

WHO AM I CALLED TO REACH? [TARGET AUDIENCE] – I am called to target Apostles who do not oversee any local churches, Prophets where no one hears or listens to you, Teachers with no disciples/students, Pastors who lead no flock, and Evangelists who do not draw in large crowds to witness to.
