Check out this great video
Apostle Mike is committed to following Christ and to carrying out His mandate to lay the foundation and establish the end time body of spirit-filled transformed Believers, establish the five fold ministry operation and to fulfill His great commission to the world. In order for this mandate to be fully functional, the Ephesians 4:11 ministry must be fully activated and implemented in the church.
Ephesians 4:11-12 KJVS And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
Mike is the oldest child of the late Jack C. and Berdese Holden Mangum. He was raised in rural eastern North Caroling by His mother‘s parents after they were killed in a car accident as they headed to a military assignment at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro, NC.
Mike has over 30 years of church and Pastoral experience. The first three years of his pastoral ministry was to a denominational church. During this time, Mike began to study the word of God more fervently, as if God himself was calling Him to come deeper in Him. God began to deal with him about the Holy Spirit, healing, miracles and the five fold ministry found in Ephesian 4:11. God made him very intuitive about the things he was seeing in scriptures and wondering why they were not happening in the church that he belonged. So he asked God to show him and teach Him how to help people who are hurting. God introduced him to a Wednesday afternoon Bible Study of mostly pastors of all denominations. In the bible study, there were huge discussions on the very things that he was praying and studying about. He met two former pastors of the same denominational churches he belonged to who became spirit-filled Pentecostal pastor. After hearing of signs and wonders going on in their churches, Mike asked the Lord to filll him with the Holy Ghost and He did with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
Because Mike knew very little about the move and operation of the Spirit, he submitted himself to a pastor and a spirit-filled church. Later, he became the pastor of that same church.
After experiencing some of life's challenges, Mike thought his ministry was over, but after a two year Sabbactical and while in prayer, the Lord spoke to him about a prophecy he received 20 years earlier concerning the apostlic ministry and church planting. God spoke to him to plant a church in Burlington, NC to draw people out of darkness and establish them in the word of God, helping them to become mature in the things fo God, and to participate in the privileges that God has afforded them through the death and burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. God mandated that Mike raise up five fold ministers of the gospel to mature the church and reach the world for Christ.
Apostle Mike operates strongly under the apostolic/prophetic anointing. He brings to the church a keen understanding of people’s placement and God's divine order for the local church. From Apostle Mike, you will hear the message of prosperity and hear the prophetic flowing from his lips as he sets order in the local assembly.
