Why Brown’s confession about USCAL proves him to be an Apostle in the NAR.

Despite providing ample evidence of his involvement in the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) and NARpostolic office, Dr. Michael Brown has persisted in engaging in classic NAR rhetoric, attempting to destroy the credibility of those demonstrating his obvious association. Doing everything in his power to deny his apostolic involvement in the New Apostolic Reformation, Michael Brown portrays those who exposed the NAR as ‘unhinged conspirators’. CWC has thoroughly documented incriminating evidence of his involvement as a NARpostle in the NAR:

What Michael Brown is hiding from his audience (Part 1): Attacking Christian authors; contends for NAR gospel
What Michael Brown is hiding from his audience (Part 2): Damning 2010 audio proving Brown’s knowledge & involvement in the NAR.
What Michael Brown is hiding from his audience (Part 3): Timeline of Brown’s involvement in NAR ministry 1987-2001.
What Michael Brown is hiding from his audience (Part 4): Timeline proving Brown’s apostleship in NAR ministry 2001 to now.

In Part 4, we documented Brown’s recognition as an apostle by C. Peter Wagner at Wagner Leadership Institute and his recognition as an apostle by Wagner’s USCAL. In this article, we will ignore his involvement as an apostle in C. Peter Wagner’s Wagner Leadership Institute (WLI) and focus on his confession to being a member of the ‘United States Coalition of Apostolic Leaders’. We simply let Michael Brown talk openly about being involved in Joseph Mattera’s ‘United States Coalition of Apostolic Leaders’.

As everyone is aware, C. Peter Wagner was the apostolic ‘guru’ who led the global New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) cult. Not only was he responsible for the International Coalition of Apostles (ICA) – he was responsible for its national coalitions across the world, such as the United States Coalition of Apostolic Leaders (USCAL). But before tackling USCAL’s history, we need to look at what ICA’s apostles were establishing a decade or two before. This article will point out the fact that on both ICAL and USCAL’s websites, they are theologically identical in their agenda for promoting purely New Apostolic Reformation apostles.

By confessing he is a member of the USCAL, Michael Brown is actually admitting he is an NAR Apostle, is part of the NAR and is recognized by other NARpostles as being a NARpostle himself. Let’s look at what ICA and ICAL have to say about what it means to be a member of this national coalition of apostolic leaders.

HISTORY OF ICA – ADVANCING THE KINGDOM OF GOD ON EARTH

It is worth examining the language of John Paul Kelly when he talks about the establishing of the NAR’s ICA. To begin, on his own website he claims (emphasis ours):

“He is also the Founder and International Convening Apostle of ICAL (International Coalition of Apostolic Leaders) is currently the largest known Christian society of God-ordained and man-recognized apostolic leaders in the world.

Source: Source: John Paul Kelly, About John P. Kelly, John P. Kelly, https://johnpkelly.org/bio/, Accessed Apr 27, 2018.) [Archived]

He continues elsewhere on this page (emphasis added):

“During the 1990s, Apostle Kelly and other prominent apostles were acutely aware of the need to unite and strengthen leaders in the emerging apostolic movement. In Singapore in 1999, during one of these discussions, he was chosen to establish International Coalition of Apostles (ICA) as a vehicle to advance the Kingdom of God on earth.”

Unlike biblical Christianity, the NAR are all about ‘advancing’ or ‘expanding’ the kingdom or dominion of God. In this case, Kelly was chosen by a select number of apostles to establish the ICA as ‘a vehicle’ to advance the kingdom of God. This is how their end-times dominion theology works – they want people to be ‘kingdom’ minded so that the ‘The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ’ (Revelation 11:15).

John Paul Kelly was the convening Apostle of ICA from 1999-2001. C. Peter Wagner was the convening Apostle from 2001-2009. And from 2009 onwards, John Paul Kelly was again appointed to be the convening Apostle. At a 2010 Annual November Meeting, Dr. Wagner was installed as the Presiding Apostle Emeritus of ICAL and John P. Kelly as the International Convening Apostle. In 2013, they changed their name from International Coalition of Apostles (ICA) to International Coalition of Apostolic Leaders (ICAL). [Source]

HISTORY OF USCAL – ADVANCING THE KINGDOM OF GOD ON EARTH

In 2014, NAR Apostle Jennifer LeClaire wrote about the history of ICA/ICAL and the formation of USCAL (emphasis added):

“The ICAL was conceived in Singapore in 1999 by a group of international apostolic leaders. John Kelly was appointed the leader of the new initiative. After two years, Kelly asked C. Peter Wagner to become the lead convener of the movement. In 2009, on the eve of his 80th birthday, Wagner was directed by the Lord to ask Kelly to again assume the role of Convening Apostolic leader over ICAL. During the past two years, Kelly has focused on launching autonomous apostolic coalitions in every nation affiliated with this movement.”

Source: Jennifer LeClaire, US Apostolic Council of Leaders Forms to Advance Kingdom, Charisma News, Published June 26, 2014. (Accessed April 21, 2018.)

Although USCAL was launched on June 2014 (source), it is reported USCAL was officially launched in November 2014 (source). The above insight from LeClaire is important: “Kelly focused on launching autonomous apostolic coalitions in every nation affiliated with this movement.

As we all know, John Paul Kelly is the ‘International Convening Apostle of ICAL’ – his good friend Joseph Mattera is now the National Convening Apostle of USCAL. But how did Mattera get this role? Did he self-appoint himself into this apostolic role or was he apostolically commissioned by ICAL?

This is what is said on the ICAL website (emphasis ours):

“In 2014, Apostle Mattera was commissioned as the Convenor of The United States Coalition of Apostolic Leaders (USCAL), an affiliate with ICAL.  In 2015, Apostle Dale Bronner became the Associate Convenor.  The role of Convenors is to call the members together for regional summits and advance the 4 R Vision:  Restoration of the church, Reconciliation, Revival and Reformation.  USCAL has several hundred members throughout the United States.”

Source: United States Coalition (USCAL), ICAL, https://www.icaleaders.com/united-states/, Accessed Apr 27, 2018. [Archived]

What can we conclude when we draw from the information provided by these NARpostles? Is it wrong to conclude that the International Convening ICAL Apostle Kelly commissioned Mattera to be the National Convening USCAL Apostle? It appears to be a legitimate conclusion.

Furthermore, while ICAL is a coalition for international apostles, USCAL is exactly the same except it’s a coalition that focuses on apostles within a specific nation.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ICAL AND USCAL?

As USCAL states on their ‘About Us’ page,

“The United States Coalition of Apostolic Leaders is emerging from the International Coalition of Apostolic Leaders (ICAL)… USCAL has been formed to connect the wisdom and resources of its 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.”

And just like ICAL, USCAL believe their leaders to be legitimate apostles:

“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.”

Source: About USCAL, http://www.uscal.us/about-uscal/, Accessed April 04, 2018. [Archived]

Theologically there is no difference from the New Apostolic Reformation’s ICAL organisation. The ICAL and USCAL missions and structures are the same. Even their semantics prove this. Nonetheless, what we are seeing is that USCAL is under the greater apostolic authority of ICAL.

  • Both the vision of ICAL and the vision of USCAL is the ‘4 R Vision’
  • Both claim to be ‘Apostolically Lead – Prophetically Influenced’
  • Both their websites mirror their heretical dogmatism in dictating and controlling the culture under their apostolic authority all under the premise of ‘advancing the kingdom’.

The only difference is that ICAL is international while USCAL is global. This is because USCAL is only one segment of hundreds of ICAL national coalitions. Presently on their website (April 30 2018), ICAL writes (emphasis added):

“ICAL Convenors within a Nation or Ambassadors for a Nation are represented in this section… ICAL relates to over 70 nations that are represented within the Nation by a National Convenor or with an Ambassador commissioned by ICAL to represent a nation or region. View the Resources Section for more understanding about the ICAL AIM Coalition Strategy.

The Annual International Congress provides a powerful time for the Convenors,  Ambassadors, and their guests to hear current issues and advancements in their nations. Networking, fellowship, and strategic meetings highlight each member’s time at these Family Gatherings.

Members and their guests are encouraged to attend the 2018 Annual Congress in Dallas, Texas on November 6, 7, 8 for the Full Congress.   National Convenors, Ambassadors, and New Members meet on November 5.”

Theme for 2018: Advancing Apostolic Leadership

In conclusion, we provide archived links just to show how infested the global church is with the NAR cult. But before we end, we want to highlight why Convening Apostles or Ambassadors of other national apostolic coalitions (like Joseph Mattera) are to be represented at the ‘Annual International Congress’.

THE PROOF THAT ICAL AND USCAL ARE NAR & PROMOTING THE NAR AGENDA

If you follow the link (ICAL AIM Coalition Strategy) in the above quote, you will come across ICA asking the question:

“The first question people ask me regarding ICAL National Coalitions is, “What’s the purpose of creating them?” Usually that’s followed with, “What are we trying to achieve?””

They then introduce everyone to the ‘AIM Strategy’:

“AIM is an acronym for Acknowledge, Instruct and Measure.

A = Acknowledge. National Coalitions provide a forum where apostles acknowledge one another.
I = Instruct. National Coalitions provide common instruction on apostolic ministry.
M = Measure. National Coalitions provide a minimum standard by which apostles are measured.”

The second point (Instruct) is expanded and needs to be stressed (emphasis ours):

“As a message is brought forth through our presiding apostle, apostolic council, esteemed teachers and resident prophets, it can be assimilated down to the smallest elements of our movement by the National Coalitions. Members of ICA can serve the leadership of National Coalitions by coming to their nations, regions and cities and conducting conferences and seminars under the banner of ICA. . This consistency of teaching worldwide will accomplish our next task… “

This means that the National Coalitions have no influence over ICAL, the ICAL Council and those in ICAL are to serve the National Coalitions “by coming to their nations, regions and cities and conducting conferences and seminars under the banner of ICA.” And what does ICAL claim the next task is? To “MEASURE Apostles with a Common Standard,” discerning who is a true or false apostle.

This means they are still working with C. Peter Wagner’s definition of ‘apostle’. This is disgraceful considering USCAL is nothing more than a puppet of ICA/ICAL. And with Dr. Michael Brown being a member, this is what we find ‘ticking under the hood’ of Michael Brown’s USCAL organisation (emphasis ours):

“ICAL has an existing standard that needs to be consistently applied to those claiming to be (or called to be) apostles. That standard includes meeting the Biblical qualifications of an apostle as defined by ICAL, recognition from at least one other established apostle and the testimony of at least three legitimate ministries that look to the person for apostolic covering.

These minimum standards represent an excellent measurement that could be consistently applied by leaders worldwide. As National Coalitions are established, the leaders who know one another best are the most qualified to apply and evaluate these requirements on a case by case basis. This is why it is vital that existing members of ICAL find ways of creating National Coalitions in nations, regions and cities around the world. The AIM Strategy can help make this happen as we endeavor to bring legitimacy to the New Apostolic Reformation.”

Now we know why the USCAL website claims all their apostles are “legitimate apostolic leaders.”

They have been following ICAL’s AIM Strategy. And according to ICAL and USCAL, these apostles recognize Michael Brown as an NAR Apostle and Michael Brown has no problem being a member.

Michael Brown has been a part of USCAL for around four years. As much as he claims he is not an apostle or claims he does not believe he himself is an apostle – we now know that he would have had to be screened by USCAL using ICAL’s ‘AIM Strategy’ to confirm his apostolic legitimacy. His very membership in USCAL confirms that he does see himself as an apostle.

Brown is NAR
