Can I succeed like others have? What do I need to do? How do I go about it? What if I don't have the gifts necessary to do something great?  The wonderful truth revealed in Scripture is that God uses ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary feats, especially when they say, "Yes, Lord" to the destiny He has prepared for them!

Only one gift list in the New Testament attaches a promised result!

It is truly interesting to me that of all the various lists of gifts given in the New Testament, only one of them includes a promise concerning what will happen if you utilize the gifts in the list. That list is found in Ephesians 4:7-11 and the promise is that we can come to maturity (Eph. 4:13) by honoring the counsel and input from a multi-gifted team of people with five different heart motivations.

By making sure you have input from several people who demonstrate the heart motivations which underlie the five-fold team, you make better decisions and you succeed more often!

The five heart motivations (voices) we must hear from are:

  1. The voice of divine creativity;
  2. The voice of unending love for people;
  3. The voice which passionately seeks out truth;
  4. The voice which insists we must share the good news;
  5. The voice which ensures that all of the above voices are heard, honored and flowing together in unison.

These voices come from the hearts of the prophet, the pastor, the teacher, the evangelist and the apostle. To learn more about these gifts and how they express themselves in a variety of situations, we recommend that you also study our book Gifted to Succeed.

Maximize Your Success by Honoring the Gifts of Those Around You!

You will become much more successful by learning to surround yourself with fivefold teams. When you draw out the input from everyone on your team, you receive a variety of perspectives and a much better overall revelation of how to move forward effectively in whatever area you are pursuing.

Even though this book is written and applied primarily toward leading a church through a fivefold team, you can apply this fivefold team concept to each of the following situations:

  • Projects you are working on
  • Challenges you are facing
  • Business decisions
  • Family decisions
  • Personal decisions

How to Get the Most Out of This Teaching

The DVD and CD (or Video download and MP3) share the key idea of the How to Build a Winning Team book. For maximum growth and internalization, we recommend utilizing the book and CD/DVD set.

For even greater results, draw together some friends or coworkers into a group to watch the DVD and read and discuss the book. It is 12 chapters long, so you could do one chapter a week for 12 weeks. There are application exercises at the end of each chapter as well as 26 Application Worksheets to be completed which will assist you in applying the principles being discussed.

Discuss together the heart motivations of the various people in the group, and begin drawing out the gifts of each person as you make decisions together. (This works for a family, cell group, church leadership team, and company business executives.) The DVD brings an anointed trainer to your group who shares the heart revelation of a fivefold team of consultants. Your interpersonal sharing gives you instant feedback and confirmation that you truly are beginning to function as a team! An unbeatable combination.

Our Unique Gifts Make Winning Teams Package adds the book Gifted to Succeed to the How to Build Winning Teams Package. This book provides a foundation which you will want as you seek to create winning teams, so we highly recommend you order the package Unique Gifts Make Winning Teams if you don't already own Gifted to Succeed. This way you will have all the tools necessary to fully succeed in internalizing this message.

The Virkler Grid -- A Comparative Analysis of the Foundational Offices of Ephesians 4:11 

The reason I'm writing, Mark, is to congratulate you for your excellent work in the “Fivefold Ministry Summary.”  This is not only brilliant, but it is extremely useful….

In my opinion, this should have a wide circulation. How about making a free-standing version of it with the title “The Virkler Grid” and with a subtitle “A Comparative Analysis of the Foundational Offices of Ephesians 4:11?”
 
I would expect that you will see it popping up all over the place since there is nothing else like it.  The Virkler Grid could end up being a standard tool for the whole apostolic movement in years to come.

Testimonies from those who have experienced How to Build a Winning Team

This last week I ordered a bunch of the material from your catalog. I am devouring them!! I have been having a truly WOW experience all week. 

The BEST was my encounter with the How to Build a Winning Team book. For years I have felt like a crazy person because I have perceived in my spirit that the Lord had something different in His Heart and Mind concerning how the Body is to function...Your book confirmed all that I have had in my heart for years. I really consider this week of my life to be a major deliverance because now I know that I am not crazy. I believe that there are sooo many of the body members that are suffering because they feel that something just isn't right, but are shamed into believing it is their problem. I feel that the magnitude of this problem is very similar to when Martin Luther was raised up to bring deliverance to the Lord's people. I am praying for your voice and the voice of others to be heard so that the people can be free and the Lord's heart and mind will be manifest in His Church. I believe that it is time for another "95 Theses" to be nailed to the door.

Hearing God Through Biblical Meditation

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 179 Pages | $15.99 retail list price

For many years I studied the Bible incorrectly, and it produced death rather than life. Even though I had a knowledge of the Scriptures, I did not personally experience the life and the realities they revealed. The Bible calls this the ministry of death, rather than the ministry of righteousness (2 Cor. 3:6–9). Upon coming out of Bible college, I found myself just like the apostle Paul, attacking those who disagreed with my theology.

How Do You Know?

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 180 Pages

How do you know? What is the process you use to discover truth? I did not ask that question during the first 25 years of my life. I used eleven different methods for discovering truth including: if my parents said so, then it was so. If my teacher said it was so, then it was so. If my pastor said it was so, then it was so. If my theology said it was so, then it was so. I have discarded them all and adopted a twelfth method, which is in harmony with what the Bible teaches. We teach you this method in this book.

How to Walk by the Spirit

How to Walk by the Spirit

by Mark and Patti Virkler | 136 Pages | Previous name "Sense Your Spirit"

Are you like many western Christians who have been taught little about how to sense their spirits? Do you have trouble even defining what spirit sensations feel like within you, much less recognizing them? This training was birthed from Mark’s passion to live out of his spirit, and thus release the anointing of God. The problem he faced was lack of clear biblical definition as to what his spirit felt like. So Mark looked up every verse in the Bible on heart and spirit.
