INSTITUTE OF THE FIVE-FOLD MINISTRY
Bishop Apostle Dr. Zella Berry Case
Called by Christ as an apostle, chosen, ordained, and elected into the office of the bishopric, born to serve, given an internal insight, (prophetic), and possess the gift of a visionary.
(I first must give Christ the honor and glory for entrusting me with all that He has placed in my hands).
Bishop Apostle Dr. Case is married to Suffragan Bishop Martin W. Case, a marriage of 41 years, and out of that marriage, they have two children and four grandchildren.
For the last 20 years, I have, with the assistance of the Holy Spirit prepared myself to open a prophetic school of the Five-Fold Ministry, which in the beginning was named (MOP) Ministry of Preparation and at a later date became ARIZE Institute of the Five-Fold Ministry for those that have been called by Christ into the Five-Fold Ministry.
In preparation for Arize, Institute of the Five-Fold Ministry, I have earned several degrees in Ministry. I hold a BA in Theology, (BTH) a Masters in Christian Education (MCE), and a Masters in Divinity (M.Div). I was honored in 2016 with an Honorary Doctor Degree in Divinity, Although honored I ultimately was not satisfied with an Honorary Doctorate Degree, therefore, I matriculated forward and earned a Doctorate in Ministry from Apex School of Theology, (2019).
My philosophy is for all the saints who are in agreement with the Apostle Paul's message given in 2nd TIMOTHY 2:15 to "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." This I believe and trust that anyone who enters the economy of Christ must study day in and day out to lead the saints of God into the maturity in the Word of God and how one should and must behave in society, demonstrating their burning in spreading the "Good News."
In order to rightly divide the Word of God, I believe that everybody must study with someone that has matured in wisdom in specific areas and also with those that are anointed and gifted within the Five-Fold Ministry to train and develop others in the same said gifting.
As a Doctor of Ministry, I believe that if it is not in the book (the Bible) information concerning the ministry of God should not be reported to students that you train. "The Bible is our road map.".
Behind every pioneer and visionary, there is a team, and I am about unification and being a team player. Being a team player is the only manner in which I operate. The Five-Fold Ministry gifts are gifts given by Christ to those that are in unison with one another. They have relationships with one another. They don't work against one another, they work together for the common cause of perfecting the saints and building up the Church of God.
Lastly, it is my goal to train and assist in developing anyone who is willing to study the Word of God, work on exchanging the ways of the world for the ways of Christ with splendor and joy, and follow push towards grasping His directions for any ministry assignment that is handed to them by Christ. If I can do it, so can you.
Let's get busy being obedient!
