TAPE – Kitchen Contest

About the Project

Pastor Ricky Pillay put forth the idea of creating an event that highlights the 5 fold ministry in a fun way. Thereby emphasizing its use in the context of our daily jobs and how these personality types interact. Thus began the journey in Mervin Govender crafting “TAP²E Kitchen Contest”

Teams compete against each other in front of a live, participating audience. The team that sells the most starters & desserts while being judged on a variety of other factors, wins the prize at the end.

The 5 fold ministry (T.A.P.P.E), applied to the work environment:

  • Teachers – Training & Development
  • Apostles – Innovators
  • Prophets – Administrators
  • Pastors – Customer Service /Caregivers
  • Evangelists – Sales

The scripture:

Psalm 68:18(KJV)

Thou hast ascended on high, thou hast led captivity captive: thou hast received gifts for men; yea, for the rebellious also, that the Lord God might dwell among them.

Ephesians 4:7-12 (KJV)

7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. 8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. 9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
