Ephesians 4:11?

I have a question regarding Ephesians 4:11. In the Greek, is the "gave"
in this verse a continuing action, or a one-time act.

The question behind the question is: can this verse be used to support
the idea of a present-day five-fold ministry? Or did the church at one
time have apostles and people ministering in the office of apostle, but
currently we have evangelists, pastors and teachers?
