“Jesus appointed twelve, whom he also named apostles.” ~ John 20:21
The Bible describes a natural growth and maturing of our relationship as followers of Jesus. As we are drawn to and invited into his ministry we serve as disciples: learning from him, growing deeper spiritually, living into the ways and teachings of the Teacher. As disciples we are prepared for ministry in our own right, individually and communally. We become apostles, the “sent ones” of God. In this time we embrace our true identity and calling as apostles, sent by God in the name of Christ into living ministry in God’s world.
