Episode 37: Apostle as Cultivator | The Neighborhood Restorers (RePlacing APEST, 2 of 6)

The RePlacing Church Podcast with Ben Katt

In this episode, I explore the Apostle as “Cultivator” by looking at the story of Priscilla and Aquila from the early church and identifying the three main practices of Cultivators as they pursue restoration in the neighborhood.
Series Summary: In Ephesians 4, the Apostle Paul mentions 5 gifts for the church – Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Shepherd, and Teacher (APEST). Over the past decade of missional church and church planting conversations, Alan Hirsch, Mike Breen, J.R. Woodward and others have done some good work towards expanding our understanding of these “Ministries,” “Equippers,” or “Intelligences.” But what do we learn about these gifts when we replace APEST, when we explore what these 5 gifts look like in the neighborhood?

    Hey, I love the thoughts. We have been working through what Apostolic drive and grace looks like in every day life and community. This is really practical 🙂
