In this episode, I explore the Evangelist as “Host” by looking at the story of Lydia from the early church and identifying the three main practices of Hosts as they pursue restoration in the neighborhood.
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
