Release the APE is all about activating the Apostolic, Prophetic, and Evangelistic vocations into the world. We are committed to telling real time APE stories, sharing thoughts that shape the APE, and encouraging believers to live into APE vocations so that all the potential for God movements can be unleashed everywhere.
You may know A.P.E.S.T. from Alan Hirsch's books & teaching. That's where the APE comes from. Who should read the blog? Here's their list
- If you have a deep passion for ministry but you never saw yourself as a traditional pastor and don’t desire to be one.
- If you are a pastor and love it, but want to engage further material about releasing catalytic leaders in and out of your church.
- If you love challenging the status quo in Jesus name.
- If you love starting things for God
- If you have a deep sense for justice (hello prophetic leaders)
- if you love seeing people come to faith (we will have lots of conversion stories)
- if you feel alone in your mission and need inspiration and community
- if you love the missional church movement
- if you believe that the mission of God should and can be carried out by every day ordinary people.
- if you are crazy about seeing that happen too
- If you want mentors and friends who will push you to risk, try, and do things in Jesus name you thought you never could do!
I align with several camps: I'm baptist. I'm reformed. I'm missional. Etc. This looks like a good site for the missional camp to engage, so I'll be reading. Would love to know what you think about their site as the first couple of posts have gone up: "Release the Apostolic, Prophetic, Evangelistic" Part 1 & Part 2. Also check them out on Twitter, Facebook.
