Relating to Apostolic Ministry

Today I had coffee with Pastor Jeff Little from Milestone Church. He gave me a thought about apostolic ministry that I have been thinking about all day. He said there are two things that interest pastors when it comes to relating to the apostolic.

  • The first thing is the ability to grow their church or ministry. Everyone wants to feel successful and in our culture today that means growth!
  • The second thing he said was pastors are looking to be pastored. Pastors want to feel like they have someone they can turn to when they have trouble in their lives or need some good old-fashioned wisdom. I believe these two things make up the bulk, if not all, of the relationship between apostolic giftings and and the shepherds they are burdened to serve.
