A unique book addressing the biblical requirement forapostles and their role in shaping today's church infathering leaders and motivating mission.
One of the sad factors of church life is that many pastors are lonely.Although some pride themselves on their independence, many longfor accountable relationships. In particular, their heart cry is for afathering style of relationship, where they can be cared for pastorally,as well as mentored in the development of gifts and practical skills fortheir ministry.
Sadly there are few 'fathers' in ministry. But in the New Testament,one of the ways in which an apostle served churches was as a fatheror older brother. Giving wise counsel with relationship, the apostlescarried a sense of responsibility in prayer and care for the churchesthat they had planted. It is in this 'fathering' context, that David Devenishcontends that the role of the apostle needs to be restored. Thisgroundbreaking book will help equip emerging apostles and encouragethem to develop their gift in planting churches, reaching previouslyunreached people groups and transforming culture in cities andnations, whilst still maintaining the biblical emphasis on family relationships,particularly the continuing need for fathers.
What is an apostle? And how should this biblical role function in the church of today?

David Devenish, a longstanding leader within the Newfrontiers movement, has many years' experience of working with churches in the UK and in other cultures around the world. Now he distills what he has seen, done and learned into a thoughtful reflection on the biblical patterns of apostolic ministry and contemporary practice. For anyone seeking to understand and appreciate the place of apostolic ministry in today's church worldwide, this is an invaluable guide
