A unique book addressing the biblical requirement for apostles and their role in shaping today’s church in fathering 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 long for accountable relationships. In particular, their heart cry is for a fathering style of relationship, where they can be cared for pastorally, as well as mentored in the development of gifts and practical skills for their 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 father or older brother. Giving wise counsel with relationship, the apostles carried a sense of responsibility in prayer and care for the churches that they had planted. It is in this ‘fathering’ context, that David Devenish contends that the role of the apostle needs to be restored. This groundbreaking book will help equip emerging apostles and encourage them to develop their gifting in planting churches, reaching previously un-reached people groups and transforming culture in cities and nations, whilst still maintaining the biblical emphasis on family relationships, particularly the continuing need for fathers.
