Recently, I remembered that circle and decided to design a similar image as a teaching tool. On coffee shop napkins or office whiteboards, I draw this image to represent the five-fold ministry of Jesus and His body. As I draw the diagram this is how I often explain it.
Today we are going to zombie-proof your missional calling and help you navigate 5Q where you work. At the same time, we are going to show you how to get practical with some of the tables that you find in the 5Q book. Once you get familiar with the shapes of APEST, the core characteristics, you begin to see them functioning all around you.
After an amazing run with real reader reviews and some amazing guest posts, this week we wanted to return to the source and take a deeper look into a question that we run into quite often as we begin our favorite part of 5Q: Equipping and Training the Local Church.
This week, Jon Ritner, Pastor of Ecclesia Hollywood and L.A. Forge Trainer, helps us navigate 5Q through some important waters. One common issue with engaging new paradigms is simply how to move beyond the theory and put it into practice. Today, Jon shares with us how he is using 5Q to create an APEST culture in his home.
