Apostolic Leaders And The Houses They Build
INTRODUCTION: All leaders are called to the apostolic in their work and vision. We have an apostolic calling to build apostolic churches that fulfill apostolic mission. Every apostolic leader is a builder. In Hebrews 3:1-6 we see Moses and Jesus as the model builders we are to follow. Paul the Apostle was a builder. Moses the apostle was a builder.
