Apostolate Overview

The role of the Apostolate for leadership focuses on our vocation as "sent ones" to announce, embody, and demonstrate the Gospel to the skeptics, the curious, and the seekers.

As with the other Kaleo focuses, the Apostolate has a staggered two-year track.

The framework for this year of the Apostolate focuses on three large ideas:

  • Translating the Gospel (does it makes sense?)

  • Clarifying Faith (do I believe it?)

  • Calling to Christ (will I choose it?

We’ll examine what it means to represent Christ to others and how to model faith for skeptics, inquirers, and seekers.

Stories communicate truths that span many cultures. Most people won’t understand E=MC2 but most people can understand a story about a person who stole their neighbour’s goat. We’ll look at what makes a good story and how to share the Gospel through narrative.
