We want our students to know God intimately and be transformed by Him. We want our students to connect authentically with each other and their leaders. We want our leaders to experience community with each other and be transformed as a result of their serving. We accomplish this through gatherings on Sunday morning and evening, in relationships during the week and through retreats and events throughout the year.
Women’s Ministry at Apostles helps women of all ages and every walk of life grow in their faith and forge lasting friendships. We do this through special events, ongoing studies and purposeful relationships. Meet and Treat is a chance to be paired with a different woman each month to have coffee, lunch or walk together, and slowly get to know ladies at Apostles. Each year we have a Bible study that meets during the week. Women learn biblical truth in a large group format and then gather in small groups to pray and discuss practical application. Through our nine-month mentoring program, women of different ages are paired together in order ‘teach what is good’ and walk more faithfully with Christ in their daily lives (Titus 2:3-5). Finally, women regularly gather at one-off events and an annual retreat to strengthen relationships, make new friendships and be encouraged in their faith.
We were made for relationships. Community Groups make lifelong friends out of strangers and encourage growth in Christ. We have groups made up of couples, families, men, women, young adults and a mix of ages and stages.
Prayer is how we experience intimacy with God. Prayer ministry is how we “meet the needs of others on the basis of God’s resources” (John Wimber). We encourage people to deepen their prayer lives through guided retreats and midweek worship gatherings. We invite people to receive prayer on Sunday mornings and through our healing prayer ministry.
Raleigh Fellows is a nine-month (September-May) Christian leadership program for recent college graduates. Fellows foster a God-centered view of life through theological education, participation in seminars with community leaders, and one-on-one mentoring. Fellows apply their training as they minister in the marketplace through an individualized internship and at Apostles through Student Ministry. The purpose of the program is to provide a Christ-centered community so that recent college graduates can progress maturing their faith in all aspects of life.
Current Liturgical Season
“Lent is a time for discipline, for confession, for honesty, not because God is mean or fault- finding or finger-pointing but because he wants us to know the joy of being cleaned out, ready for all the good things he now has in store.”
