Discussion Questions - Re-read our passage from this week (Ephesians 4:11-16) and then with your Growth Group, family, friends, etc. thoughtfully answer the following:

1. How has your faith been built up by the ministry of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Shepherds & Teachers?

2. Where do you see the ministry of Apostles, Prophets and Evangelists happening today?

3. Do you see yourself functioning in one of the APEST giftings?

4. How have you seen your faith mature in the past few years?

5. How confident are you in the Bible’s teaching that you are not easily swayed?

6. Speaking truth in love is a key characteristic of a mature Jesus follower. What’s harder for you, speaking up for truth or maintaining a loving disposition?

7. The Church should be like an intricately designed machine, operating smoothly with each part functioning just like it should. What do you think is missing in our church that would help it run more smoothly?

8. What is your next step in following Jesus after this study?
