Church of the Apostles was launched in November of 2002 (under the auspices of the Episcopal Diocese of Olympia Washington and NW Washington Synod ELCA). We are an intentional, sacramental community in the way of Jesus Christ.
Church of the Apostles seeks to explore new ways of being church and living mission in today’s cultural context and among today’s generations.
Begun as house church gathering of five young adults, Church of the Apostles has grown into a community of 150 apostles with an average age of twenty-seven. Apostles community now has members age one to seventy one, representing a diversity of backgrounds and viewpoints, yet united beyond differences around one Eucharistic table, engaging a common Benedictine ethos, Rule of Life and spiritual practices, that enable us to ever deepen our devotion to The Holy Trinity, our embrace of the the way of Jesus, and our committed to 'full conscious and active' participation in the Missio Dei, in our cultural context, our local neighborhood and wider world.
Church of the Apostles currently has a wide ranging missional deployment and impact, beyond our size. We are a well known, and often visited community within the ‘emerging / fresh expressions of church’ movement.
