There’s a vast difference between the church in the first century and the church today. Should we view the early church as a pattern or is God doing something else in our day? Author David Orton has served as a pastor, teacher, and ministry leader for over 40 years. He was a catalytic leader for citywide pastors’ prayer summits across Australia, bringing hundreds of pastors together in relational unity from more than 20 denominations. David is committed to seeing the church across all nations and denominations restored to apostolic foundations and Western culture rediscovering its genesis — and thus its flourishing — in its historic commitment to Christianity.
