THE FIVE PERSONAS
Tapestry Magazine's content is broken up into five sections or personas. These personas are based on the fivefold ministry functions outlined in Ephesians 4:11-13:
“So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”
These functions are not simply spiritual gifts but a model for how the church is meant to function, in order that we would grow in both unity and maturity. We want our personas to mirror this archetype. Our hope is that our content will bring the voice, perspective, and role of each persona to life and that each persona will bring diversity, texture, and a wholeness to the publication in its entirety. Each one of us will most likely connect with one persona over the other, but each one of us will benefit from the unique role and influence that each persona has on the body of Christ.
