Ignatius, c. AD 110

It is fitting, O Polycarp, most blessed in  God, to assemble a very solemn council and to elect one, whom you greatly love and know to be a man of activity, who may be designated the messenger of God [Lit. God-runner]. Bestow on him this honor: that he may go into Syria to glorify your ever-active love to the praise of Christ. (Letter to Polycarp 7)

Hermas, c. AD 160

Then she [old woman who represents the church in the vision] "... When I finish all the words, all the elect will then become acquainted with them through you. Therefore, you will write two books, and you will send one to Clement and the other Grapte. Clement will send his to foreign countries because he has been given permission to do so. Grapte will admonish the widows and the orphans. You will read the words in this city, along with the elders who preside over the church." (Shepherd of Hermas I:3:4)
