Preaching the Gospel to everyone, everywhere; this is evangelism. While we are all called to evangelize and reach the lost with the Gospel, some have an extra measure of faith and effectiveness in this area. An evangelist is simply someone who proclaims good news.
A person with the gift of evangelism is often called a missionary evangelist traveling from place to place, preaching the gospel and calling for repentance. While not all missionaries are evangelists, a missionary evangelist is like a newscaster or a journalist broadcasting the news, except that the evangelist’s mission is to tell the Good News that never changes.
As a missionary evangelist, you will regularly share your faith, unashamedly, boldly, and without hindrance. Service in Evangelistic Ministry can take place one-on-one, in groups of multiples, in large arenas, and everywhere in-between.
Your criteria for Evangelistic Ministry is a fervent desire to proclaim the Kingdom of God from your doorstep and to the uttermost parts of the earth. Creativity is key in evangelistic ministry as there is but one Gospel, yet multiple expressions of proclamation.
Hear from members serving in the Evangelism field
Very much like in Jesus’ time, the majority of people today who are still unevangelized cannot read. The reason much of the Bible is composed of stories is because oral people love stories! After we began training village evangelists as biblical storytellers 20 years ago, there was a dramatic increase in their hearers’ openness to the gospel. As a result, the number of people coming to the Lord grew tremendously. Now over 500 of these storytellers are sharing God’s stories and many new congregations are being planted every year.
