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.
SERVING IN : Ukraine, Europe
MINISTRY FOCUS : Evangelism, Mercy Ministry
We are the Perekotiys, a Ukrainian and American family! We have been entrusted with four beautiful children: Chambers (2013), Lev (2015), Mila (2016), and Remington (2019). Our story began when we met in Ukraine in 2008. After living on the Gulf Coast of Alabama, we packed up our gang in 2018 and moved to Odesa, Ukraine, a beautiful, historic port city on the Black Sea. While visiting family in Alabama in 2022, the full-scale invasion broke out in Ukraine. We decided to remain in the US for the 2022-23 school year while supporting our partners in Ukraine through the War Relief Fund. In August 2023, we launched back overseas to share the Gospel among Ukrainians. We are based out of Bucharest, Romania, where we can serve refugees and be close to the Ukrainian border.
Through the War Relief Fund we have sent medical aid, vehicles, food, and education supplies to those in need. The needs of the vulnerable will only increase as this crisis continues, and we are committed to partnering with our friends and partners to meet those needs. We pray to use these resources to rebuild Ukraine when the war ends.
Our heartbeat has always been caring for the vulnerable and fatherless. Our vision is to see Christ proclaimed as we serve vulnerable children and families with national partners and churches. We also serve the unreached deaf community, and provide training and trauma resources for families and volunteers. Thank you for journeying with us!
