Jesus told His disciples, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15).  The Scriptures reveal that all believers in Jesus Christ are called to share His Good News with others (Matt 28:18-20; Acts 1:8). Even those who are called and gifted as pastors to serve a local church are exhorted to evangelize at every opportunity (2 Tim 4:5).

However, there are those specifically called and appointed by God to the gift and function of “evangelist” (Eph 4:11). This issue of ACTS Magazine will help explain the call and role of the evangelist according to Scripture.

This teaching will also be valuable to any church leader or Christ-follower, for it contains principles that will encourage, train and equip you and those you lead to win the lost to Jesus Christ!
