Ministry Notes: The Evangelist

Many people are well aware of the great commission Jesus gave in Matthew 28:19-20:

"Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. And I'll be with you until the end of the age".

This commission is extended to everyone. It's one of the definitions of an evangelist.

One of the jobs for ministers is to evangelize to others. Even more importantly though, they should prepare the members of their congregation to evangelize to others. Ministers should provide opportunities for them to learn, train, and act out evangelizing.
