The Ministry of the Evangelist

Reach NZ

What is the difference between the Ministry of the Evangelist, and the Ministry of Evangelism?

The Ministry Of The Evangelist is not the same as the Ministry of Evangelism. The Ministry of the Evangelist is to equip God’s people for the work of Evangelism. Only SOME have been called to the Ministyry of the Evangelist, to equip the body of Christ to do the work of Evangelism under the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit. Yet all have been called to evangelise. But not all are obedient to that call.

What Is An Evanglist

You are not an Evangelist because you go out into the world to evangelise. That’s what makes you a Disciple obedient to fulfilling the great commission, which is what every believer has been called to do in one form or another.

The Ministry of Evangelism is for EVERY believer, and is fulfilled outside of the Church out in the community.

The Five Fold Ministry

I’m convinced that the goal of the effective ministry of the Evangelist is that “we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” (See Ephesians 4:13.)  In other words, the purpose of the Ministry of the Evangelist is given to SOME to equip EVERY believer to Evangelize. In this way, every Christian will look like Jesus.

The purpose of fivefold ministry is actually a Person.  Apostles, prophets, and the rest are not merely training people to minister.  They are equipping the Church to become Jesus: <<<Read more>>>

“…until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”

The terms “ministry of the evangelist” and “evangelism” are related concepts within the context of Christianity, but they have distinct meanings and roles:

1. Ministry of the Evangelist:

The ministry of the evangelist refers to the specific role and calling of an individual within the Christian faith. An evangelist is a person who has been called by God to train Disciples how to proclaim the Christian gospel and to share the message of salvation through Jesus Christ with others. The ministry of the evangelist often involves traveling, preaching, and conducting evangelistic campaigns or events.

Key characteristics of the ministry of the Evangelist include:

  • Preaching: Evangelists is to equip His Saints to evangelise. They are typically gifted speakers who deliver sermons or messages that focus on the teachings of Jesus Christ, the need for salvation, and the call to repentance and faith, and the responcibility of the Church to fulfil the Great Commission.
  • Outreach: Evangelists often engage in outreach activities, both within the church community and in the wider world. They equip and encourage the Church to seek to reach non-believers, bring back lapsed believers, or encourage and strengthen the faith of existing believers.
  • Revival Meetings: Evangelists are involved in organizing and leading revival meetings or crusades, which are special events aimed at renewing and revitalizing the faith of believers and bringing new converts to Christ.
  • Discipleship: While evangelists are primarily focused on proclaiming the gospel, they also play a role in the initial discipleship process, helping new believers grow in their faith and understanding of Christ.

2. Evangelism:

Evangelism is a broader concept that encompasses the practice of spreading the Christian gospel and sharing the message of Jesus Christ with others. It is not limited to the work of evangelists but is considered a fundamental duty and calling for all Christians. Evangelism can take various forms and can be carried out by individuals, churches, and Christian organizations.

Key aspects of evangelism include:

  • Personal Witness: Every Christian is encouraged to be a witness for Christ in their daily life, sharing their faith through their actions, words, and lifestyle.
  • Church Outreach: Churches often engage in evangelism through community events, outreach programs, and mission work to reach people who may not be part of the church.
  • Door-to-Door Visitation: Some Christians and church groups engage in door-to-door evangelism, where they visit homes and engage in conversations about faith.
  • Media and Technology: In the modern age, evangelism also takes place through various media, including television, radio, the internet, and social media, where the Christian message can be shared with a broader audience.
  • Evangelistic Campaigns: Churches and organizations may organize evangelistic campaigns or events to reach a specific group of people or a community with the gospel message.

In summary, the ministry of the evangelist is a specific calling within the Church, involving the equiping of the saints and encouraging them to preach and proclamation of the gospel, while evangelism is the broader practice of sharing the Christian message with others, which can be carried out by all Christians in various forms and settings. Both play crucial roles in spreading the message of Christianity and bringing people to faith in Christ.
