Itís time for the Church to return to the biblical governmental
that Christ himself laid out for the body of Christ, for the
perfecting of the saints.
Eph 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some,
evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the
saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of
God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of

The word evangelist means in Greek "one who announces good tidings." An evangelist is not as greatly concerned about imparting deep spiritual truths as teachers are, but is motivated to help people understand and respond to the basic biblical messages. The evangelist's primary concern is to help non-Christians find salvation and the forgiveness of sins. The cry of the evangelist's heart toward other Christians is to motivate them to respond to basic mandates such as "Go into all the world and preach the gospel..." (Mark 16:15).
The evangelist is a proclaimer of the fundamental Christian beliefs.
The Holy Spirit works with the evangelist to motivate the listeners. Through the anointing that is on the evangelist, people are emotionally stirred and crowds are easily attracted. The Holy Spirit flows out in a way that convicts people of their sins. Excuses for inactivity and indecisiveness are exposed by the light of the Spirit. All listeners are spiritually urged to respond and act.
The evangelist is usually an aggressive, energetic person. In order to motivate other to act, the evangelist must be an active individual who enjoys seeing quick results, big crowds, and fast change. The anointed evanglist is constantly moving and is exciting to be around.
Evangelists can be found both inside and outside the local church. In the book of Acts we see Philip, who is called an evanglist (21:8), preaching the Gospel in one city after another (8:40); Philip was also used by God to share the Gospel one-on-one with unbelievers (8:29-38). In his own church he was one of the seven deacons who waited on tables (6:1-5).
Som evangelists preach to Christians, while others are sent out to minister to the world.
