It is estimated that 10% of Christians are gifted as evangelists. The goal is for 100% of Christians to be involved in evangelism but there are some who are really gifted in evangelism. We need the 10% who are gifted to help the 90% who are not.
The evangelist’s role is to:
- INSPIRE: It is motivational to be around evangelists. Their stories are fantastic. Evangelists need a “platform” in your church to tell their stories.
- INSTRUCT: According to Ephesians 4:11-12 the main job of an evangelist is to train the 90% to do evangelism. It is expecting a lot for people to do something for which they have not been trained.
- INVOLVE The 90% need someone to model evangelism. Someone to hold their hand. Someone to show the way. Training is more than having a class on evangelism.
