An Evangelist is a lay person who presents the good news of Jesus Christ in such a way that people are led to receive Christ as Savior and follow Christ as Lord in the fellowship of the Church. An Evangelist assists with the community’s ministry of evangelism in partnership with the Presbyter or other leader exercising oversight of the congregation, or as directed by the Bishop.
Recognizing that all Christians are called to be evangelists, the Commission on Ministry of this diocese has renamed this position as “Evangelism Facilitator.” An Evangelism Facilitator is one who will enable all of us to express, in our own ways, the Good News of Jesus Christ. Evangelism Facilitators foster evangelistic ministry within a congregation. Not only do they model personal evangelism in the community, but they also have a leadership role in helping all members of the congregation to exercise their individual evangelical gifts.
