Many people say that they do not share the Gospel because they do not have the gift of evangelism. However, Scripture never mentions the gift of evangelism but rather commands us to preach the Gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15). What Scripture does mention is the fact that Christ gave the church evangelists in Ephesians 4:11-12, "And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ," In these verses we see that Christ gave evangelists "to equip the saints for the work of the ministry". Evangelists are to equip the saints for evangelism so that all Christians are prepared to carry out the command of Christ to preach the Gospel.
Many individuals have found that this shorter format has proved to be an effective way to not only challenge them in their spiritual walk, but also equip them for specific issues and challenges in their daily ministry.
