About The Evangelism Gifting
A description of the role, and gifting with the Evangelist in the Five Fold Ministry
The Evangelist (Story Teller)
Dear Evangelist and Story Teller. Your contribution to the ministry of God is to make the stories of Jesus’ remarkable goodness and transformation famous. You are the carrier of good news and are partners with Jesus in celebrating people’s transformation. You stir curiosity and desire to know Jesus and play a significant role inviting people into God’s family. You have a unique gifting that is essential to the ministry of God.
- Its really important to you to have friends, relationships and a life outside your church circle
- You are able to get other people excited about what you are excited about
- You are highly adaptable and feel comfortable in almost any setting you are in
- You have a heart for people who are far from God
- You make other people feel comfortable when you are around
- You feel frustrated when church is more inward focused than outward focused
- The things you love, you REALLY love.
- You are intentional and strategic before you open your mouth and say something
- You are really convinced that God is really really good.
- You believe your life should speak louder than your words
- You can be bold and speak your mind – it sometimes catches people off guard.
- You have an appreciation that life is short – you never know what will happen.
- You get excited when eyes are upon you
- People don’t celebrate the transformations of God
- People are welcome to come to God’s family but are never invited.
- People don’t know how to tell and share their own story
- People’s faith are stale and without enthusiasm
The Vision for the Evangelistic
Every person can be invited into God’s family. Every person can hear the amazing stories of God’s goodness and transformation. Every person can be encouraged that God is alive today.
As you dream, pray and plan, ask yourselves these questions:
- How do we best invite people into the family of God?
- How do we best give people an invitation to experience the true God?
- How do we best capture, share and promote the amazing stories of God?
- How do we best demonstrate to the world that God is alive and active today?
About The Five Fold Ministry
What if you could know your God-given calling and gifting? What if you could have answers to questions such as; How does God want to use me? How do I serve God? How to I participate with God in building his church? How do I contribute to building up of people for God?
All of these questions are answered when you discover your God-given gifting and calling. What if you could know what that is? Well, we have built a tool to help you do exactly that. Its called the Five Fold Ministry Test.
We believe the answer to how we are to minister with God is found in the biblical example Paul instructs for believers.
And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:11-16 (NASB)
