The most overlooked, under-developed and unmobilized Great Commission ministry resource can be found sitting in the pews of our churches!  When gifted teachers or preachers are identified in the local church, we encourage them to seek training which will enable them to effectively use their gift in ministry. Those who are gifted in leadership are groomed for positions of leadership.  When was the last time you heard of someone with spiritual giftedness as an evangelist being encouraged to seek training so that he or she might use that gift to strengthen the ministry of the local church?
 
The nature of the ministry of the gifted evangelist is such that it was mentioned specifically in Ephesians 4:11 as one of the gifts necessary “for the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry and for the edifying of the body of Christ.” (v.12)
Gifted evangelists not only bring people to Christ but they encourage and equip others to do the same.  What a tremendously valuable resource!  Do you know who the gifted evangelists are in your church?  Who is helping them to develop and use their gift in building up the church?
With the intent of helping to meet this great need IFCA International has devoted an aspect of its ministry, known as "IFCA Harvesters" to come alongside the local church in the task of encouraging and equipping its gifted evangelists to do the work that God has called them to do; thus strengthening and expanding the Great Commission ministry of the local church where they attend.

The receptionist at the gym asked me what I thought about their music. They were taking a survey of their members to evaluate what kind of music we wanted. The truth is that some of it is raunchy. Not the … Continue reading

» THE GREAT COMMISSION WOULD BE EASY, EXCEPT….
It would be simple if the Great Commission just involved evangelism. We could just “hit and run.” Jesus said to “make disciples” all over the world (Matthew 28:19-20). His explanation of “making disciples” is that we are to “teach them … Continue reading

Dog walkers make a living because someone has plenty of money and too little time. It is the ultimate in decadence. Imagine having a pet that you don’t have to care for. It is also possible to do the same … Continue reading

It must be one of the easiest evangelistic opportunities available today. The door is not only open… it is off the hinges. Thousands of international students are studying in universities and colleges here in the States. They are looking for … Continue reading
