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.

I was chatting with a businessman who had lived in a predominately Muslim country and asked him about evangelism there. His answer surprised me. He indicated that there was far more interest in that Muslim country than in England where … Continue reading

» Don’t just train people for evangelism…
It is a common leadership quip:  “You get what you honor.”  The idea is that if you put something on a pedestal, people will get the idea that it is important. This applies to evangelism.  It is common for churches … Continue reading

The gas pump failed to spit out a receipt. Instead the screen said: “the cashier has your receipt.” I was in a hurry to get home and muttered to myself in disgust as I headed into the gas station to … Continue reading

» Win the battle and lose the war.
You have heard the saying that it is possible to “win the battle and lose the war.” That sometimes characterizes our evangelistic efforts. If evangelism is a debate, then we can win if we just have good enough arguments… but … Continue reading
