In the New Testament, Paul addresses three epistles to men preaching the gospel. These men, called"evangelists" (one who brings good news) are charged to "Preach the word!" God gave evangelists for the equipping and building up of the body (Ephesians 4:11–12). Many confuse evangelists with the roles of pastors or ministers. The word "pastor" refers to the elders of the church. Every Christian is a minister, or servant. Evangelists are simply preachers of the gospel. Their job is to "preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching" (2 Timothy 4:2–5). Jeff May is our current evangelist and we are so blessed to have him and his family with us. He and Susan began laboring with us June 6, 2021.
