Evangelism & Bible Study
The role of the evangelist is explained by the title. "Evangelist," means literally "proclaimer of Good
News." The preacher proclaims the good news of the Gospel of Christ. It is significant, that when
the first century church needed some benevolent work attended to in Acts chapter six that the
apostles (who were the evangelists and preachers of the day) said – "It is not desirable for us to
neglect the word of God in order to serve tables." (Acts 6:2, NASB)
