"I know of no higher calling than that of the itinerant evangelist.
"To be used of God to call men and women to repentance and faith in Christ is surely one of life's greatest privileges. But evangelists also have a responsibility to work side by side with pastors and churches in reaching the lost and bringing them into the fellowship of God's people. No organization has sought to link the ministry of the evangelist and the pastor more than the Conference of Southern Baptist Evangelists, and I encourage you to prayerfully consider using a member of COSBE in your church and community.
"The need for evangelism and revival is as pressing as ever -- and so are the opportunities. May God bless you as you seek to fulfill God's call in your life and ministry."
Dr. Billy Graham
