This website gives information about evangelists who are members of the Conference of Southern Baptist Evangelists. The directory listing of evangelists is provided to assist in your search for a Vocational Evangelist.
Once God has laid upon your heart the desire to invite a Vocational Evangelist to your church, begin contacting several evangelists as soon as possible. Your first contact with an evangelist should include questions about the evangelist's ministry, call, and recent places of services. You may wish to request a brochure, biographical sheet, or a list of references from the evangelist. The Vocational Evangelist will be open to providing the information you request and the two of you should agree to pray about the possibilities of ministering together in the future. The Vocational Evangelist understands that every request for information does not imply a firm commitment or invitation to minister with a church, therefore one should not be reticent about contacting numerous evangelists before making a final decision.
When you have decided upon which Vocational Evangelist matches the needs and goals of your church, contact the evangelist to discuss possible dates and preparation plans. Many evangelists have full schedules for months in advance; do not be discouraged if the first date requested is not available. Remember that working with an evangelist is a partnership and a partnership requires flexibility, communication and trust.
Many evangelists also travel and preach the Gospel internationally, and are very experienced at leading teams on mission trips. Please consider contacting an SBC evangelist to lead your next trip to Africa, Asia, Latin America, and many other parts of the world!
