What does it mean for a pastor to “Do the work of an evangelist?”

We were recently asked about Paul’s call upon pastors to, “Do the work of an evangelist?”  Since we couldn’t find many helpful resources that we felt complimented the primary pastoral call to be a shepherd, we set out to provide a few resources.

Here’s a podcast and an article that were recently released to address this important issue.  Read or listen below:
