Encouraging Called Workers to Remain Faithful in Evangelism
Evangelism is an important part of the church's work. Through evangelism, Christians bring the gospel to the world. This is especially true of called workers. Part of their duties is to do evangelism and train others to do evangelism. Yet, it can be easy for a called worker to lose their zeal to do evangelism. This thesis seeks to find ways in which the zeal for evangelism can be retained in called workers. Through interviews conducted with pastors who do well in the area of evangelism, as well as evaluations of the former and current evangelism programs, I determined that zeal for evangelism requires three main components: education, immersion, and intentionalization. These three categories may help a called worker to retain the zeal for evangelism until after they are retired.
