Calling All Evangelists! September 20, 2022


It is a great privilege to serve Christ in any way. The highest calling on earth is not the calling to be a preacher, but to simply be a follower of Jesus (Mark 3:14)! Out of that call the Lord makes clear to every minister his own calling from God. I am very grateful that the Lord has called me to be an evangelist.

As a general rule evangelists are not together very often, but when they have that opportunity it is a wonderful thing. Preachers and their wives need the fellowship of other preachers and preacher’s wives and the sharpening that comes through being with one another. One of my desires is to encourage as many evangelists as possible and to emphasize the need for more of them. (Read “We Need More Evangelists.”)

Last year at the Southwide Baptist Fellowship we hosted a luncheon for evangelists and their wives. What a refreshing time together! As a result of this we hope to make this an annual gathering at the conference.

Tammy and I look forward to hosting all evangelists and their wives who are present on Tuesday, October 11 at the Cross Roads Baptist Church in Lawrenceville, GA. If you are in evangelism we would be honored for you to join us.

Because we are catering a nice meal it is necessary to get an approximate idea of who will be able to participate. The luncheon will take place immediately after the morning sessions on that Tuesday. Please help us do a couple of things…

  1. If you have not yet registered for Southwide please do so at The full schedule and further details are also available on the website.
  2. Please email me personally to let us know that you will be able to join us for lunch and provide a number for us to include in the count. You may email me at 

Pastor Tim Rabon is moderating this year’s meeting and Pastor Kenny Kuykendall, our host pastor, is serving as vice-moderator. It is an honor to be part of this annual gathering and this is a year you will not want to miss! I hope to hear from many of you and look forward to our time together.

P.S. Would you please pray for my friend and one of our fellow evangelists and his wife, Dale and Rachel Vance. Rachel is dealing with very serious cancer at this time and we are asking God to work a miracle in her life. “Bear ye one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ.”
