The office of evangelist noted in Ephesians 4:11 is a gift to the Body of Christ. Evangelists help equip the Church for winning the lost to Jesus Christ, utilizing many creative means for sharing the good news. The heart of this track is to go in-depth on the role of the evangelist as a vibrant, active member of the Body of Christ, blessing the church and working with the church as they utilize their spiritual gifting. This Next Generation Alliance-sponsored track is ideal for those whose primary ministry is evangelism. Come and engage with sessions such as the Evangelist and the Local Church, The Inner Life of the Evangelist, a Collaboration and Innovation in Evangelism panel discussion, and much more. While facilitated by the Next Generation Alliance team from the Luis Palau Association, participants are not required to be members of the Next Generation Alliance. All Amplify attendees are welcome and encouraged to attend. If you are looking to gain valuable insight on the impactful role of the evangelist in the life of the church and beyond, this track is for you.
