About this event:

The pastor as evangelist: rediscovering our role of sent leaders over a sent people.  In today’s church pastors face the immense and daunting task of wearing many different ministry hats.  Far too often and far too easily the hat of evangelist is laid by the wayside.  Does God have better designs for how the church should fulfill his mission of making disciples of all nations?  What if “doing the work of an evangelist” actually meant less hats and more freedom?
