Here is a link to my latest paper in the ‘Jesus-given’ series, looking at discipling evangelists. After Al Hirsch et al, my premise in this series is that the primary vocations of apostle, prophet, evangelist, shepherd and teacher are each nuanced by our secondary preferences, resulting in great diversity. In this case, I explore the cluster of evangelist expressions, which I term translators (Evangelist-apostles), midwives (Evangelist-prophets), convincers (Evangelist-shepherds), and enthusiasts (Evangelist-teachers).
Link to a dissertation I have written on recovering the ministry of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers in the local church, in which I engage with the writings of missiologists Alan Hirsch and Mike Breen, and sociological commentator Malcolm Gladwell.
