Enrolled Evangelist Policy

Enrolled Evangelist Policy
Sponsored by North American Missions

In order to facilitate ongoing revival within the United Pentecostal Church, it is essential to have qualified, full-time Evangelists to help reap the harvest and maximize our potential for growth. North American Missions feels that it is imperative to further assist Evangelists with direction and training and for ongoing growth in this ministry.

Purpose

To coordinate the efforts of the Evangelists in the UPCI by:

  • Raising awareness of the Evangelists’ ministry within the UPCI.
  • Providing ongoing training and resources to evangelists.
  • Encouraging and facilitating networking with other Evangelists.

Benefits

To fulfill this purpose, North American Missions, via the Evangelists Ministry, proposes that a full-time Evangelist within the UPCI be offered an official enrollment opportunity, with the following benefits:

  • Listing on the Evangelists’ web directory for ministry visibility.
  • Added to the Enrolled Evangelists’ listing in the UPCI Directory.
  • Access to the NAM Evangelist Coordinators in each District.
  • Any special privileges given to Enrolled Evangelists at conferences partnering with NAM.
  • Can request assistance from the Enrolled Evangelist Emergency Assistance Fund.

All UPCI Evangelists that recognize the value of this program and its benefits are invited to enroll.
