Evangelists and Preachers must speak the word of God with "all authority". " They must speak the message boldly, showing no respect of persons.
Paul clearly outlined Timothy's work as an evangelist in 2 Timothy 4:1-4. "I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables."
The evangelist's work is to preach the word of God. His charge is to preach all the Word of God, and to know the Word in deep detail. An evangelist also needs courage, and must be humble and not easily offended. He must be able to "endure sound doctrine". Preaching the whole counsel of God is not an easy task.
How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?
