The Local Church and the Evangelist

Monday, February 7, 2022 | Guest: Ben Farrell |

Why should a church consider using an evangelist? What questions should a pastor ask before committing for an evangelist to come? Marshall Fant discusses this topic with Ben Farrell, current senior pastor of Reedy Creek Baptist Church in Lexington, NC. Because Ben Farrell grew up in the home of an evangelist and traveled with his dad in evangelism before transitioning to the pastorate, he is able to speak from the perspective of both the pastor and evangelist. He continues to travel some holding special services, preaching at camps, and ministering with Majesty Music.
