The addition of many new members resulting from an evangelistic campaign always brings a thrilling stimulus to the church membership as a whole. There is nothing that rekindles the first love in the hearts of all our people like a genuine Spirit-motivated revival that gives birth to many new converts for Christ and His blessed truth.
The evangelist who is used as God's instrument to bring the truth to men and women, and to rescue them from sin to a glorious liberty in Christ Jesus, carries a tremendous influence and has the respect of the church as a whole. He is in a position to give strong impetus to projects that need to be promoted in the church. It may be raising money for a new church building, or securing the funds for the establishment of a school, raising Ingathering funds for missions, or some other important feature. All phases of God's work are necessary and correlated, and they all fill their place in the accomplishment of the one great objective, the evangelization of the world for God in the shortest time possible.
It has been my personal experience in nearly every church where I conducted a series of meetings that there has been some local project that needed strong support. I have counted it as a personal pleasure, as the evangelistic campaign drew toward a conclusion, to lend my influence to the consummation of that task. The evangelist can thus be used of God to raise thousands of dollars for the advancement of God's cause, which under other circumstances would be much more difficult.
