The word pastor comes from the same root as "pasture"; and an evangelist is one who proclaims the "evangel" or gospel. The true pastor-evangelist is the spiritual shepherd who leads the flock of God into the green pastures of His Word and beside the still waters of prayer.
To reach these souls we will have to meet the requirements of the prophet Jeremiah: "I will send for many fishers, saith the Lord, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the boles of the rocks." Jer. 16:16.
