All Christians are called to be a witness where they are to express the love of God in their lives, but Evangelists are those people who, after selection and training by the church, have focussed that call to be witnesses in a particular way. Evangelists are those people who have a real 'heart' for the outsider, for those who as yet do not recognise the impact of God, through Jesus, in their lives. They are people who also help those who have lost their sense of faith to recover their relationship with God and to be strengthened in it.

Evangelists in the Diocese of Rochester work in a variety of ways. Some work specifically with children and young people in schools and clubs, most work across age ranges. In some areas there is a specific work with the elderly. Some run small enquiry groups for adults either in churches, homes, pubs or cafes. Others do estate visits especially to welcome newcomers to an area. 

Some are engaged in acts of 'servant evangelism' where they aim to do acts of kindness simply because God is a God of love. Some Evangelists use the arts in their work while others are gifted speakers at outreach events.
