Evangelists proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ, calling those who hear to believe in him. This may be in the context of missionary journeys, often in partnership with others, or within a more settled ministry. Carrying out the task requires integrity and commitment in the face of hardships and danger; it also brings joy at seeing the church grow.
Within a settled period of ministry2Ti 4:5Timothy as a pastor is also to do the work of an evangelist. See alsoAc 18:9-11 Paul spends a year and a half in Corinth; Ac 28:30-31 Paul preaches the gospel whilst under house arrest in Rome; 1Ti 4:13-14; 2Ti 4:2
