Recently I got a job as an evangelist working with Revival in Eastbourne and beyond. I won't jump into the role with both feet until my curacy at All Souls, Eastbourne ends (Easter 2011). But the idea is to stay a member at All Souls and work with churches in the town and further afield (invitations happily received!).
The organisation has a proud history with Eric Hutchings founding the work 60 years ago. They haven't had a dedicated evangelist on board for some time so it will be an opportunity to develop a ministry with the backing of a staff team and many committed supporters. The Lord is good.
Initially I will focus on working with interested Eastbourne churches, enthusing and equipping the leadership and laity. I'd love to establish a little school of evangelism and start building a team. There's a lot of scope for town centre open-air work and park-bench evangelism (Eastbourne is the retirement capital of the UK). It'd be great to produce resources for the wider church through books and videos and other web avenues. And I'd be pushing on doors to see whether larger-scale interdenominational evangelism might be possible here or abroad.
All good fun. Praise Jesus!
