An essential part of the ministry, Evangelism is the “lifeline” of the church. It is their responsibility to spread the Gospel by tirelessly going out into the community to witness to those who do not normally attend church. Additionally, they work with new converts each week to teach them about Open Door International Ministries and what we have to offer to increase their daily walk and faith in the Lord.
