What is the Difference Between an Evangelist and a Pastor?

In the Bible, an evangelist and a pastor are two different spiritual gifts or roles that are mentioned in the New Testament. Here is a brief overview of the main differences between an evangelist and a pastor:

  1. Role: An evangelist is someone who is called by God to share the gospel with others and to lead them to faith in Jesus. An evangelist may be involved in personal evangelism, mass evangelism, or both. A pastor, on the other hand, is someone who is called by God to shepherd or lead a local church or group of believers. Pastors are responsible for the spiritual care and oversight of their flock, including teaching, counseling, and shepherding.
  2. Function: The primary function of an evangelist is to share the gospel and to lead people to faith in Jesus. The primary function of a pastor is to provide spiritual leadership and care for a local church or group of believers. This includes preaching, teaching, and providing pastoral care and counsel.
  3. Authority: An evangelist does not typically have the same level of authority as a pastor within a local church. While an evangelist may be respected and influential within the Church, they do not typically have the same level of responsibility or oversight within a local congregation. Pastors, on the other hand, are typically responsible for the spiritual direction and leadership of a local church.

It is important to note that the roles of evangelist and pastor are not mutually exclusive, and some individuals may have both gifts or roles. Additionally, the gifts of evangelist and pastor, like all spiritual gifts, are given by the Holy Spirit and are meant to be used for the benefit of the Church and for the glory of God.
