I am posing this because some believe it is only listed as a calling and many say it is a Spiritual gift, some a Ministry gift see Col. 4:17. Didn't God call all of His church to evangelize? Mt. 28:18-20 It could be a leadership gift as well.
11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, Ephesians 4:11-12 (NKJV)
Ask the same question of the above? Is being an Apostle a Spiritual gift? Prophet (! Cor. 12:10 lists prophecy)? Pastor? Teacher? Rom. 12:6-8 lists them as gifts in the sense of building up the body of Christ. Paul tells Timothy to do the work of an evangelist. 2 Tim. 4:5 and Philip was and Evangelist Acts 21:8
Maybe this is not worth discussing, but I am bringing it up as a response to those who always say "It is not my calling."
εὐαγγέλιον, euangelion originally denoted a reward for good tidings; later, the idea of reward dropped, and the word stood for "the good news" itself. The Eng. word "gospel," i.e. "good message," is the equivalent of euangelion (Eng., "evangel"). Vine's Expository Dictionary of Old Testament and New Testament Words. We could take it a lot further, because it is also translated preach, teach speak, proclaim etc...
