I’m No Evangelist

red door

I recently took the online inventory commonly referred to as the APEST put together by Alan Hirsch and company. I scored as a Shepherd-Prophet and not an Evangelist! In reading the SP combo I realized I have always been one who sought to passionately lead people to do things more than doing those things myself. Makes sense. I’ve always said, “My desire is to get people to do evangelism more than for me to do evangelism myself” so that test summary seems right on target.

That’s true for all the five-fold gifts. They are given “to equip the saints to do the work of the ministry” more than to accomplish that work alone.

Now go do the work that matters – however you’re wired.

Steve has spoken, mentored and modeled to churches and leaders around the world with the simple message that anyone – regardless of their gifting or experience – can be involved in bringing God’s loving kindness to others. His first book, Conspiracy of Kindness has been translated into several languages with more in the works. His first book has sold over 300,000 copies. Altogether his books have sold over 500,000 copies.


  1. Who would’ve thought? Always have seen your evangelistic heart shine.

    p.s. don’t always trust in tests 🙂
