In 1976, the Conference of Georgia Baptist Evangelists was established to glorify God in reaching others with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through mobilizing Georgia’s Baptist evangelists and working cooperatively with the Georgia Baptist Mission Board to promote revival/evangelism throughout the churches in our state. Our organization promotes familiarity with the individual evangelist members of GBE through a web site, a directory, and promotional activities with ministers, the GBMB, and The Christian Index.
The organization was renamed Georgia Baptist Evangelists, Inc. (GBE) in 2015;
our purpose today remains the same...
Lifting up the name of Jesus and harvesting the crop of souls ready to receive Christ through preaching, singing, drama, street witnessing, house to house witnessing, broadcast, radio, television, internet, print media, and all methods of communication to calling men to Christ. Promoting fellowship among those engaged in evangelism among Georgia Baptist churches and providing inspiration and information to assist the evangelist to better serve the Lord Jesus Christ and the churches whom they serve. To work with the Georgia Baptist Mission Board in bringing all Georgians to a saving knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To promote revival/evangelism in all churches. To commend God-called men to the churches of the Georgia Baptist Convention. To teach and uphold the office of the evangelist. (Ephesians 4:11)
WHAT WE DO
As an official organization recognized by the Georgia Baptist Mission Board, through GBE, evangelists are given an identity and a voice that would not be possible otherwise. GBE has the ability to represent the concerns of the Georgia Baptist evangelists on a statewide level. By joining GBE, there is some “lobbying” power in which concerns can be voiced. By joining GBE, every member’s picture appears in a directory that will be mailed to Georgia pastors or on a website. Because of the application process required to be a member, pastors can be assured of integrity and accountability from those identified with GBE. An evangelist’s identification with GBE provides a venue to become acquainted with other like-minded ministries, allowing iron to sharpen iron. GBE is committed to upholding the office of the evangelist, promoting fellowship among evangelists, and maintaining a healthy relationship with the Georgia Baptist Mission Board in seeing that our concerns are well-represented.
