MISSION STATEMENT: The Department of Evangelism exists to provide structure for the outreach efforts of the Church Of God in Christ, Inc. (COGIC) through its evangelists and local churches. Seeking the empowerment of the Holy Ghost, evangelists and local churches extend the Kingdom of God by proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations.


VISION STATEMENT: Seeking the saving of lost souls around the world, the Department of Evangelism serves as the agency for organizing, training, accountability, unifying, fellowship, equipping and resourcing evangelists and local churches in the Church of God in Christ, Inc. (COGIC) in the area of evangelism and serves as the networking source for greater strategic impact.


The keen perception of the Department of Evangelism will be to:

  • Train ministers to become Evangelist
  • An emphasis will be put on the recruitment of young ministers to be the catalyst for them to relate to the “youth population” the great “Pentecostal Experience of Salvation.”
  • Our vision is to create an evangelistic revival plan parallel to the spiritual revival that occurred at Azusa Street. This revival, with great expectation of the Department, will catapult thousands into: repentance, justification and sanctification.
