Would this better suit the style?

An e-vangelist is a person who uses the Internet to present the Christian gospel message to the world.

== Biblical Role == The role of an evangelist or e-vangelist in conjunction with the [[apostles]], [[prophets]], [[pastors]] and [[teachers]] is described in '''[[Ephesians]] 4:11-13''' "''11He is the one who gave these gifts to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. 12Their responsibility is to equip God's people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ, 13until we come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God's Son that we will be mature and full grown in the Lord, measuring up to the full stature of Christ.''

Not really appropriate

This article's subject doesn't really strike me as something specifically appropriate to OrthodoxWiki. An article on Orthodox evangelism might be appropriate, but "e-vangelism" seems something of an idiosyncratic term (and a bit cheesy, at that). Remember that all articles must address the question, "What does this specifically have to do with the Orthodox Church?"

An encyclopedia covers what's actually happening, so such an article should show evidence that there's something already being called "e-vangelism" that's being done by active members of the Orthodox Church. Are you aware of any?

Even an article on Orthodoxy on the Internet would probably be very difficult to justify, since there's not really any coherent community or history that one could point to regarding the use by Orthodox Christians of the Internet. —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 22:41, January 2, 2006 (CST)
