    If your gift is evangelism, does that mean you have to be strong in other areas as well? (Such as in other gifts of mercy, giving, prophecy, etc.)

    One may or may not be "strong" in other areas, with or without possessing a particular spiritual gift.

    Each and every single spiritual gift (or gifts) is/are given to each and every believer by the triune God (and I believe, simultaneously with the baptism of the Holy Spirit, at salvation), irrevocably, at the sole discretion of the Holy Spirit, and is intended to benefit the whole body of Christ. (Rom. 11:29; I Cor. 12:7, 11-13; Eph. 4: 7, 12-16)

    Ummm... there is NO 'gift' of evangelism. Evangelism is never given is scripture as a 'gift' because it is a command.

    We have "the gift" of the Evangelist to the Church, just like the Apostles were, and the Prophets, and the Pastor/Teachers. None of these are the "spiritual gifts" that are given to all individual believers to edify the church but are 'gifts' specifically to and for the church that it might mature and grow through them - IOW - positions of leadership and guidence whereby those in these positions use their individual spiritual giftings to fulfill the leadership resposibilities given them whether Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor/Teacher.
