From an evangelistic point of view, the ministry in Ephesus was very fruitful. It is also believed that during this third missionary journey churches in the nearby places have been founded through one of his co-workers. ( Col. 4:12,13 , Col. 1:7). This was also Paul’s last missionary journey as a free man.
