Jewish evangelists before Paul

Paul had a vast foundation on which to build and Peter was the one who said —

 For from ancient generations [the writing of] Moses has been preached in every city, since [a]he is read aloud in the synagogues every Sabbath. – Acts 15:21

It implies the pre-existence of a commonly understood pattern of relationship, whether in the case of the congregational structure or the missionary band structure which Paul employed earlier as Saul the Pharisee, and later, when the Antioch congregation released Paul and Barnabas for missionary work.
