Greetings to you from the Conference Evangelism Team. We have the honor and privilege of receiving nominations for the Harry Denman Evangelism Award. We are inviting conference-wide nominations of pastors and laity who have been effective in the ministry of evangelism by reaching new people for Jesus Christ.
The Harry Denman Evangelism award was begun by The Foundation for Evangelism in 1981 as a way to honor United Methodist clergy and laity in each annual conference who exhibit unusual and outstanding efforts for their work in Christian Evangelism. The award is named for the late Dr. Harry Denman, a Birmingham native and distinguished lay evangelist, who founded the Foundation for Evangelism in 1949.
Those eligible for this prestigious award are pastors and lay persons who have excelled in the ministry of evangelism by reaching new people for Jesus Christ. Good questions to ask yourself are: How has your nominee connected others to the Good News of Jesus Christ? How has he/she been effective in this ministry in a new way? How many people have come to the church through a first time profession of faith?
Neither the size of the local church, the age or gender of the nominee, nor the length of their service will limit eligibility. District Superintendents are encouraged to make sure someone from each district is nominated, but anyone in the conference can make a nomination.
You may submit your nominations of a lay and/or clergy person by using an online form OR by downloading a printable form, filling it out, and mailing in your nomination.
The 2013 Nominations will open in early 2013. Please check back then to place your nomination.
