For more than thirty years, The Foundation for Evangelism has been privileged to work with annual conferences to celebrate outstanding personal evangelism ministry of United Methodist Clergy, Laity and Youth by sponsoring the prestigious Harry Denman Evangelism Award. Since inception, more than 2,500 individuals have been honored. Think of the multiplying impact on the lives of others these folks have made through their efforts to help people experience God’s transforming love through Jesus Christ!
The Harry Denman Evangelism Award is named for the founder of The Foundation for Evangelism. Dr. Billy Graham wrote, “Harry Denman was one of the great mentors for evangelism in my own life and ministry… the thing people will remember above all about Harry Denman was his love of Christ and his desire to see others come to know Him. He truly was one of those rare individuals whose impact will continue for generations to come.”
The Conference Board of Discipleship, Division of Evangelism, is now accepting nominations for The Harry Denman Evangelism Awards for clergy, lay, and youth. Nominations should be submitted directly to Rev. Larry Anderson email@example.com. Deadline is May 1. Please include as much specific information as possible about how your nominee practices personal evangelism as well as examples of the impact made on others. For example, letters of testimony from persons impacted by the ministry of your nominee will be helpful.
Below are the nomination forms for each category: clergy, lay, and youth. The intent is to select recipients who are, “exceptional people who possess a passion to help bring others into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ”.
