Nominations now open for Harry Denman Evangelism awards

January 18, 2023

The Conference Evangelism Team is now accepting nominations for the Harry Denman Evangelism awards. The nomination deadline is Feb. 28, 2023.

The Foundation for Evangelism began the Harry Denman Evangelism award in 1981 as a way to honor United Methodist clergy, laity and youth 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 on Evangelism in 1949.

United Methodist clergy, laity and youth are eligible for this award. Please note that a primary indicator of this award is that it showcases professions 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.

You may submit your nominations by using an online form.

The 2023 clergy, laity and youth recipients will be announced at the North Alabama Annual Conference on June 21-24, 2023.
