It is exciting to see a greater evangelistic emphasis taking shape across our North Alabama Conference and I appreciate the work you do practically sharing Christ every day. Along these lines, it is now time for the 2015 Denman Evangelism Award Nominations to be submitted. We are looking for exceptional people who possess a passion for connecting people to Christ and actively leading others to salvation. John Wesley said, “You have nothing to do but to save souls. Therefore spend and be spent in this work.” This award revolves around not only individuals who are missional in their focus, but especially those who are evangelistic; actively leading others to Christ through professions of faith.
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 on Evangelism in 1949. For more information on Harry Denman go to www.umcna.org/denman or visit The Foundation for Evangelism at www.foundationforevangelism.org
Clergy and laity are eligible. 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 OR by downloading a printable form, filling it out and mailing in your nominations.
