Nomination deadline for 2020 Denman Award is February 27

January 14, 2020

The Conference Evangelism Team is now accepting nominations for the 2020 Denman Evangelism Awards.

The Harry Denman Evangelism award was begun by The Foundation for Evangelism 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.

Please note a primary indicator of this award is the fact 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 OR by downloading a printable form, filling it out and mailing in your nominations.

When submitting a nomination, please prayerfully answer the questions noted on the nomination form. If you believe that a letter of recommendation would be helpful in the selection process, please submit those at the time of your nomination. Please do not send audio or video material such as information on a CD or DVD.

All Denman nominations and information must be received by February 27, 2020.
