Francis Asbury Award recognizes individuals who support and encourage collegiate ministries in the United Methodist Church — nominations due March 25


The North Alabama Conference Board of Higher Education and Campus Ministry is currently accepting nominations for the Francis Asbury Award.

The Francis Asbury Award recognizes and encourages the support of higher education and collegiate ministries in The United Methodist Church. The award recognizes individuals who have made a significant contribution to fostering the church’s ministries in higher education at the local, district, or annual conference level of the church.

The award is named for Bishop Asbury and is based on his admonition to the people called Methodist to erect a school in the vicinity of every church. “We must,” he said, “…give the key of knowledge to your children, and those of the poor in the vicinity of your small towns and villages.”

The deadline for receiving nominations for North Alabama is March 25, 2018. Please email Stephen Fincher at with your nomination.
