Harry Denman Evangelism Award

Dr. Harry Denman

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.”

This award is made possible by partnership with annual conferences across the country.  If you would like to nominate someone for the Harry Denman Evangelism Award, download the nomination form below and send to your annual conference office.
