FFE has a tradition of recognizing excellence in local church evangelism that focuses on impacting younger generations and encourages those who seek to grow the United Methodist Church. through the Culture of the Call Church Award. Originally designed “To recognize one local congregation of The United Methodist Church each year that has a history of having young people 35 or younger experience God’s call to full time Christian service as a result of their being active in the life of that church,” the award has come to represent a level of excellence desired for all churches as they seek to identify, support, mentor, and encourage young people who are called to Christian service.
