The Harry Denman Evangelism Award program honors United Methodists in each annual conference whose exceptional ministry of evangelism – expressed in Word (what), Sign (why), and Deed (how) – brings people into a life-transforming relationship with Jesus Christ.
Evangelism happens in many contexts and many settings; impacts and engages all generations; and requires relationship among a variety of persons.
What distinguishes a Harry Denman Evangelism Award recipient is the commitment to consistently introduce others to the Good News of Jesus Christ in all ministry settings. Their ministry is exceptional for the number of new Christ Followers who credit encounters with this person as critical in helping to start or reignite their faith journey.
Each year Annual Conferences and the Foundation for Evangelism recognize one youth, one clergy, and one lay person in each conference. It is our privilege to honor all recipients – listed here by Conference
