The award is named for the founder of The Foundation for Evangelism.

The Indiana Annual Conference is now accepting nominations for the Harry Denman Evangelism Award for Clergy, Laity and Youth.

The Harry Denman Evangelism Award recognizes a person whose life and ministry exemplifies the teaching of Christ and the Great Commission. This can involve personal witnessing, speaking, and inspiring individual persons or the local church to be actively involved in helping people to experience the transforming love of God through Jesus Christ. The Indiana Conference will choose a recipient in each of the three categories: Clergy, Laity and Youth.

The 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.”

Recipients of these awards, nominated by individuals, churches, or districts, and selected by the Annual Conference, live their call to “Offer Them Christ” daily as modeled by Dr. Harry Denman.
