The Commission on Evangelism exists to help local congregations fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus: “Make Disciples.”
About the Denman Award
The Denman Award for Evangelism is presented annually to individuals whose efforts in sharing their faith have yielded results in changed lives. Each year, every annual conference can honor one youth, one laity, and one clergyperson.
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. The North Carolina Conference is pleased to lift up the work of youth, clergy, and laity engaged in evangelism in many contexts throughout our Conference. Since 1990, the NCCUMC has honored over 50 youth, clergy, and laity for their work in evangelism. View past recipients in the NCCUMC.
Risk Taking Grant
The Commission on Evangelism also offers seed grants to give churches a chance to take a risk for Jesus.
