I had the awesome priviledge of announcing the Denman Evangelsim Awards today at Holston Annual Conference. The awards went to the following people.
Clergy: Rev. Brian Taylor, Pastor of Muncy Memorial UMC, Johnson City District
Laity: Bob and Judy Cavanah, White Pine UMC, Morristown District
Youth: Laura Holderfield, Hillsville First UMC, Wytheville District
The Harry Denman Evangelism Award
Those eligible for these prestigious awards are persons who are effective in helping persons to experience the transforming love of God through Jesus Christ. Each annual conference is encouraged to honor one lay person and one clergy person from their conference each year.
In 2008, The Foundation for Evangelism celebrated together with 46 conferences the awarding of 94 Denman Evangelism Awards.
