Nominations for 2018 Denman Evangelism Awards Now Being Accepted
Each year, Annual Conferences across the nation join The Foundation for Evangelism (FFE) to recognize outstanding youth, clergy, and laity in their conference with the Harry Denman Evangelism Award. Harry Denman, noted lay evangelist and Christian leader, believed that each person must live their call to make disciples of Jesus Christ through relationship, mission, and preaching. Even now, more than forty years after his death, Denman’s words still inspire: “Today…the only way we can see Christ is to see him wrapped in a person…”
The Harry Denman Evangelism Award honors United Methodists whose exceptional ministry of evangelism – expressed in Word (what), Sign (why), and Deed (how) – brings people into a life transforming relationship with Jesus Christ. If you know a youth, clergy and/or lay person that fits this description please consider submitting a nomination form.

RESOURCES TO CONNECT WITH THE COMMUNITY:
The Appalachian District Church Vitality Team has been prayerfully seeking ways to help support you and the ministries of your local congregation during this COVID-19 pandemic. Together they have diligently researched and connected with others throughout the conference and our denomination to identify resources and offer them to you. We hope they will be helpful to you and bless you greatly in leading your churches and communities through this unprecedented time. We are very grateful to the District Vitality Team and other contributors for their great work on this resource.
This faithful team has created three documents, two of which you are receiving today. They include:
- Family Home Worship – designed to help families establish a regular worship space within their homes as well as a time where they can worship together.
- Tech Strategies – to help guide you in selecting effective tools and resources within your budget to best communicate in the digital world.
We believe these resources will be of great benefit to you. Also know that the District Vitality Team is available to answer any questions you might have in regards to the documents attached. If you have questions, you may email Rev. Howard Fleming at firstname.lastname@example.org.
