Reminder: Nominations for 2018 Denman Evangelism Awards Now Being Accepted
Each year The Denman Evangelism Award is presented at Annual Conference to the youth, clergy, and/or lay person that best personifies what it means to live our call to make disciples of Jesus Christ. The recipients are those who have followed in the footsteps of noted lay evangelist Harry Denman by showing Christ to others through their actions, ministries, and heart for living and sharing the Gospel. Honoring those who have personified Denman’s words to “Preach the Gospel at all times, and when necessary use words” encourages us all to ministries that bring people into a relationship with Jesus Christ through our Words, Signs, and Deeds. Who do you know that should be considered for this year’s Harry Denman Evangelism Award?

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:
