The awards are named for United Methodist layman Harry Denman who had the gift of making people want to listen whether he was speaking with one person or to a multitude. Love for the Lord and his fellow human beings was the keynote of his life and was truly a "fisher of all persons." To learn more, visit the Foundation for Evangelism.
