The Evangelism & Discipleship Team exists to help local congregations fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus: “Make Disciples.”
As a part of this work, the committee recognizes youth, laity, and clergy with exceptional ministries of evangelism each year through the Denman Award.
Additionally, the committee encourages churches to take a risk for Jesus through the Risk Taking Grant.
