2020 Wesley Awards

We will once again celebrate innovative ministry happening across our Conference during Annual Conference 2020.

What mission, outreach, project, or program from within your congregation or community are you excited about?

Tell us about it, and you will be considered for a Wesley Award.

We seek to affirm and celebrate ministries from around the Conference that are creatively, innovatively and faithfully making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Much like last year, Wesleys will be awarded throughout Annual Conference, as we highlight ministries that embody the bold and imaginative makeup of The United Methodist Church in Louisiana. We are looking for ministries that lead others to an abundant life in Christ, engage the community in significant ways, tell the Gospel story in creative ways, and seek to reach new people.

We also invite each ministry to include a one-minute video introducing us to the ministry and highlighting the significant impact the ministry is making. (This is not required, simply an invitation.)
