ADRIAN, Mich. -- Lee Donley, president of the North Central Jurisdiction UM Men, received the Harry Denman Evangelism Award from the Detroit Annual Conference, meeting last May in Adrian.
“Lee has a heart bigger than his chest,” said the Rev. Doug McMunn, pastor of Oxford UMC where Donley teaches a 5th grade class, organizes potato drops and leads efforts to repair homes.
Prior to the meeting, McMunn asked Donley if he planned to attend annual conference. “I hadn’t planned to,” he replied. McMunn finally had to tell Donley why he should attend.
In accepting the award, Donley said his goal is to “help men grow in Christ so others may know Christ.”
