Harry Denman – the man with only one suit – was a Methodist lay leader and evangelist whose life exemplified Jesus’ teachings from his Sermon on the Mount. He usually only had one pair of shoes, and he had no watch – because he liked to ask people for the time as a way of starting a conversation with folks. When people would gift Harry clothes, he would often turn around and give them to the needy. He served as the secretary for the Department of Evangelism in the Board of Missions of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. He was the General Secretary of the Commission on Evangelism. He was responsible for the publication of the devotional resource The Upper Room. He played a part in incorporating The Foundation for Evangelism. He was also instrumental in establishing the International Prayer Fellowship which is an organization that was headquartered at Lake Junaluska. In addition, he served as a member of several Jurisdictional Conferences. Billy Graham once called Denman, “one of the great mentors for evangelism.” So, join us on this Historical episode of the Methodical Methodist Podcast as we will explore the life and ministry of Harry Denman.
