Lehotsky Lazarus Award

2018 Lehotsky Lazarus Award Contest

The Lehotsky Lazarus award was formed to honor those who demonstrate a commitment to transforming lives within their community. Our mission is to give back to those who have given much. We hope to encourage them to continue serving God, despite the many challenges they face. Our hope is this also inspires others who are called by God to reach out to their community. Most importantly, our aim is to glorify God and inform people of the wonderful work being done to further His Kingdom.

We are looking for someone who is active in creating a God-honoring impact in their community; someone who is passionate in what they do and inspires others. We are looking for someone who recognizes a need or a problem in their community and takes action to meet that need.

The winner will be announced at the 2018 NAB Triennial Conference in Edmonton, AB in July. The winner’s ministry will receive a check from Church Investors Fund that we encourage the ministry to give to the winner as a bonus to their salary. Often, these types of selfless people will put the money back into their ministry work, but for this once, we would feel blessed if they would use it to bless their own lives. We really look forward to hearing how God is moving in your church and the surrounding community.
