Robert and Martha Marble Mission Award
Each year the Robert and Martha Marble Mission Award  is given to an individual in the Missouri Annual Conference who exhibits outstanding commitment to mission. This award is given in honor  of the Marbles, who served for 36 years as missionaries from Missouri  to India. The recipient will receive a certificate and $500 given to a mission  project of his/her choice.
Unity Award
The Values Team of the Missouri Conference of the United Methodist  Church is now receiving nominations for the Unity Award. The Unity Award celebrates the spirit and work of an individual in light of the values  of the Missouri Annual Conference with particular emphasis on inclusiveness, justice and worth.  The recipient must have demonstrated a continuing commitment to the  full and equal participation of women, ethnic minorities, and all other  groups or individuals historically discriminated against in the total  life and mission of the United Methodist Church and the community at  large.
One Matters
The One Matters award exists to encourage a renewed focus on  discipleship, especially at congregations in the United Methodist connection where annual baptisms and professions of faith too often are  nonexistent. This award exists to encourage discipleship in existing churches where this type of growth has been nonexistent for some time.
Denman Evangelism Award: Clergy & Laity
This award honors United Methodists selected by the annual conference  for their exceptional ministry of evangelism - expressed in Word (what),  Sign (why), and Deed (how) – that brings people into a life  transforming relationship with Jesus Christ. A Harry Denman Evangelism Award recipient consistently introduces those they serve to the Good  News of Jesus Christ. Their ministry is outstanding for the number of  new Christ Followers who credit encounters with this person as critical  in helping to start or reignite their faith journey.
