Come be a part of a great revival- the Master's Storyteller! May 6-9 right here at FUMC Dayton. We will start the Revival Sunday morning and finish up Wednesday night.
Rev. Wesley Putnam has been a full-time evangelist since 1981. A musician, dramatist and storyteller, his ministry crosses denominational and demographic lines. Most of all, he’s a believer who wants to glorify God and build up the Kingdom. Wesley is involved in the church. He has served as president and executive director of the National Association of United Methodist Evangelists.
He has also been active as a representative on the Council of Evangelism of the South Central Jurisdiction.
Wesley has been honored by his peers in receiving the Philip Award, and the Denman award for his work in evangelism.
Wesley is a family man. He and his wife, Felicia, live in Bedford, Texas. Their three adult sons are actively involved in the Church, too. When not on the road, you can usually find Wes doting over his grandchildren.
Wesley Putnam Ministries is hard to define. It’s a unique blend of music, drama and children’s outreach combined with a good measure of lively, relevant preaching. It’s a fresh approach to renewal that can bring newness to your church. His ministry includes revivals, concerts, youth camps and retreats aimed at deepening individual commitment, strengthening the family and equipping local congregations for service in the world.
Wes brings the Word alive with his anointed preaching. His messages overflow with warmth and humor, but they’re not candy-coated. His relevant approach connects with the struggles that all people share. Preaching is the communication of the heart of God to those He loves. The message God has burned into the heart of Wesley Putnam is his passion. He proclaims the Good News with simplicity and clarity. You will never walk away without examining your relationship with God and with those around you. You hear a message of hope. You go home believing that God is able to restore broken relationships and give the wonderful gift of new beginnings. In town after town there are testimonies of God’s power to change us.
