This person has a demonstrated ministry to peers and colleagues of every generation. The recipient has also engaged the Fellowship in leadership and servanthood.  The award is given to affirm the recipient, to encourage the younger generation of Fellowship Baptists, and to excite the continued interaction among the generations.
