I just spent three days at the annual convention of the National Religious Broadcasters, an association of about 1,200 ministries that have media outlets (radio, TV, internet, etc.). We met in Nashville, Tennessee at the massive Opryland Hotel.
We picked up the NRB award yesterday for Best Ministry Website. We are honored and blessed to receive the award considering there are so many NRB members with quality websites. Our talented web team, led by VP Dan Zordel, was greatly encouraged by this special recognition.
At the convention, we passed out demo CDs of our new 60 second radio program (to launch in May).
Here are some photos from the NRB convention.
AiG VP Dan Zordel, me, and Dr. Frank Wright of the NRB.
Dr. Wright and I videotaped an interview, where we talked about the “Best Website Award” plus the progress of the Ark Encounter.
A couple of ladies dropped by our large booth in the NRB expo hall and wanted my advice on … well, smart phones! A staff member joked with me that I had missed my calling—working as a sales associate at Best Buy!
Being interviewed for an American Family Radio program—the host was back at the AFR studios in Tupelo, Mississippi. (By the way, please pray for its ailing VP and AiG friend, Marvin Sanders.)
Talking with Luiza, a reporter for the Christian Post news website, at our booth.
An interview with Dennis Page of KCBI, a large Christian radio station in Dallas.
Talking with long-time friend Dave Young, VP of Blount Communications, whose six radio stations cover a large part of New England (and have hosted me in the past for an AiG seminar).
The convention started with some sad news. Outgoing NRB chairman Bill Skelton passed away the day before the convention started. Bill was the right-hand man for the late Pastor Adrian Rogers and his well-known ministry “Love Worth Finding.” He and his wife Barbara (photo below) were keen Creation Museum supporters—they toured in 2010 and we appreciated their friendship. See NRB Chairman Visits. Please keep Barbara in your prayers.
Last, here’s a photo of Pastor Jim Scudder of Chicago interviewing me for his TV program Victory in Grace.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
