NASHVILLE – Morning sessions during the second day of the National Religious Broadcasters' four-day convention included breakfast meetings with such groups as the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and a time of worship during the general session.
Author and speaker Tony Evans told those in attendance that he is grateful for the opportunity for people in the media industry to come together and remember that they can serve as a comprehensive influence in the world.
"This is not the day to be polite or give ordinary sermons or sing ordinary songs," Evans said. "We are watching this country falling. The kingdom of God needs to arise."
Christian media and ministry professionals have converged at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center, the site of the NRB event.

"It's a group of men and women committed to using every electronic media platform available to us to reach the world for Jesus Christ," said NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright. "It's the embodiment of the body of Christ that we see at the Convention."
