Times, they are a-changing. The internet and a constant onslaught of new technologies has completely changed the way people communicate with each other and the way they broadcast their message(s) to a larger audience.
It stands to reason, then, that if Christian groups, organizations, businesses and ministries are committed to expanding their platform and reach to spread the Gospel to as many individuals as possible, a crash course in media training is probably necessary.
And that's where the National Religious Broadcasters Convention and Exposition, attended annually by thousands of Christian media and ministry professionals, comes in. more >>
Former Arkansas Governor turned top-rated Fox News host Mike Huckabee will be presented with the National Religious Broadcaster Board of Directors Award next week during this year's NRB Convention in Nashville.
"Gov. Huckabee has utilized the various platforms that God has given him to make a positive impact on society," said NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright in a statement. "Furthermore, he has been intentional about shining the light of Christ in some of the darkest areas of society. I applaud him for his faithfulness and efforts."
Huckabee's rise to national prominence occurred when he campaigned to be the Republican presidential nominee in 2008. Initially dismissed as a long shot, Huckabee became the dark horse in the Republican race and finished second to Sen. John McCain (Arizona), beating out former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, whose campaign had significantly more money and staff than Huckabee. more >>

Leaders at InterVarsity Christian Fellowship look forward to submitting statements to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights about incidents where universities have attempted to restrict the religious liberties of student groups in the name of non-discrimination, the organization said Thursday.
Over the last several years, some colleges have tried to, and in some cases successfully, implemented policies that call for religious student groups to not use religious criteria in leadership selection. The Civil Rights commission announced last month a briefing to be focused on reconciling non-discrimination policies with religious liberties scheduled for later this month.
"We're very excited and very pleased that the commission is looking into this issue," Intervarsity National Field Director for the Northeast Greg Jao told The Christian Post. "For universities to suggest that leaders don't need to hold their beliefs imposes a very foreign theology on these groups. A theology that says leadership requirements don't matter. more >>
It seems like political conservatives are in the wilderness right now. Having been beaten in the November 2012 elections and fracturing even more since, some are turning on each other.
Reagan has the answers. Recently, I was reviewing some of his speeches because I was looking for nuggets from him on the subject of prayer. He did not disappoint.
Gary Bauer served the Reagan administration in a couple different capacities, including as an advisor on domestic policy. He told me in a recent interview: "Ronald Reagan was very clear what the winning coalition was if you were a conservative. He referred to it as the three legs of the stool…the economic leg...the foreign policy leg…and the third leg of the stool is the leg of values…He was pro-life, he was pro-family…he spoke out for religious liberty." more >>
