NRB Standing Committees are established to advance the overall mission of NRB and to serve the unique interests of specific constituencies, particularly church media, intercollegiate, international, Internet, music licensing, radio, and television/film.

We need you in our association. "A cord of three strands is not easily broken" (Ecclesiastes 4:12).
We live in a day where the cause of Christ is under threat, seemingly from every quarter. Nowhere is this more true than in the arena of Christian broadcasting.
While Christian radio, television, and Internet broadcasters have tremendous influence in bringing the claims of Christ to a culture desperately in need of truth, there are dark and ominous clouds on the horizon. The designation of historic Christian teaching as hate speech, the demand that religious groups hire unbelievers in key staff positions, and the threat to statutorily re-impose the so-called Fairness Doctrine are all examples of significant contemporary threats to the interests of Christian broadcasters.
For over 60 years, NRB has been in the forefront of the battle to keep the doors of electronic media open for the spread of the Gospel. As that battle continues to heat up, we continue to work diligently to protect and preserve the rights of Christian broadcasters. We do this in the halls of Congress, with regulatory agencies such as the FCC, and within the Executive Branch.
Our association of over 1400 Christian broadcaster organizations works to preserve religious freedom and strengthen our members' efforts to proclaim the message of eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ.
Membership in NRB is not automatic. Not every Christian broadcaster is eligible to join our association. NRB maintains very high standards for ethics, integrity, and financial accountability. In addition, we have a thoroughly biblical Statement of Faith, which limits our membership to those who fully subscribe to the teachings of the historic Christian faith.
For those who qualify, here are some of the significant ways in which membership in NRB can strengthen your work:
We need you in our association... As the Scripture says: "A cord of three strands is not easily broken" (Ecclesiastes 4:12).
