Are you looking for connections that can help fulfill your mission? Do you want to find a community of fellow Christian media professionals who can help you increase the success of your outreach?
Dr. Ted Baehr, Founder and Chairman of The Christian Film & Television Commission™ and Publisher of MOVIEGUIDE®, understands how crucial being part of a community of Christian media professionals is to succeeding in your mission in the Christian communications industry because he has experienced that success firsthand as a result of the community he found in NRB.
“I’ve been a member of the NRB since 1978, and I’ve been on the Board of Directors since 1980,” Baehr shares. “Right at the beginning of my tenure, I started inviting the…top people of the major Hollywood entertainment industry to the NRB Convention…to fulfill part of our mission at MOVIEGUIDE® – Christian Film & Television Commission™ to bridge the gap between the people of faith and the Hollywood Entertainment Industry.”
What were the results of Baehr’s guests’ interactions with the NRB community? “Several of the people became great fans of Christianity, several grew in their Christian faith, and some even came to Christ, while others became more Christian friendly,” Baehr answers.
Now serving on the NRB Film Standing Committee, Baehr actively works to create more opportunities within the NRB community for communications professionals to connect with each other in order to exchange ideas, learn about the latest advances in the field, and publicize their work. Many of these opportunities are realized at the NRB International Christian Media Convention, where Christian communicators from around the world gather every year.
As Baehr reflects on his decades of NRB membership, he concludes, “So I credit the NRB for providing a community of television, radio producers, and now filmmakers who help bridge the gap between the world of the secular media and Christendom and so make a tremendous difference in our culture.”
