Members of the NRB President’s Council gathered in Washington, DC, this month for the 2015 Capitol Hill Media Summit.
During the October 6-8 event, the Council members were presented with an insider’s perspective of our nation’s capital and heard from government officials, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai, and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO), who was presented with NRB’s 2015 Faith & Freedom Award.
Council members also heard from Founder and President of the Center for Security Policy Frank Gaffney and Political Analyst Stuart Rothenberg. In addition, Council members heard from NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson and NRB Vice President of Government Relations Aaron Mercer, who shared detailed reports of NRB’s work on Capitol Hill and with government entities such as the FCC.
“The NRB President’s Council is a select group of strategic partners whose generous support and dedicated efforts enable the NRB to preserve and expand the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, both here and around the world,” notes Melissa Sturgis, NRB’s Director of Membership. “Council members recognize the singular importance of NRB’s engagement in the legislative, legal, and regulatory arenas, and they serve as influential ambassadors for NRB as they interact with political leaders and others with positions of significant influence and authority in our nation’s capital.”
Also part of the 2015 Capitol Hill Media Summit was a tour of the construction site of the Museum of the Bible, a 430,000-square-foot international museum dedicated to the impact, history, and narrative of the Bible. Scheduled to open in fall 2017, Museum of the Bible is located in Washington, DC, just two blocks from the National Mall and three blocks from the Capitol. Using cutting-edge technology, Museum of the Bible will provide guests with an immersive, personalized, and unparalleled experience as they engage with the Bible. During the upcoming NRB International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, Museum of the Bible will have a museum set up on the floor of the Exposition, along with approximately 200 other exhibitors. Museum of the Bible is also the Platinum Sponsor for the 2016 Convention.
