Manassas, VA – Answers in Genesis will receive the prestigious NRB Best Use of Social Media Award February 26th at the NRB 2011 Convention & Exposition for the I Am Not Ashamed national media campaign.
“By providing the online tools, Answers in Genesis has rallied Christians to stand publicly and uncompromisingly on the Word of God,” said NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright. “From their Facebook page and blog to their Video Bible site—where participants can upload a video of themselves quoting Scripture—Answers in Genesis has creatively provided a forum for believers to demonstrate their passion for the authority of Scripture.”
