Manassas, VA –Chuck Swindoll, gifted pastor, award-winning author, and teacher, will speak at the NRB 2011 Banquet on Tuesday, March 1st.
“We are blessed to have Chuck with us this year. We know that you will be thoroughly energized and uplifted by his remarks,” commented NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright.
In the summer of 1977, the sermons that Chuck Swindoll preached at the First Evangelical Free Church in Fullerton, CA, were broadcast on 27 stations in the United States. Listeners responded immediately to the lively message of this down-to-earth pastor who communicated God’s Truth in practical terms that they could understand and apply to their lives. In 1979, the radio ministry of Insight for Living was officially born, and aired on just a handful of stations. Today, more than 2,000 stations carry the program around the world in seven different languages. It is also available to an exploding webcast and podcast audience.
Swindoll’s prolific writing ministry has blessed the body of Christ for over 30 years. Beginning with You and Your Child in 1977, Swindoll has contributed more than 70 titles to a worldwide reading audience. He has received 12 Gold Medallion Awards – more than any other Christian author to date.
A pastor for more than 40 years, Swindoll served as Dallas Theological Seminary’s fourth president for seven years. He is currently the seminary’s Chancellor, and the Senior Pastor at Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco, TX. In 1999, Swindoll was awarded the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) Religious Broadcaster of the Year award, and was inducted into the NRB Hall of Fame in 2000.
Two passions have directed the life and ministry of Chuck Swindoll: an unwavering commitment to the practical communication and application of God’s Word, and an untiring devotion to seeing lives transformed by God’s grace. Swindoll has devoted more than four decades to these goals, and he models the contagious joy that springs from enthusiastically following Jesus Christ.
The Insight for Living headquarters is in Plano, TX, with offices in Melbourne, Brasilia, Vancouver, and London.
