The NRB President’s Award is presented to an individual who has demonstrated exceptional commitment to the faith and values upheld by the association. The recipient of this award is selected by the NRB President & CEO.
“This year, there were two ministries that really, really ministered to me,” said Troy Miller, NRB’s CEO, in presenting the award during the NRB 2020 Closing Gala with Special Service Awards on February 28.
“I know that they have been praying for us and praying for me,” he continued. “So tonight, I wanted to thank Dr. David Jeremiah from Turning Point Ministries and Dr. John MacArthur from Grace to You, for all of their prayers, for their faith, and for their support of this organization.”
A longtime member of NRB, MacArthur is the Pastor-Teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, as well as an author, conference speaker, Chancellor of The Master’s University and Seminary, and Featured Teacher with the Grace to You media ministry.
