Last Call for the 'Innovation Exchange' in Texas!

SIE logoIt’s still not too late to register for the NRB Summer Innovation Exchange (SIE)!

But you’ll have to act fast to get in on the special summer meeting because the SIE starts this coming Tuesday, August 6!

Join us as we bring together media professionals involved in Christian ministry, broadcasting, and electronic media to discuss some of the issues, concerns, and opportunities facing them today. Glean from like-minded communicators the best ideas and practices for more effective ministry and business.

“The Summer Innovation Exchange is an opportunity for Christian media professionals to charge their creativity and create life-impacting connections,” says Melissa Sturgis, NRB’s Director of Membership.

Hosting the SIE this year is Hope for the Heart, the ministry of June Hunt, one of the world’s leading biblical counselors. In addition to meeting with those in similar areas of ministry and service, SIE participants will have the opportunity to tour the Hope Center, which is home to more than 40 organizations, including the Association of Christian Schools International (South-Central Region), e3 Partners Ministry, the Global Aid Network (a ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ), I Am Second, Josh McDowell Ministry, and Liberty Institute.

You'll also hear from June Hunt, Founder of Hope for the Heart Ministries; Kerby Anderson, President of Probe Ministries International; and Kelly Shackelford, President and CEO of Liberty Institute.

“I encourage Christian communicators in all areas to join us, to bring their issues and ideas, and to let their peers and counterparts speak inspiring and encouraging words over them and their work,” says Sturgis.

This year, the leadership team that will moderate the various breakout sessions consists of:

  • Tom McCabe, President, Pursuant KMA | CEOs
  • Roger Kemp, President, Roger Kemp and Company | Agencies
  • Ron Harris, President, MEDIAlliance International | Internet/Social Media
  • Doug Price, Director of Broadcast and Media, Hope For The Heart | Fundraising/Marketing/PR
  • Donna Jones, Vice President, Living Bridge Media | Program Producers
  • Christopher Gould, Vice President, National Program Development, Salem Communications Corporation | Station GMs

And participating will be staff members from In Touch Ministries, Joni and Friends, Insight for Living, Bott Radio Network, Salem Radio Network, Focus on the Family, and The Salvation Army, among others.
