Manassas, VA– Peter Darg from CBN Europe will be presented with the NRB International Strategic Partnership Award at the International Keynote Session on Tuesday, March 5, during the NRB 2013 Convention & Exposition in Nashville, TN.
The NRB International Strategic Partnership Award is presented each year to an NRB member that has forged an effective partnership with an indigenous ministry, marked by strategic planning and cooperation with indigenous co-workers, sensitivity to cultural distinctives, and an impactful Christian outreach in the target culture. This year, the judges named CBN Europe’s Peter Darg the winner of the award.
“Using television, the Internet, and social media, CBN is proclaiming the Good News to 136 nations and territories, with programs and content translated into 42 languages,” noted NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright. “Peter, no doubt, has played a significant role in CBN’s efforts to reach the nations of the world for Christ through mass media. I commend him for his exemplary work.”
London-born Peter Darg is a broadcaster who has served the Lord for nearly four decades in various areas of the world, including the U.S., the Middle East, Africa, and now Europe, where he serves as European Director of the Christian Broadcasting Network. As the Regional Director for CBN Europe, Darg has forged strategic partnerships with other European media ministries for the daily broadcasting of evangelistic television programs in Europe. He previously established CBN's news bureau in Jerusalem in 1982.
With his wife Christine, Darg is also involved in a ministry to Jews and Arabs in Jerusalem and serves as a trustee of the Revelation TV Foundation in the U.K./Spain.
Furthermore, Darg is an elder in the Presbyterian Church and an ordained minister, serving each year overseas along with his wife in a number of large open air Gospel festivals in India, Pakistan and elsewhere.
