Franklin Graham to Speak at NRB International Christian Media Convention in May 2023
WASHINGTON, D.C. (NRB)—The National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) association is delighted and honored to announce that worldwide evangelist and missionary Franklin Graham will deliver the keynote address to the Opening Session of the 2023 NRB International Christian Media Convention on May 22, 2023, at the Orlando World Center Marriott (Orlando, Florida).
Graham has carried on a generational legacy of sharing the Gospel through every medium available; from face-to-face evangelism to hands-on acts of service to digital campaigns reaching millions of listeners and viewers. As the Opening Session headliner, Graham will set the tone for NRB 2023 by reminding Christian media leaders of the critical importance of remaining faithful to the historic truths of Scripture.
The following statement is from Troy A. Miller, President & CEO of the National Religious Broadcasters:
“All too often, we are seeing pastors and ministries fall by the wayside, compromising on the truth of Scripture and disintegrating into fixtures of the culture. As our society is bombarded by anti-Christian hostility and contempt for First Amendment freedoms, Graham’s message promises to deliver exactly what we need to hear as Christian leaders: a call to stand firm, not bow to the cultural influences of the day.”
Franklin Graham has devoted his life to meeting the needs of hurting people around the world and proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The eldest son of Billy and Ruth Bell Graham, he serves as President and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Under his leadership, Samaritan’s Purse has met the needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, famine, and persecution in more than 170 countries. As an evangelist for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Franklin Graham has proclaimed the Good News of Jesus Christ through hundreds of Crusades around the world. He also shares God’s Word with millions of people across the U.S. through 60-second Gospel spots that air on television and radio stations throughout the country. During the pandemic lockdown, he created the 24-hour Billy Graham Prayer Line, which has received more than 1.7 million calls to date.
