The countdown to the 2024 NRB International Christian Media Convention has begun! Today, NRB is pleased to introduce a stellar lineup for the NRB 2024 Opening Session, which will include remarks from respected Christian voices Jonathan Falwell and Rev. James E. Ward Jr.
Jonathan Falwell is the Chancellor of Liberty University. He has also served as senior pastor of Thomas Road Baptist Church since June of 2007. He was called as pastor after his father, Rev. Jerry Falwell (founding pastor of TRBC in 1956) passed away in May 2007. Falwell has been in full-time ministry since 1994.
James E. Ward Jr. is Chairman and CEO of Total Living Network (TLN). Ward Jr. is a pastor, author, visionary, and entrepreneur who has emerged as a mainstream, conscionable voice of spiritual and moral truth. His involvement is highly sought after by corporate, government, and thought leaders, and on mainstream media outlets to mitigate the complex racial, cultural, intersectional, and socio-political challenges of our day. Ward is the author of “Zero Victim: Overcoming Injustice With a New Attitude,” pastor of INSIGHT Church, and founder of the National Prayer Altar at Museum of the Bible.
Opening Session attendees will also enjoy musical segments featuring For KING & COUNTRY and Journey Worship Co.
