Billy_Graham_Library.jpgManassas, VA – The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) will receive the prestigious NRB Best Television Commercial Award February 21st at the NRB 2012 Convention & Exposition for their Billy Graham Library spot.

“With their characteristic creativity, BGEA has once again shown they can use media to move their audience,” said NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright.  “Mustering childlike imagination, they have excited the curiosity of all ages to experience the ‘ongoing crusade’ that is the Billy Graham Library.”

Built on the same property as the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, right off of Billy Graham Parkway in Charlotte, NC, the Library is organized around the themes of “The Man,” “The Ministry,” “The Message,” and “The Mission,” with the message being pre-eminent: the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The ministry is taking that message to the ends of the earth. The Journey of Faith focuses on what God did in the life of a young farm boy who grew up in rural North Carolina, committed his life to Jesus Christ at a local revival and, through God’s grace manifested in him, became what many consider “America’s pastor” and evangelist to the world.

The NRB Best Television Commercial Award is presented to a commercial that is creative, innovative, and memorable, and that effectively engages the audience by using the television medium from artistic, technical, and communicative standpoints.
