Manassas, VA – The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association will receive the NRB Best Television Commercial Award during the February 27th Television Reception at the NRB Convention & Exposition.

“This commercial illustrates the purpose and passion of Billy Graham and his Evangelistic Association for the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” said NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright.  “BGEA continues to show that the message of salvation is as timeless today as it was when Billy Graham began preaching two generations ago.”

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) proclaims the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ throughout the world by every effective means available. From its headquarters in Charlotte, N.C., BGEA runs a wide range of domestic and international evangelism ministries, including: large-scale festivals led by evangelists Franklin Graham and Will Graham; Dare to Be a Daniel, a youth evangelism training project; My Hope World Evangelism Through Television; the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team, offering the hope of Jesus Christ in the midst of tragedy; and many others through print, television, telephone, radio and the Internet.

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.
