Manassas, VA – Focus on the Family will receive the prestigious NRB Best Mobile Ministry Initiative Award February 21st at the NRB 2012 Convention & Exposition for the suite of mobile Plugged In apps.   

“For families concerned about their children’s entertainment choices, Focus on the Family has produced a valuable and useful mobile tool to sift through the myriad options available,” said NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright.

Plugged In is a Focus on the Family publication designed to shine a light on the world of popular entertainment while giving families the essential tools they need to understand, navigate and impact the culture in which they live. Through reviews, articles and discussions, they hope to spark intellectual thought, spiritual growth and a desire to follow the command of Colossians 2:8: "See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ."

The NRB Best Mobile Ministry Initiative Award is presented to a Christian radio station, television station, ministry or other Christian organization that through strategic planning has effectively used mobile media for promotion of a product, service, or group, thereby fulfilling the mission of the organization.
