Manassas, VA – Larry Burkett will posthumously receive the prestigious NRB Hall of Fame Award during the March 1st Banquet at the NRB Convention & Exposition. 

“Larry Burkett poured his life into teaching people biblical financial principles,” said NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright. “And we are grateful that the work he began continues today through the dedicated efforts of Crown Financial Ministries.”

In 1976, Larry Burkett incorporated Christian Financial Concepts that later became Crown Financial Ministries. This marked the beginning of a legacy that has touched untold numbers of lives through print, radio, and television media, books, seminars, counseling sessions, and speaking engagements. The most well known aspect of Larry’s legacy is the reach of Crown’s radio department. Programs such as How to Manage Your Money, Money Matters, and A Money Minute blessed listeners through more than 1,000 stations in the U.S.

The National Religious Broadcasters Hall of Fame stands as a witness for current communicators, a showcase of warriors for Christ who live exemplary lives of valor and compassion, blazing trails and leaving paths for succeeding generations to follow.
