Country Living wins NRB Media AwardNASHVILLE (NRB) – Amazing Facts Ministries received the 2018 NRB Best Long-Form Video Award for “Country Living” on Friday, March 2, at Proclaim 18, the NRB International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, Tennessee.

The NRB Media Award for Best Long-Form Video is presented to a church or church ministry for a long-form production (28 minutes or longer) for the purpose of special events (Christmas/Easter production, etc.), weekly television programs, or documentaries. Award recipients must demonstrate outstanding creativity, use of technology, and team involvement and effectiveness. They must also show attention to godly principles, appeal to a wide spectrum of audiences, and demonstrate production skills of the highest level.

Amazing Facts is a multimedia ministry dedicated to sharing the Gospel through television, radio, websites, publishing, live revival events, Bible school, and more. For more than 50 years, all this has been made possible by faith through the ministry’s dedicated staff, volunteers, and donors.

“Country Living” is a 28-minute video for YouTube and DVD that shares how God intended human beings to live in nature and reveals practical tips for living in the country. Beautiful aerial photography combined with onsite footage at Pastor Doug Batchelor’s rural home appeals to lovers of the environment, those interested in healthful living, the geographically isolated, the self-sufficient, and anyone who wants to live off the grid.

The Best Long-Form Video Award was one of 26 awards that were presented during Proclaim 18, which took place February 27-March 2, 2018, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee. For the complete list of 2018 award recipients, click here.
