Manassas, VA – Mission Network News (MNN) will receive the NRB International Impact Award during the February 21st International Keynote Session at the NRB 2012 Convention & Exposition.   

“Mission Network News is a comprehensive news source for what God is doing around the world,” said NRB Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships Dr. Ron Harris. “It keeps Christians informed of great ministry work, and also informs listeners of many of the challenges to the spread of the Gospel of Christ. MNN’s impact is felt across the nation as we learn of the power of the message of hope found in Jesus Christ.”

Mission Network News is a service of Cornerstone University. MNN is a daily news service dedicated to providing news and information that has an impact on the church. They inform people how current events are impacting people around the world, but more importantly, encourage Christians to get out of the pew and do something about it, whether it be by praying about it, financially contributing to the need, or actually going and helping physically and spiritually. MNN is heard on more than 1,000 radio outlets in 33 countries, and is translated into Spanish.

The NRB International Impact Award is presented to a U.S.-based NRB member having a global impact for the cause of Christ through electronic media.
