Manassas, VA – The National Religious Broadcasters Executive Committee recently voted to approve four new full members and five new associate members during their June 2010 meeting.

“We are delighted to welcome these new members into the NRB family,” said NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright. “These organizations and individuals have found that NRB membership will help to further their goals in ministry here and around the world.”

The following are new Full Members of the National Religious Broadcasters:

Arab Vision, an organization committed to supporting Christians in the Arab World, both in their spiritual journey and in their participation in transforming society. They accomplish this mission by producing television programs that strengthen the Churches in the Arab World, invite all Arabs to become followers of Christ, and focus on changing society in accordance with the Gospel. Arab Vision then distributes these programs via satellite television broadcasts, national, regional and local television, the Internet, and other new media. The organization is also committed to training Christians from the Arab World who share a similar commitment to produce television programs that proclaim the Gospel, as well as educating Christians globally about the Arab World, the Churches of the Arab World, and Islam.

Global Freedom Concepts (Conceptos Financieros), an influential financial stewardship ministry to the international Hispanic community. As a nonprofit organization founded by Dr. Andrés G. Panasiuk, its major purpose is to equip people, institutions, and corporations around the globe to learn, apply, and teach biblical financial principles so individuals will know Jesus Christ more intimately and be free to serve Him, investing their time and resources to fulfill the Great Commission. At present, Conceptos Financieros has national offices in 13 countries in Latin America, and more than one thousand volunteers committed to their vision of taking these teachings globally.

LegacyTV, a new network designed to fill a void in American television, namely the large percentage of American families that support traditional values, believe in absolute truths, and desire freedom to live their lives without undo interference from government. Some of their programming is educational, some confrontational; other programs are classic shows and movies representing traditional American values, while still others are topical.
