 The Gospel Coalition Receives NRB Billy Graham Award  for Excellence in Christian Communications

The Gospel CoalitionManassas, VA– The Gospel Coalition received the prestigious NRB Billy Graham Award for Excellence in Christian Communications during the Media Excellence Dinner on February 25 at the NRB 2015 International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, TN.

Named after the best-known broadcaster, pastor, and evangelist of his era, the Billy Graham Award for Excellence in Christian Communications is presented each year to a Christian organization that effectively and creatively uses multiple electronic media technologies in fulfillment of its mission, while maintaining fidelity to the message of love, redemption, and hope found in the Holy Scriptures.

“The Gospel Coalition has been an anchor for Gospel-centered living,” said Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, NRB President & CEO, “faithfully striving to keep Christ at the center of ministry, work, and life.”

The Gospel Coalition (TGC) exists to prepare the next generation for Gospel-centered ministry. They are a group of (mostly) pastors and churches in the Reformed heritage who delight in the truth and power of the Gospel, and who want the Gospel of the crucified and resurrected Christ to lie at the center of all we cherish, preach, and teach.

"In a time of endless fragmentation, it is easy to sound prophetic from the margins, but one of the most urgent needs of any generation is to be prophetic from the center—from what the Bible makes the center," they say.

TGC wants to be robustly biblical, richly theological, constantly elevating what God Himself in His own Word makes central.
