As the curtain closes on the 2024 NRB International Christian Media Convention, NRB will welcome Dr. Jack Graham, senior pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, to deliver an inspiring, faith-filled message.
Since joining Prestonwood Baptist Church in 1989, Graham has seen immense growth in the church, which now holds one of the nation’s largest congregations with three locations in North Texas.
Graham has authored several books, including Reignite: Fresh Focus for an Enduring Faith; A Man of God: Essential Priorities for Every Man’s Life; Unseen: Angels, Satan, Heaven, Hell and Winning the Battle for Eternity; Angels: Who They Are, What They Do and Why It Matters; Powering Up: The Fulfillment and Fruit of a God-Fueled Life; and Courageous Parenting, written with his wife, Deb.
His passionate biblical teaching addresses relevant, everyday issues and reaches a worldwide audience through PowerPoint Ministries. In October 2022, in partnership with PRAY.COM, Graham launched the “The Bible in a Year with Jack Graham” podcast, which has exceeded 30 million downloads.
Graham also helped lead national prayer initiatives during his time as Honorary Chairman of the National Day of Prayer. Along with his pastoral work, Graham has served as President of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), the largest Protestant denomination in the United States as well as the largest Baptist denomination in the world.
The Closing Gala includes the presentation of the NRB Special Service Awards, presented to individuals and organizations who model excellence, integrity, and longstanding service in Christian communications.
Attendees of the 2024 NRB Closing Gala will also hear inspiring musical selections from Chosen Road. Since 2009, Chosen Road has been carving a singular niche in the musical landscape with their world-class instrumentation and passion for sharing and living the Gospel. Founding member Jonathan Buckner, along with Zachary Alvis, Tyler Robertson, Josh Hicks, and Chris Stockwell comprise the group and have released six albums. Their 2022 release, Appalachian Christmas, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Bluegrass Albums chart, while the 2023 release of It Never Gets Old debuted at #2 on the same chart and features the #1 single “I Want To Be Just Like You.” Throughout their career, Chosen Road has garnered seven Top 10 bluegrass radio singles, including two #1 hits.
The Closing Gala is sponsored by Evangelism Explosion International, a ministry that offers practical training on sharing one’s faith in Christ.
The NRB Convention annually draws thousands from across the nation and around the globe for opportunities to network with like-minded Christian communicators, garner insights and strategies from leaders in media, ministry, and policy, and build visibility with prospective collaborators, supporters, customers, and media outlets.
