NRB | March 13, 2024 | NRB News

On Wednesday, Feb. 21, presidents and leaders of NRB member organizations met at the 2024 NRB International Christian Media Convention to attend the invitation-only Media Leadership Dinner.

Christian leaders and statesmen play a vital role in defending religious liberty and freedom of speech amidst a changing modern media landscape. Each year, NRB leaders gather at this signature VIP event to build relationships and hear special guest speakers on matters affecting the future of Christian media today.

The Media Leadership Dinner featured special guest speakers Sen. Marsha Blackburn, the senior United States Senator from Tennessee, and Sebastian Gorka, Ph.D., host of “AMERICA First” (Salem Radio Network) and former Deputy Assistant to President Donald J. Trump.

Blackburn delivered a keynote address on the importance of Christian broadcasters speaking uncompromisingly about cultural issues to protect the wellbeing of children, underscoring the importance of online safety.

Blackburn thanked Christian media leaders for their continued involvement in preserving the wellbeing of families.

“One of the things I appreciate is how you run toward consequential issues,” Blackburn said. “You’re very intentional about how you talk about religious liberty, education, life, free speech, and protecting children, and especially from human trafficking and abuse. I am so grateful for the work that you’re doing.”

Gorka urged Christian broadcasters to daily reflect on whether their actions glorify God and how to stand firm in this mission.  He offered a practical exhortation to the numerous media leaders filling the room.

“I want you in the morning after you pray to say, ‘How am I going to glorify God, and what am I going to do to save America?’” Gorka said. “It doesn’t have to be grandiose, but it has to be something. And at the end of the day, we ask ourselves, ‘Did I do what I was meant to do for God, and did I do something to help save the nation? Did I glorify Him who took my sins upon Himself voluntarily?’”

Gorka ended with a rousing admonition to media leaders: “The task ahead of us is monumental because the forces of the devil walk freely in our nation.”

The 2024 Media Leadership Dinner, attended by NRB leaders and key industry decision-makers, was sponsored by Christian Healthcare Ministries, a budget-friendly, biblical, and compassionate healthcare cost solution for Christians, and My Faith Votes, a non-partisan movement that motivates, equips and activates Christians in America to vote in every election.
