NRB Approves 2023 Resolutions and Elects Officers/Board Members

The board of directors of the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) association has released its 2023 resolutions and announced the results of its 2023 leadership elections, determining its elected officers for 2023 and board members for the class of 2026.

“NRB moved today to approve bold, timely resolutions that provide a signal to the Christian media world about our priorities as the leading international association of faith-driven communicators,” said Troy A. Miller, president & CEO of NRB. “I am appreciative to our board as they also made key leadership determinations, selecting leaders who will work to steward the future and the potential of NRB.”

Each year, NRB’s Board of Directors approves a new slate of resolutions expressing the association’s support or opposition to domestic legislation, cultural movements, judicial decisions, geopolitical or international issues, or events of particular importance to NRB members.

On Monday, May 22, at the annual NRB Convention, the Board of Directors unveiled six formal resolutions for 2023:

  • Affirming the Biblical and Traditional View of Gender—NRB affirms the biblical and traditional view of gender and opposes any and all disordered attempts to reduce the true reality of the male and female sexes to a relativistic spectrum.
  • Honoring the 75th Anniversary of Israel—NRB celebrates and honors the 75th anniversary of Israel’s independence in the modern era, calls on its members to pray for the wellbeing of Jerusalem, including a future of stability and peace in the region.
  • Maintaining Access for Christian Broadcasters in the Video Marketplace—NRB resolves that the FCC should refresh MB Docket 14-261 to explore and understand more recent changes in the local television marketplace and their impact on the public interest.
  • Opposing Weaponization of the Federal Government—NRB opposes all weaponization of the federal government to strike down and silence Christian viewpoints, maintaining that civil rights liability for constitutional violations should be strictly enforced against any federal government agency and any private entity with whom they have collaborated to deny free speech and equal protection.
  • Preserving AM Radio—NRB shall advocate for the preservation and promotion of AM radio as a critical platform for religious broadcasting and support policies and initiatives favorable to the continued operation of AM radio stations.
  • Resolving to Stand Firmly on Scripture—NRB urges Christian leaders and all Christian communicators to stand firmly on the historic truth of Scripture and to endeavor to pass faithfulness to the word of God from generation to generation.
