National Religious Broadcasters Creates New Christian Film Committee
Manassas, Va. – The National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) Board of Directors has established a Film Standing Committee to serve the unique interests of Christian film professionals within the NRB community.
The newly created group will join NRB’s seven other committees – Church Media, Intercollegiate, International, Internet, Music Licensing, Radio, and Television – in serving and representing their respective constituencies and in advancing the overall mission of the world’s pre-eminent association of Christian broadcasters and communicators.
Dr. Ted Baehr, founder and publisher of Movieguide® (www.movieguide.org), will serve as the Film Standing Committee’s first Chairman. Other members of the committee include: Erik Fritjofson (President of Media; Love Worth Finding Ministries), Isaac Hernandez (Vice President; Parables.TV), Honnie Korngold (Founder and President; CineVantage), Scott Link (President; Pup Tent Media), Torry Martin (Co-Founder and President; Torrent Brothers Productions), Nina May (Producer, Director, Writer; Renaissance Women Productions), Guy Noland (Executive Producer/Director; SAVN.TV), Matthew Pickart (Freelancer; Pick-art Productions), Paul Sirmons (Independent Filmmaker), Bill Stevens (General Manager; CHRI), and Andrew Walkington (Director, Executive Producer, and Writer; True Films Ltd.).
“I am delighted that the NRB Board of Directors has decided to add a Film Standing Committee to our organizational structure,” commented NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson. “In so doing, they have created a mechanism by which the association can better serve a group of dynamic communicators and artists who are committed to using their gifts to impact the world with Christian messages. We are excited about this development.”
Among the ways Standing Committees render valuable and helpful assistance to the NRB is by:
• Developing educational and training opportunities made available through NRB conventions and other venues.
• Identifying and developing specific member benefits that will strengthen the ability of NRB members to fulfill their ministry purpose.
• Evaluating industry developments, trends, and technologies that may impact the ability of NRB members to fulfill their mission.
• Providing relevant news and information for inclusion in NRB communication devices to keep NRB members informed on important matters.
• In addition, all Standing Committee Chairs not already on the Board of Directors serve as ex-officio members of the Board.
