National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) is a non-partisan, international association of Christian communicators whose member organizations represent millions of listeners, viewers, and readers. Our mission is to advance biblical truth; to promote media excellence; and to defend free speech. In addition to promoting standards of excellence, integrity, and accountability, NRB provides networking, educational, ministry, and fellowship opportunities for its members.
The annual NRB International Christian Media Convention is the largest nationally and internationally recognized event dedicated solely to assist those in the field of Christian communications. The dynamic Exposition consists of around 200 companies and is an active marketplace for those seeking tools and services to expand their organizations.
We are so proud of our founder, David Mainse, as he was awarded with the 2014 NRB Media Award for International Individual Achievement at the convention. The NRB International Individual Achievement Award is presented each year to a non-U.S. resident/citizen who demonstrates a strong personal commitment to proclaiming Christ through electronic media, working with integrity and faithfulness to influence a culture for Christ.
While Crossroads has grown to reach many corners of the globe, David Mainse's goal remains the same: to share his deep faith in Jesus Christ with others and to see God relate in a very real way to each individual's life. Born in Campbell's Bay, Quebec, and raised in a rural area near Canada's capital city of Ottawa, Ontario, David Mainse had the influences of the rural environment and his parents who were missionaries and educators to inspire him to take a message of hope and love to the world.
