For the last year, our team has been working hard to plan the NRB 2021 Convention at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, Texas. After a long and difficult year in which many of our in-person gatherings, church services, and important meetings have been canceled or forced online, we are all looking forward to gathering in person again. What makes the NRB Convention unique is the networking, equipping, and fellowship among Christian communicators.  

As we worked to create more opportunities for that networking and fellowship to take place, our team came to the conclusion that while we could host an in-person event safely in March, many of you would be limited in your plans to attend or hold meetings during the event. We want NRB 2021 to be a valuable and safe experience for all those who attend.  

Today, we're happy to share good news – we are still planning to hold NRB 2021 as an in-person event, but we have made the decision to shift the event dates to June 21-24, 2021. These additional three months will enable more opportunities to network and fellowship without as many of the current restrictions and limitations due to social distancing recommendationsWith the additional time, increased effectiveness of treatments, and widespread availability of COVID-19 vaccines, June will be much closer to a full return to normal.  

We are also excited to have additional exhibitorssponsors, and speakers join us in June who were unable to attend in March – creating more valuable networking opportunities for you at the event. This later date also ensures that our international members and iNRB college participants will have a better chance of being able to attend.  

We are eager to gather again, and we know many of you are too. We look forward to seeing you in June! 

Now, more than ever, our world needs hope. As a Christian communicator, you play a vital role in sharing that hope with others. As we enter an increasingly hostile political and cultural environment for Christians, NRB will continue to work on your behalf. NRB 2021 is an important part of that work to equip, encourage, and advocate for you as you continue to spread the good news of the gospel. 

We’re excited to see you in June!
