The Christian Post won four awards at this year’s Evangelical Press Association Christian Media Convention, which was attended by Christian ministries, nonprofits and media organizations from across the nation.
Dr. Richard Land, executive editor of The Christian Post, won second place for Editorial with his piece, titled “The Will Smith event: Why it matters.” Land said the slap seen by a billion people worldwide was “shocking, painful and inexcusable,” as Smith admitted, but also understandable.
The Christian Post’s 10-episode podcast series “Generation Indoctrination: Inside the Transgender Battle,” won second place in the Podcast category. This series was the impetus for CP’s first public event, “Unmasking Gender Ideology: Protecting Children, Confronting Transgenderism,” co-hosted by Summit Ministries and held at First Baptist Dallas in March, along with the free companion book, Exposing the Gender Lie.
Debuting last October and hosted by CP’s social commentator Brandon Showalter, “Generation Indoctrination” investigates the roots and influence of the transgender movement and its destructive impact on families. The series also offers hope and advice for parents on how to help children struggling with confusion about their sex. Part 2 of the series will be released later this year.
CP also won fourth place in the Critical Review category with “Texas megachurch glorifies the incarnation in ‘Gift of Christmas’ extravaganza” by Ian Giatti. The musical production performed at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas, featured a nearly 1,000-member cast and choir, live orchestra, zoo animals, and flying angels. Giatti described the event as “a visually stunning and biblically evocative production.”
In the Interview Article category, Ryan Foley won fourth place for his interview with Enes Kanter Freedom. In the article, titled “NBA player Enes Kanter Freedom shares the cost of his human rights advocacy,” the athlete details the struggles and discrimination his family in Turkey has faced under the regime of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
