The more things change, the more they stay the same.

That was one of the themes of #NRB15 for me. 

We've seen many changes in Christian radio through the years -- technology and delivery platforms have emerged, social media has come on the scene,  ministry organizations, speakers and industry leaders may have changed,  and yet, the most important element of the NRB remains the same - our steadfast commitment to sharing the saving message of Jesus Christ.
