COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – This year’s annual Evangelical Press Association (EPA) convention came to a close on Friday, sending about 350 of today’s top Christian journalists back to their respective cities.
The final day of the annual gathering, which was themed “Refresh, Renew, Recharge,” hosted a variety of activities and culminated with the night’s final reception dinner. The major event for members of the press gave Christian writers and publication workers the opportunity to make media connections while at the same time rejuvenating them from the grind of constant updates.
Since 1948, the EPA has sought to “promote the cause of evangelical Christianity and to enhance the influence of Christian journalism.” Its annual gathering, which is generally held during the first full week of May, is the focal point of the EPA year and provides three days of learning, sharing, networking, and fellowship, as well as to conduct official association business.
Culminating this year’s gathering was the awarding of this year’s Awards of Excellence. Judges from all strains of publications gave notice to those periodicals, journals, and newspapers that have shown “overall excellence” in their works.
