The Evangelical Press Association board of directors has agreed to add EPA’s name as a cooperating organization for the 2020 Religion Communication Congress.
Since 1970, the Religion Communication Congress has been a once-a-decade gathering of professional religion communicators from a wide range of faith traditions. The Congress was established “to provide a forum to expand the experience and broaden the perspective of professional communicators in faith-based settings beyond their specialized work area.”
The conference will take place March 17-21, 2020, in Washington, D.C. This is believed to be the first time that EPA has signed on as a cooperating group.
The list of cooperating organizations spans the interfaith religious world. While EPA’s participation is not an endorsement of other religious faiths that are part of the Congress, it is an effort to join the conversation with cooperative, constructive and positive interaction.
The EPA board desires EPA to be more intentional about “having a seat at the table” with those outside the evangelical community.
