NRT exists to inspire, inform and encourage people by sharing the art, Gospel message, and ministries of Christian artists and creatives with a growing spirit of excellence. He has an energetic and enthusiastic approach to Christian parenting and is the father of two tweens.
NewReleaseToday–originally known as NewReleaseTuesday.com–went online in August of 2002 with one goal in mind: to inform Christian music fans of new releases every single week. Originally developed as an online resource to let people know about album release dates each week, the site grew beyond the confines of its industry-leading Tuesday updates, branching out into radio, daily news updates, live broadcasts and even touring and fan experiences at concerts.
The NRTeam, an unique online community for NewReleaseToday, was introduced in June 2007 along with a complete site redesign. NRTeam members can connect with each other, post their own blogs, add artist and author profiles, music and book reviews, music videos, song lyrics and more, all while earning NRT Points for FREE prizes and music!
Podcast Focus: Kevin believes Christian parents should be engaging their kids with media resources that are relevant and inspirational, his perspective on Christian music and media is insightful and encouraging for parents who are looking to find alternatives to modern entertainment.
Key Quote from this Podcast: “Music is a media form that all tweens and teens gravitate towards, no matter their age or stage, schooling or sophistication, kids all love music and we need to engage our kids where they are at! ”
