Church Finance Today, a publication of Christianity Today International, was named as the Award of Excellence winner in the newsletter category by the Evangelical Press Association (EPA) at the annual convention, held May 4-6 in Chicago. The contest honors the best work done by EPA publications during the 2010 calendar year.
Both the writing and design of Church Finance Today were highly praised by the EPA. "The writing is direct, to the point, and very Wall Street Journal in styling, entirely appropriate for its subject matter," the contest judge wrote. "The design is an excellent example of professional quality newsletter design."
