The finalist for the Digital Preachers Awards 2020 is finally out. The award is an annual ranking focused on celebrating Christian excellence in the digital space.
The Digital Preachers Awards is organized by Praise Catalogue. It aims to create awareness for the need to evangelize digitally in creative ways, encourage those who otherwise would not get recognition for their work as they often work ‘behind the scenes’, and to share best practice so that the church is better able to communicate the good news in a digital age.
The 2020 list has 5 new entrants; Christian Vibe Gh, Theophilus Forson, Celestine Donkor, Moses Ok Ministries and Akesse Brempong.
Digital Preachers Awards is an awards scheme that seeks to celebrate Christian excellence in the digital space.
