July 2002

Virginia Beach, VA - Each year, the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) holds it's Jesus Values Excellence Awards®. The ceremony is also broadcast at 2 a.m. the following morning on NBC. This year, a star studded crowd of America's finest religious people showed up for the event. They were treated to a seven course meal, live entertainment, scripture readings, and Rev. Pat Robertson entertained the crowd by pulling a few amazing religious stunts out of his Pentecostal bag of tricks.

For Landover Baptist Platinum Level tithers, it was a night to remember. Awards were given in almost every conceivable category. For parishoners who were not able to afford the $2,000.00 a seat reservation, it can only be said that it was well worth the money. If you were unable to make it this year, we listed the top six categories below. Each category winner has a links to amazing stories of Christian Excellence!
