As early as February 2023, the INC Radio started recognizing the enthusiastic efforts of volunteer brethren from its satellite studios in Northern Luzon, Southern Luzon, Mega Manila, and Visayas, which are all in the Philippines, as well as those in United States, Canada, Asia and Oceania.

On November 11, 2023, this media arm of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) gave awards, this time, to the staff of its satellite studios in Europe and Africa. “It’s an awarding for the best in each category but competition is never felt,” Des Acenas, INC Radio Executive Producer, observed. “Awardees called up on stage deserved the genuine happiness of everyone’s faces.”

The Ecclesiastical District of Italy North hosted the awarding ceremony in an events room at Meliá Milano, Via Masaccio, Milan, Italy, which served as the host site. There gathered the delegates from the satellite studios in Europe, which are named after the ecclesiastical districts respectively supervising these; that is, Central Europe, Italy North, Italy South, Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Spain, United Kingdom, and Western Europe. Their colleagues from their respective districts, as well as those in Africa, gathered at remote sites connected to the main venue through videoconferencing.

Brother Arnel Solano, INC Radio Station Manager, gave the opening remarks while Brother Randy Macalinao, supervising minister of Italy North District, for the closing remarks.

This event is one of the highlights of the year 2023 for all of us. This has made us stronger in the faith and more inspired in broadcasting in one voice transcending borders.”

“I’m overjoyed for this honor,” said Geraldine Doe who received the award for INC Radio Mediterranean Satellite Studio. “Attending this event has been an unforgettable experience as all of us in the studio fulfill our duties to make known in the whole world the Church Of Christ for God’s glory.”
