Influence Garners Christian Publishing Awards
Evangelical Press Association honors magazine
Influence magazine received eight awards, including an Award of Merit, during the recent Evangelical Press Association (EPA) convention in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
The EPA awards, announced annually in April, honor the best in Christian publishing from the previous calendar year.
The Award of Merit is based on overall publication quality, including writing, content, imagery and design.
“I’m proud of Influence’s team of writers, editors, and designers, whose
