RNF’s work is guided by our board of directors, CEO, and staff.

The RNF Board, composed of leaders throughout the field of religion journalism, business, government, and more, are devoted to creating a strong organization that will promote RNF’s important mission of advancing religious literacy and supporting religion journalists.
