The ministry’s former spokesman had appeared in national media explaining why he as a Christian trusts the COVID-19 vaccine. Daniel Darling, an evangelical author and the spokesman for NRB (National Religious Broadcasters), spoke out this month about his decision to get the COVID-19 vaccine in an op-ed in USA Today and a segment on MSNBC.
