Past winners of the Rich Mullins Artist Impact Award include Casting Crowns, Steven Curtis Chapman, MercyMe, TobyMac, Amy Grant, and others.

In a video recording presented at Momentum 2021, Joel and Luke shared: "The fact that this award comes from our closest partners in spreading music across America and around the world is not lost on us. In any year, this is an award that we would not take lightly, but the fact that this has taken place in a year that has been so hard for all of us is doubly impacting. We hope to be with you in the near future."
