Christian couple’s goal for TV show: Empowerment, edification and education

jeroline mccarthyLet’s zoom in on “Third Watch,’’ a Christian television evangelistic outreach tool, designed to reach a diverse audience and population. The program airs on Good Life TV 45 at 5 a.m. on Sunday mornings.

Through a dynamic and entertaining format of casual yet serious dialogue with real people interwoven with relevant sermon clips, viewers are captivated by this broadcast’s ability to speak directly to their needs and concerns.

151224_dt_palmcoast01“Third Watch’’ is locally produced in Flagler County by Drs. David and Danita Blow, who also host the program. In addition, Dr. David Blow serves as youth minister at the Mt. Calvary Baptist Church of Palm Coast, where the Rev. Edwin Coffie is pastor.

The hope of the Blows is that God will use the “Third Watch’’ broadcast to be a vehicle through which exposure can be given to issues of importance to the citizens of Flagler County and God-inspired prescriptions can be dispensed that can move our community forward.

“Each program has a topic, and the topic maybe anything from tattoos to sexuality, to the school board, to the elections, or whatever is going on at a particular time,” said Dr. David Blow.

“And, we go on to different venues and locations such as barbershops, such as the park. We’re even going to do an episode upcoming in the hospital, and then, we will talk about health care issues, and so forth,” he continued. “And then, we will find different sermons…and we will try to find points of discernment that support or give meat to whatever the discussion is talked about because everything has to be anchored in the Word of God.”

Flagler Democrats dine with Taylor
State Rep. Dwayne Taylor (D-Daytona Beach) recently met supporters to jump-start his campaign in Flagler County for Florida’s 6th congressional district. A reception at the Palm Coast Golden Corral was a side effect of Taylor’s campaign.

A suggested donation was set at $20.16, where many Flagler County Democrats far exceeded the proposed amount. Taylor is seeking the seat now occupied by Ron DeSantis, a Republican, who’s opting for the U.S. Senate seat now vacated by Marco Rubio, whose eyes are on the presidency.
