“See Hear Love” set to launch on International Women’s Day
BURLINGTON, ON – March 6, 2017 – Crossroads Christian Communications, in partnership with Stronger Philanthropy, The Gideons International In Canada, International Justice Mission Canada, Tyndale University College & Seminary and Yonge Street Mission is pleased to announce the release of See Hear Love on March 8, 2017. Using a panel format, the show is hosted by former Full Circle “sofa sister” Melinda Estabrooks and is co-hosted by Cheryl Nembhard (Co-Founder at Exousia Media Group), Joanna la Fleur (Director of Creative Communications at C4 Church), Abby Paterson (blogger) and Kimberley Mitchell (Nashville co-host).
“I’m thrilled to be making my return to Crossroads through See Hear Love!” said Melinda Estabrooks, host and Executive Producer of See Hear Love. “Anyone who knows me will tell you that I’m passionate about connecting with women – discussing resources, sharing our stories and growing in faith together. My hope is that this new web show would bring together not only Canadian Christian women but Christian women from around the world, of all denominations, ages and ethnicities in a way that’s never been done before… and how fitting that our first show will air on International Women’s Day!”
See Hear Love delivers a new platform for women to tune in as Melinda, her co-hosts and other special guests discuss social justice issues, Scripture, other trending topics and highlight other women around the world, from a unique, Canadian, Christian, women’s perspective. The web show format provides an interactive forum for women, not only in Canada, but internationally, to join the conversation through Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and the See Hear Love website.
“Crossroads is pleased to announce our first foray into the web series format,” said Lorna Dueck, Chief Executive Officer of Crossroads Christian Communications and YES TV. “We’re committed to providing excellent, relevant, Christian media content and we believe that See Hear Love will allow us to share the unchanging message of God’s love with a younger generation of viewers.”
Airing online on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays, See Hear Love reaches women where they are, by providing them with regular, fresh content, available online and accessible 24/7 at www.seehearlove.com.
