A broadcaster with the Seventh-day Adventist Church made a stop in Hagerstown Sunday night after completing some filming at Gettysburg (Pa.) National Military Park.

Pastor John Bradshaw produces regular segments for the program “It Is Written,” which airs on television networks and channels like the Discovery Channel, the Hope Channel through DIRECTV and the Three Angels Broadcasting Network through the DISH Network, said Curt Dolinsky, who does development work for the program.

Bradshaw, who appeared at the Hagerstown Seventh-day Adventist Church on Robinwood Drive, produces 30-minute programs that often are shot in communities he visits, Dolinsky said.

To produce his shows, Bradshaw concentrates on a local issue, like the Civil War, Dolinsky said.

Bradshaw might focus on how soldiers in the war were committed to their respective causes, even to the point of death. He will then draw parallels with how people are committed in their faith, Dolinsky said.

Bradshaw is diversified in delivering his word.

He also offers a daily one-minute devotional on the website and for people who cannot read or write, he offers his programs on an MP3 player, which he refers to as the “God Pod,” Dolinsky said.

Bradshaw appeared on the stage of the local church with his wife and recounted other trips he has made to nearby Gettysburg.

Bradshaw vowed that if he ever returned to the region, he would have to do some filming at Gettysburg.

“The scenery is so wonderful and the stories are so great,” Bradshaw said.

Bradshaw said he hoped to deliver an inspirational message about Jesus Christ to the 85 people present Sunday so they would be convinced that “you will be His and He will be yours.”
