MCGI Wins KBP Golden Dove Award for KNC Show
KNC Show, the “Bible-based kiddie program on air,” was hailed as the Best TV Children’s program in the recent 22nd Golden Dove Awards in Pasay City, Manila on April 29, 2014.
The Members Church of God International (MCGI) produces the show, which airs on UNTV. KNC is short for Kawan ng Cordero, which when translated in English means Flock of the Lamb.
“We thank God for the honor given by the KBP Golden Dove Awards,” expressed Jovan Marquez, programming and productions assistant head of UNTV, as he received the award for the KNC show at the Star Theater, CCP Complex in Pasay City.
Marquez also thanked the Filipino broadcaster group for the recognition.
Now nearing its 10th year, KNC Show teaches children of different ages about art, nature, science and health while highlighting biblical stories and passages.
The Children of MCGI or the KNC as they are referred to in the Church, are taught in a similar fashion every Church service. There are curriculum-based lessons provided every KNC Bible school session.
MCGI Leaders Bro. Eliseo Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon make it a point to teach children early on about the Bible, following the Lord’s commandment in Proverbs 22:6.
Through the years, the show has received multiple Anak TV Seal awards for its kid-friendly content, where the Golden Dove award is the latest addition to the KNC Show’s list of laurels.
Other than the KNC Show, UNTV’s ‘Caring for the Elderly’ advocacy was also awarded by the KBP, receiving the Best Public Service Announcement title.
Earlier in 2014, MCGI’s flagship show Ang Dating Daan or The Old Path was honored as Best Longest-Running Religious Program in the 34th Dangal ng Bayan Awards.
The Golden Dove Awards is organized by the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas or the KBP. The annual event is “where broadcast practitioners, stations and programs are given recognition for their excellent contribution to the broadcast industry.”
