Tamara is not only the daughter of Dorothy Spaulding, but is also a producer/host of Watchmen Broadcasting. She has a heart for the youth and has been host of the hit program Roc House Cafe'. As an Ordained Minister, her focus is on Youth Ministry. She has a burning passion to make a difference in the youth of this generation. When she ministers, lives are changed.
Her past experience as a Special Events Coordinator brings great value to Watchman Broadcasting for our special events. For years she also had her own Christmas Decorating Business, decorating for the University of Florida, the Olympic Party and other huge events.
At the height of her success story, she called her mother and said, "God told me ?to lay it down and help my mother, if I did, He would bless me." This would be a huge decision because she was running large crews of people and make a lot of money. The bill for just one of her events was $150,000. Working for her mother, she would start at just above minimum wage.
God did bless her with a great husband, who also serves in the ministry and two children. This was her heart's desire.
Tamara is also the Vice President of Watchmen Broadcasting. God has gifted Tamara in many ways. She has great discernment and can make good decisions. Because of her mother's mercy gifts, her discernment is so important. She oversees so many areas at Watchmen Broadcasting. One of Tamara?s Ministry gifts is reaching down and loving those who are hurting or in need. She walks in the compassion of Christ. Tamara is a great blessing to Watchmen Broadcasting. Tamara also has a heart for missions and has served in Mexico, Cuba, India and Indonesia.

Chris went to Savannah College of Art and Design where he studied the art of movie making. He animated the Jetsons for Century 21, worked with EXPN and for a company who did work for Budweiser, Frito-Lay and MSNBC.
