Some weeks ago, we told you about Preachers of L.A, a reality TV show set to hit the airways this fall. The show gives a candid and revealing look at six boldly different and world renowned mega-pastors in Southern California (Deitrick Haddon, Bishop Noel Jones, Bishop Clarence McClendon, Pastor Wayne Chaney, Bishop Ron Gibson and Pastor Jay Haizlip), who are willing to share diverse aspects of their lives, from their work in the community and with their parishioners to the very large and sometimes provocative lives they lead away from the pulpit.
“The Bible says I wish above all things that you would prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers. I believe that,” declares Bishop Clarence McClendon, one of the stars of the show in the trailer posted to YouTube last Thursday.
“P. Diddy, Jay-Z, they’re not the only ones who should be driving Ferraris and living in large houses,” says cast member Bishop Ron Gibson, a former gang member who now ministers to 4,500 people each week at Life Church of God in Christ.
“I’m a pastor, but at the end of the day, I’m a man,” declares music minister Dietrick Haddon who shares raw details of relationship failures and fathering a baby out of wedlock.
The trailer was posted via YouTube last Thursday, June 27, and there is little wonder why it already has generated the much controversy it has. Check it out and let us know what your take is.
