Preachers of L.A.
Entertainment, Reality, Drama, Religious
"Preachers of L.A." turns the spotlight on six celebrity pastors who practice in the city that is, appropriately, known as the City of Angels. In addition to the preachers' work in the community and with their parishioners, the show highlights the dynamic lives the men lead when away from the pulpit, including the struggles they face as husbands, fathers and friends. The women who stand behind the church leaders are also featured. The cast includes Bishop Noel Jones, the brother of singer Grace Jones, who leads a church full of celebrities; the Rev. Dietrick Haddon who, as the son of a bishop and an evangelist, has been preaching since the age of 11 and conducted the church choir at 13; and Bishop Ron Gibson, who joined a gang by the age of 16 and eventually turned his life around to start a small church that has grown to a congregation of about 4,000 members.
