Preachers of L.A., the controversial new reality show featuring men of the cloth, premieres this week but you can watch a sneak peek of the full 1st episode in its entirety right here, right now!
Minister Deitrick Haddon, Pastor Wayne Chaney, Pastor Jay Haizlip, Bishop Ron Gibson, Noel Jones, and Bishop Clarence McClendon, are six pastors with fascinating backgrounds, strong faiths, beautiful women and a ton of material possessions.
In Episode 1, Deitrick Haddon faces his controversial past and makes his onstage ‘comeback’ with an explosive gospel show at Noel Jones’ church. Bishop Ron Gibson intervenes in a gang fight, and invites gang members to the show.
Afterwards, the pastors spend a lil quality time in Gibson’s ‘man cave,’ and things become contentious when Haddon questions McClendon’s material motives.

After watching the premiere episode, I can only surmise that these wealthy men of the cloth are all just men. All have relationship issues and every day problems.
At the end of the day, there are certainly no perfect people and even the anointed are flawed. The show is certainly entertaining, but all the sports cars, the mansions, the security and the extravagance begs the question… will the materialism dilute the message these pastors are trying to convey?
