Another Christian artist throws her hat into the television arena. GSN announced today it has given the green light to original series “It Takes A Church,” with 2014 Grammy® Nominee and multi Dove Award winner Natalie Grant as host. The network has ordered eight episodes of the series, which is scheduled to debut in mid-2014.
Each week, “It Takes A Church” visits a congregation from across the country to surprise one unsuspecting single with the news that they’re about to be saved from the dating world. The church’s Pastor will task their congregation of cupids to find the best possible matches for the dater. At the end of the matchmaking competition, the unattached parishioner will decide which suitor to put his or her faith in. The congregant who brought The Chosen suitor will make a difference to their church by winning a donation on its behalf.
“I’m so excited to host “It Takes A Church” and have the opportunity to interact with churches all across America to bring a family friendly show based on Christian faith and values,” says Natalie Grant.
“Church has been such an anchor and source of hope in my own life, and I look forward to showing the sense of community that can be found in the local church.”
Natalie Grant was nominated last week for two Grammy® Awards, in the categories Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance and Best Christian Music Song for the single “Hurricane.”
