Genre: Reality, Religious
Premise: From bars to cars and seemingly everything in between, the reality TV rescue theme is ubiquitous. Adding churches to the mix is this entry from National Geographic Channel, which follows a team of ``faith experts'' who travel the country to help problem parishes see the light. Kevin ``Rev Kev'' Annas, Anthony ``Gladamere'' Lockhart and Jerry ``Doc'' Bentley church hop from a North Carolina ``Bapticostal'' sanctuary to a synagogue on Venice Beach, doling out tough love and wisdom along the way. Annas is the resident business guru who applies his entrepreneurial experience to congregations' finances and operations to ensure smooth going. Lockhart is the crew's sales and marketing specialist, helping refine churches' ``brands'' and promote their message to the community. And Bentley is a counselor and motivational speaker who analyzes each parish's spirituality to help it meet its goals.
