‘Church Rescue’ propels unlikely reality TV stars: church consultants

29

They’ve rescued bars and restaurants and shabby houses, but this month reality television stars are set to rescue something new.

Church Rescue” will debut Monday (Nov. 11) on the National Geographic Channel, featuring the most unlikely of reality TV stars: church consultants.

The series will feature three “Church Hoppers”: the Rev. Kevin “Rev Kev” Annas, a business analyst; the Rev. Anthony “Gladamere” Lockhart, a marketing specialist; and the Rev. Jerry “Doc” Bentley, a spiritual counselor.

“The Church Hoppers exist to build balance in church through systems, business and marketing,” said Lockhart, who like his fellow rescuers comes out of the Southern Baptist Convention.

      I suppose the Men in Black look is deliberate, but they simply look like idiots which I suppose makes for good television.

      Presumably they are on a “mission from god”. But I’ll bet they’re a lot less fun than Jake and Elwood.

  1. Check out the statistics on just how many U.S. churches have been leveled by earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and forest fires over the last 10 years. I wonder if they’ve got any creative ideas about rescuing houses of worship from the damage apparently caused by the God that is being worshiped?

  2. The litany of ratings-chasing, un-scientific nonsense being churned out by the formerly-respectable National Geographic Channel (et al) is deeply depressing. You can almost feel yourself getting stoopider watching this stuff.

  4. God will provide – but apparently he´s behind with his payments. And don´t you love the pastor who insists, “I´m in charge here. Me and God”? How´s your assistant shaping up, Reverend?

  5. To market it correctly, it should air right after the “Finding Bigfoot” reality (really?) show. Perhaps the RD foundation should sponsor their own “reality” show to follow Bigfoot and Space Aliens “reality” television shows to try and educate people what “reality” is all about? We could lure them in by coming up with a title like “Finding God”.

      There’s is something eery and odd about religion and reality TV. Can’t put my finger on it, but something strange about reality and religion in the same TV show.

      Given how “real” most reality shows are, I see this as more of a redundancy than a conflict.
