It Takes a Church is a dating reality show that aired on the Game Show Network (GSN) in 2014. The show's premise is centered around congregations within various communities that come together to assist a single young member in finding love. The show is hosted by the acclaimed Christian music artist Natalie Grant, who guides viewers through the process of finding love within a church community. Natalie travels the country to visit different congregations and works with the pastors and church members to select an eligible bachelor or bachelorette within the church community.

Often, the selected bachelor or bachelorette is unsure of the process and is hesitant to put their love life in the hands of their fellow congregants. However, with the encouragement of Natalie and the church community, each contestant is given the push they need to seek out potential partners in their church.

Once the contestant has been selected, the congregation comes together to offer their support and advice on finding the perfect match. This involves setting up blind dates and offering advice on dating and relationships. Each church member is dedicated to helping the contestant find the love they deserve, and they work as a team to make sure the process is enjoyable and successful.

The show is filled with heartwarming moments as each contestant goes on various dates with potential partners, and the church community continues to offer support and feedback along the way. Each episode ends with the bachelor or bachelorette making their final decision and revealing their chosen partner to the congregation.

What makes It Takes a Church stand out from other dating shows is the fact that the romantic connections are made within a church community. By relying on the church community, contestants are able to find partners who share their values and beliefs, which is often a deal-breaker for many people in the dating world.

The show's focus on faith and community is what sets it apart from the typical dating reality show. The contestants are encouraged to open up about their beliefs and values, which makes for a more meaningful and lighthearted viewing experience.

Overall, It Takes a Church is an entertaining and heartwarming dating reality show that captures the essence of faith and community. With Natalie Grant's guidance and the church's support, each contestant is given the chance to find love within their community and build meaningful connections with potential partners who share their beliefs and values.

It Takes a Church is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (17 episodes). The series first aired on June 5, 2014.
