Preachers of L.A. is a reality television series that follows the lives of six pastors in Los Angeles as they navigate their way through the ups and downs of their ministries and personal lives. The show aired on Oxygen from October 9, 2013, to December 14, 2016, and featured pastors such as Jay Haizlip, Ron Gibson, and Mandell Frazier.

The show is centered around the pastors' churches and the congregations they serve. It is focused on the pastors' daily lives and allows the viewers to see a different side of these individuals as they go about their day-to-day routines. The show aimed to shed light on the struggles that pastors face, including balancing their duty to the church with personal responsibilities.

Each pastor has a unique story and background, which viewers learn about throughout the show. For example, Jay Haizlip, the lead pastor of the Sanctuary Church in Orange County, used to be a professional skateboarder before he found God. He struggled with addiction before turning his life around and becoming a pastor. Ron Gibson, the pastor of Life Church of God in Christ, is known for his fiery sermons and tough love approach to ministry. He has a son who is also a pastor and is heavily involved in his church.

The show also highlights the pastors' families and relationships. It gives the viewers an intimate look into their personal lives and the challenges that come with being a public figure. For example, some of the pastors are married to other pastors, which can be difficult as they compete for leadership roles within the church. The show explores how the pastors balance their roles as spiritual leaders with their roles as husbands and fathers.

One of the main themes of the show is the issue of money within the church. The pastors are shown dealing with financial struggles, such as trying to pay for a new building or trying to maintain their current church. There is also a focus on the luxurious lifestyles that some pastors live, including expensive cars, homes, and clothing. The show attempts to tackle the issue of whether it is appropriate for pastors to live such extravagant lifestyles while their congregations struggle.

Throughout the show, the pastors are faced with various challenges and conflicts, both within and outside of their churches. For example, they deal with scandalous rumors that threaten to harm their reputations, as well as conflicts with rival pastors who challenge their authority. The show depicts how the pastors handle these situations and the lessons they learn from them.

Overall, Preachers of L.A. is an entertaining and insightful show that offers a unique perspective on the lives of pastors in Los Angeles. It explores the challenges and conflicts that come with leading a church and provides a behind-the-scenes look at the personal lives of these individuals. The show is one of the few that seeks to tackle the issue of money within the church and offers a thought-provoking commentary on the subject.
