The first season of this groundbreaking half-hour comedy found Greg Wilson, a former gambling, drinking lost soul who comes to faith, answering the call to pastor a small-town church. With his casual dress and unconventional ways, Pastor Greg unwittingly stirs things up before winning over the church’s feisty congregation. In the process he helps his congregant clan discover some important truths about love, forgiveness, faith, and Gods family.
