In Pastor Brown, a wayward preacher’s daughter, Jessica “Jesse” Brown, returns home for the first time in more than a decade after her father falls terminally ill.
Her father’s dying wish – that Jesse take over as head of the Mount Olive Baptist Church – turns her and her family’s lives upside down. Jesse reluctantly undertakes her father’s commission, thereby pitting herself against her sister and the leadership of Mount Olive Church who know of her sordid past. Through accepting her father’s request, Jesse embarks upon a path that will change her life when she reconnects with her family and estranged teenage son and finds the dignity and self-love she lost long ago.
Pastor Brown premieres on Lifetime on February 16th at 8pm.
