“The American Bible Challenge,” hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy, premiered Thursday night on the Game Show Network and combined elements of faith and fun while contestants played to win money for their favorite charities.

At the end of the season, winning teams will also have the opportunity to compete for $100,000.
The premiere episode had its share of heartwarming moments, as individuals from each team – Minnie’s Food Pantry, the Suburban Saints and the Gospel Geezers – shared their stories as a part of the show’s introduction.
