Natalie Grant is enjoying another entertainment milestone in hosting “It Takes A Church,” a new dating television show that premieres this Thursday, June 5.
“It Takes A Church” will follow Christian pastors across the U.S. who take on the role of matchmaker between single parishioners from their congregations who are looking for love. The new television series will give single Christians a chance to find true love inside the pews of their own church, and Grammy-nominated Grant will guide both the pastors and parishioners all along the way. Ahead of Thursday’s premiere of “It Takes A Church,” Grant spoke to The Christian Post about the dating show and reflected on her own experience finding “the one.”
“My husband and I often talk about what we are going to teach our kids, and my husband didn’t even ever go on a date until he was 23 years old,” the Christian singer said of Bernie Herms, her husband of almost 15 years. “We met and became best friends, a lot of people would call it dating but it was never really romantic until a year in, and then we decided to get married.”
Consequent to her own experience with dating, Grant was drawn to “It Takes A Church” since the series is “so much more than a dating show.”
