Storyline

When her father unexpectedly falls terminally ill, exotic dancer Jessica "Jesse" Brown returns home for the first time in more than a decade. Her father's dying wish - that she take over as head of Mount Olive Baptist Church - turns her life and her family's life upside down. Jesse accepts her father's commission, thereby pitting herself against her sister and most of the leadership at Mount Olive who know her sordid past. Through accepting her father's request, Jesse embarks upon a course that changes her world forever. Not only does she reconnect with her family and her teenage son, but she also finds the dignity and self-love she lost so long ago. Written by R.Frear

One of the best TV movies i've seen in a long time.
22 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I heard about this film it was doing an interview with the film's director, Sons of anarchy alum Rockmond Dunbar. I said I have to check it out. I have to be honest, I am not the biggest fan of made-for-TV movies. Most of them are to cheesy for my taste. but I was pleasantly surprised by how good the film was. Jessica Jesse Brown an exotic dancer played brilliantly by Sally Richardson Whitfield returns home after her father falls ill. Her father's dying wish is for her to take over as head of the church. She honors her father's wish which does not sit too well with her sister, and the other leaders of the Mount Olive Baptist Church. I know from this description it sounds like a updated version of the prodigal son. Although there are similarities to the parable of the prodigal son I believe the film is so much more. The film is filled with familiar faces. Nicole Ari Parker who played Tonya Jesse's sister did a fantastic job playing someone who could be considered unlikable by some people. Michael Beach and Tasha Smith are good at playing butt holes. Keith David who played Pastor Brown was brilliant as usual. I can watch him read the telephone book. The rest of the all-star cast gave master class performances. I especially like how the film did not water down the gospel of Jesus Christ. The use of Bible Scripture in the film was well done. The film was well balanced with feel-good family entertainment, and real-world relevance. Pastor Brown was one of the best TV movies I've seen since Roots. I was thoroughly entertained and encouraged, and I think you will be as well.
