well, i've already been here two months, and i've been upfront about my time here just being temporary until i take care of some things in new york. well, what's going on with that? you always sound so mysterious when you talk about it. let's just say things aren't as simple as they were when we were kids. remember we used to be runnin' around this church with no worries? you still think about him too. how can i not? i miss him. he was a great big brother. yeah. and he always looked out for you. you remember that time you climbed that fence after us and you got stuck at the top? oh no. no, no, no. i don't want to hear that story again! you were up there yellin' "help! ej help me!"
yes he did, without a second thought. no matter how much flack we gave him. yeah well a lesson was learned by all because i haven't climbed a fence since then. i should hope not. shut up! it's nice having you back. it's nice to be home. after you.

[congregation] yes! can you feel the spirit in this room! [congregation] yes! yes! there... is someone in here... who is going through something right now. [congregation murmurs] and if you accept jesus in your life,
[congregation murmurs in agreement] see, i am no different than anyone of you who are having trouble resisting the devil's temptation! [congregation] say it pastor! before i was saved, see, i would gamble all my money away. i would drink liquor for breakfast. and as much as i hate to admit it, i associated with... loose women. [congregation] testify! until i got the call from christ to change my life around and walk with jesus! [congregation cheers] it started with a simple step. now i'm asking you to take that step for yourself. and find christ and walk in his light. come, please come.

[dramatic music plays] [inaudible]
praise the lord gentlemen. how's everybody? so sorry to interrupt, but would you gentlemen mind if i had a moment with the pastor? [deacon smith] of course. no problem. [ella] thank you. i should kill you! do you think i'm stupid? what? do you think i wouldn't notice the missing money from my campaign account, evan? it's not as bad as you think. then you need to explain quick, fast, and in a hurry, because you are leaning on my last nerve with this mess. look i had to make some moves for the church and that was the only available cash. oh, church business? do you expect me to believe that? ella, you don't always know what goes on around here. then why don't you enlighten me, evan? do you think it's easy keeping up with the demands of you and this church? demands?
a plate charity functions. how do you think that that gets paid for? you'd be happy to spend every penny that comes through here. no, don't you try to turn this around on me. you think i don't know about your dirty ways all these years? all your, your gamblin' and your gutter deals you do behind closed doors? i grew up in this church watching my father do the same exact thing, so i know all about it. and i'm not just gonna sit back and let you ruin this opportunity for me. you know after everything, i thought that we were still a team. but now i see that it's every man for himself. so game on. [dramatic music playing]
[knocking] pastor, you wanted to see me? yes. uh, how are things with the ribbon cutting ceremony over at the clinic? great! everything's in place. you had a chance to look over your speech? yes. great job, great job, i can... i can always depend on you levi. thanks. yeah, i need you for something else now. name it. you know that uh, that thing that you did for me before? i need you to do that again. i thought you said that the last time was the last time.
i took a risk and it went, it went bad. and uh.. and now i'm-i'm-i'm in a real bind. how big of a bind? 50,000. how? we just got straight! when is it due? i'm already past due. look pastor you know how important you are to me and i would do anything to help you, but i can't do this right now, not with all the trouble i got back on wall street i just can't. every crime against man is not a crime against god. now you're the only one who can help me out of this mess. levi.
all you gotta do is throw the ball. my gosh... you know why you here? not exactly. what's up? the pastor's payment is light again. you got anything to say about that? look i've been leanin' on him hard. don't look like that from where i'm sittin' maybe we have a different definition of 'lean hard'. nah, i don't think so. you don't think so? nah i dont.

as i can remember, greater hope baptist church has grabbed the hand of this community and lifted it up. so today, we are officially saying thank you, by christening this building the evan johnson jr. clinic of hope. as mayor, it is my honor and a great pleasure to present a key to the city to pastor evan johnson who's hard work and diligence made this clinic happen. pastor? [crowd applauds] congratulations. thank you. let us all give praise to god. it was three years ago that we started this clinic. in one room... surprised they're not giving you the ket to the city today. pastor given you everything else.
s worried about everybody else's business. this is my business. i've been with this church a long time. unlike you, i never left. don't think you're just going to come in here and take over. i'm not trying to take over. i'm just trying to do the job i got hired to do. you've been at this church long enough, you ought to know the difference. [crowd applauds] yeah! [mother harris] good afternoon everyone. i have brought some freshly baked muffins for you today. oh my goodness! mother harris, you be doing to much. good afternoon everyone. please, please no. sorry im late. angela, can you give me a recap of the last meeting?
planning their annual block party. deacon smith is organizing our prayer breakfast. the food committee is coming together to make a menu. and brother miles submitted his budget needs for gospelfest. as we all know, the mass choir's up for their fifth consecutive win, so. amen. beautiful miles. thank you, pastor johnson. and congratulations on the grand re-opening of the clinic. that's pretty amazing. thanks to levi's diligence securing of low cost equipment and supplies, christie is set up for just about anything. we've been discussing replacing our executive pastor. ernie stills is retiring this year. now you know how important this position is to the church. - yes sir. - yes, yes indeed. the leader chosen is going to be our archangel of organization. this person is gonna have to transform and renew the church family. yes lord, amen. and bring about abundance of spiritual health.
alth without fiscal wealth. no sir! the church needs someone who is going to inspire hope and faith in their lives. without leadership, nations fall. churches fail. don't mess around and have church in here. now there is someone in here who embodies all of those qualities. i think god has led us to the right soul, in levi. wait, me? yes levi. i think this is a great platform for you. i think this is right in your wheelhouse. how you figure he has skills? he can't even keep his own life together. excuse me? ain't you runnin' from the law or something? that's enough miles. let he who is without sin cast the first stone. amen. now i have chosen levi to be our executive pastor. that is the final word.
