After months of waiting, casting and even a pilot, religious dating series It Takes a Church has been green-lit by GSN for eight episodes. These eight hour-long episodes are set to premiere in the Summer of 2014, alongside Season 3 of American Bible Challenge which is also expected to premiere in Summer 2014.
41-year old contemporary Christian singer-songwriter Natalie Grant will host It Takes a Church.
It Takes a Church was first proposed in the first 2013-14 upfronts and a production team was put behind this series in June. Natalie Grant hosted a pilot back in October which did not catch a lot of buzz. It Takes a Church has been noted by the media as "a faith based dating show", gathering similar attention as mega-hit American Bible Challenge did in mid-2012.

As for GSN's current originals, watch The Chase tonight at 8pm Eastern for its last new run until after the new year.
