Sam Bowman (Lead): He's selfish, pushy and charismatic. He puts his pastor work above family and all else. We need someone with a commanding presence and voice. Familiarity with Southern churches / lifestyle a Plus.
Beth Bowman (Lead): A perfect church wife who finally found her independence and voice. We need someone who can handle the emotions of reclaiming her own identity and have an authentic sista-girl quality. Familiarity with Southern churches/lifestyle a plus.
Zach Bowman (Supporting): He's a mama's boy and up who has unresolved issues with his father. We need someone who can handle the complexities of a tough exterior but show flashes of gentleness. Playboy charm a plus.
Deacon Mike (Supporting): The ever loving, bible quoting, sidekick. A funny yes man who's willing to grow. Comedic background preferred.
Jewel Bowman (Supporting): The perfect preacher's daughter with issues. She struggles with being obedient to her father's demands and wanting to be true to herself. Show an emotional struggle, yet be hip, edgy and a little brazen as her character grows. Familiarity with southern churches / lifestyle a plus.
