DESCRIPTION: (from BET's web site, September 2008) “Exalted!” is a ground-breaking, weekly series of one-hour biographies profiling extraordinary African-American ministers. Each week we will give audiences an up-close-and-personal glimpse into the multi-dimensional lives of one of God's chosen. We’ll follow ministers as they go back to their home towns and talk us through the trials and triumphs of their personal life journeys. We’ll also ask them to lead us back down the spiritual path that paved the way to them accepting this vital and rewarding mission. These documentaries will include interviews with ministers, select members of their staffs, friends, family and members of the congregation, along with reality footage of ministers preparing for sermons, performing ministerial duties and leading their everyday lives. “Exalted!” paints a vivid, intimate portrait of dynamic ministerial figures who bring hope and inspiration to the masses. It will inspire those interested in understanding what it means to live a life of powerful leadership and commitment as an African-American spiritual leader. Finally, “Exalted!” will tell the story of how each minister came to know God personally, and it will allow us to gain insight into the many spiritual, and human, lessons that have helped to shape his/her choice to follow God.
