Perennial student Elliot James has racked up many degrees and is contemplating another to continue postponing life.

When his roommate forced Elliot to find a job, he applied for the secretarial position at Bethel Community Church. But, in a case of mistaken identity, the ranking church officer thought Elliot was the perfect candidate for the open pastoral position.

He must become a pastor in a hurry because the church is falling apart. The church needed a jolt and Elliot needed a job.

Find out what happens when a novice minister finds himself in the driver’s seat of a church? Will the church find their perfect pastor, or will they send him packing?
