March 25, 2015 (Santa Monica, CA) - GSN, the leader in game shows and competitive entertainment, will premiere the second season of their hit matchmaking show, IT TAKES A CHURCH on Thursday, March 26 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Grammy®-nominated vocalist and multiple Dove Award winner, Natalie Grant, returns as host, visiting churches in California, Michigan, Tennessee, Alabama, Indiana and Wyoming, in hopes of finding love for one single congregant. Each week, IT TAKES A CHURCH travels to a different location, to surprise one unsuspecting single with the news that they're about to be saved from the dating world, as numerous matchmakers present people they believe would be a great match. However, it is not the bachelor/bachelorette who decides who they will get to know better…it's family, friends and those closest to them in the community! After a series of dates, one person will be chosen, and the matchmaker who brought the chosen suitor also wins a donation made to the church in their name.

Highlights in season two include special guest appearances by actors/performers David & Tamela Mann ("Madea's Big Happy Family") and musician Bo Bice ("American Idol"), plus a shocking surprise proposal. In its first season, IT TAKES A CHURCH was watched by over 6 million people and it achieved triple-digit growth among W18-49 (+113%) and nearly double the audience among W25-54 (+94%), P18-49 (+88%) and P25-54 (+70%) versus the YTD time period average.

IT TAKES A CHURCH is produced by Authentic Entertainment for GSN, with Tom Rogan and Lauren Lexton ("Flipping Out," "The Best Thing I Ever Ate") serving as Executive Producers along with Curnal Aulisio. Sean Kelly ("Minute to Win It") is Consulting Producer. Follow the show online at Twitter: @ItTakesAChurch and Facebook.com/ItTakesAChurch
