Pastor Rich Wilkerson, Jr. is “not your typical pastor,” according to People Magazine. “I come from a different perspective,” the 31 year-old Florida native said. “I don’t think that people are interested in a bunch of religion, like telling me what I can and can’t do, but I think that people are interested in having a relationship with God.”
Wilkerson and his wife, DawnCheré, will have an opportunity to talk about their “different” perspective on faith in an upcoming TV show, Rich in Faith. The young, hip pastor who married Kanye West and Kim Kardashian last year, has made a career of pastoring some of the biggest celebrities in America, including the Kardashian family and Justin Bieber. Wilkerson’s brand of Christianity is steeped in what’s cool now, from his sermons based on popular songs to his undercut to his wardrobe. It’s a carefully curated presence.
