Season 6, Episode 17 Let the Church Say Amen

First Aired: March 29, 2005

“Let the Church Say Amen” follows members of World Mission for Christ in Washington, D.C.'s tough Shaw neighborhood for a year. It's a quietly powerful film (except when Pastor Bobby Perkins preaches---then it's not quiet at all). For all, their faith is their rock, and for Darlene Duncan, a mother of eight on welfare, “God stepped in,” and she's accepted into a nursing-assistant program.
