In the premiere of this comedy about Boyce "The Voice" Ballentine, a famous R&B singer who becomes a minister and moves his family to St. Louis to take over his father's church, the Ballentines notice that not all of their belongings made the trip.
Boyce wrestles with a moral dilemma when the choir director urges him to find ringers for a singing competition. Meanwhile, Lolli hires Stamps to wash hair at the salon, but she becomes suspicious of his shampooing methods.
When Boyce is at a loss for words, Lolli asks his old writing partner, Sweet Brown Taylor, to help him find his voice; Barton and Stamps install an alarm system in Boyce's office but manage to lock themselves inside.
Lolli hosts a tea party for the church's female parishioners that gets out of control when Boyce's cousin adds booze to the punch. Meanwhile, the future of Boyce's church is in the hands of a powerful clerical organization.
A former backup singer of Boyce's who also became a preacher—but at a much bigger church—decides to give up the spotlight and wants Boyce to break the news to his congregation. Meanwhile, Barton asks Lolli for romantic advice.
A family trip to Las Vegas for rest and relaxation turns into anything but when Barton is tempted by sin, Lolli clashes with the church ladies, and Stamps steals Boyce's spot in a round of celebrity golf.
