When Peter Marshall, a bachelor, becomes head pastor of Greater Exploits of Love Christian Center, he is unaware of the conflict that awaits him. Sister Jezzy, the beautiful daughter of the previous pastor, will do anything to gain control of the position she believes is rightfully hers. While not outwardly expressing it, Peter has an attraction to Sister Jezzy. But when a private detective she hires discovers that they could be siblings, Peter questions his true identity.
Sister Jezzy’s scheme spills over into the lives of Jelani ‘The Mighty’ Reed, and Lydia Stevens. Sister Jezzy attempts to blackmail Marshall by befriending Lydia, a new member that is fond of the Pastor. Meanwhile, Lydia is forced to confront the life she thought was behind her, when her once high school friend and son’s father, is released from prison for raping her. She must deal with her fears before she can become the woman that Christ has made her.
Jelani is a well-known, chart topping Gospel rap artist who also serves as head of the youth group and music ministry at Greater Exploits. Friction starts when he is accused by Sister Jezzy of having inappropriate dealings with one of the youth. He must have the faith to rise above rumors being spread about him. When Pastor Marshall brings Sister Jezzy and Jelani before the entire congregation, true identities will be revealed. Greater Exploits of Love shows that in order for a person to become their best, they must first seek God’s Love and heed His Word.
