Preachers of Atlanta premieres Wednesday and showcases a new generation of unconventional pastors unafraid to break down boundaries.

Pastor Kimberly Jones-Pothier and Pastor Le’Andria Johnson stopped by theGrio to talk about how they are confronting head-on some of the most sensitive and polarizing issues in America today and ultimately igniting conversations in their community.

Johnson, who’s also a Grammy-winning recording artist, took a moment to defend some of her unique methods, including passing out cigarettes and condoms to those in need, and even dressing like a prostitute to minister to women consumed by sex work.

“20 cigarettes, 20 people smoking them… they all came to church,” Johnson said. “They’re still coming to church. So it works. The method works.”

“Condoms, I’m not going pass them out to some 10-year-old girl or some 12-year-old boy, but there are transgender men and women and then you have prostitutes… ‘Here’s a condom.’ At least be safe. How can the world practice safe sex and the church can’t?” Johnson added.

Be sure to tune in for the premiere of Preachers of Atlanta Wednesday at 10/9c on Oxygen.
