Oxygen's Rich in Faith will put the life of pastor's kid Rich Wilkerson Jr. on display come December.  

"Rich is smashing stereotypes about religion with his successful young adult ministry, the Vous," Oxygen says of their new show. "But to whom much is given, much will be required, as Rich and DawnCheré must balance the challenges of being young pastors while supporting their marriage and breaking out on their own to start a church. Ready for a new chapter and driven by their love, they are eager to share their innovative and thought-provoking ministry with believers and non-believers alike." 

If the Wilkerson last name rings a bell, it's because the young pastor is the son of Peacemakers founder Rich Wilkerson Sr., who is the cousin of deceased evangelist and prophet David Wilkerson

But Wilkerson Jr. gained fame in his own right beyond the charismatic circle when he conducted the wedding ceremony for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.  

Kardashian and West met Wilkerson when they attended a service at his VOUS Church in Miami.  

Rich in Faith will show Wilkerson's work beyond the pulpit, though. According to Oxygen, viewers will see the Wilkersons in action feeding the homeless and praying for the sick.  

"There's no one else you want in your corner more than Rich and DawnCheré," said executive producers Giuliana Rancic and Jason Kennedy. "From the famous to the nameless, their love for people is evident, and we are honored that we get to share their story and words of hope with Oxygen viewers." 

Rich in Faith will premiere Dec. 9.
