Preachers of L.A. offers an inside look at the business and culture of Southern California-based evangelical ministries, in which preachers are often treated like celebrities, and where services often look like major Hollywood-like productions. It also reveals some of the roles the preachers' wives or "first ladies" play in the community, as well as the various ways that these preachers combine their spiritual calling with their entrepreneurial skills to make a living.

Some of the more voyeuristic moments feel forced as the preachers (and on occasion their partners) specifically discuss controversial issues, like charging for ministry services, having an entourage, and the lengths to which women will go to get a preachers' attention. Viewers might be surprised by some of the ministers' opulent lifestyles, too. Ultimately, what this show reveals is that despite the fact that these preachers answer to a higher power, they are also very human.
