MooPig Wisdom doesn't like to toot its own horn ... well, on second thought, we do toot our own horn ... a lot ... but we see NATGEO TV has used our idea for yet another reality show. We would have called it Church Report Card ... but they have enlisted three hunky men to gather information about a struggling church out there. Then they propose a fixer up plan, and go through the process of what amounts to storefront architectural re-hab. They call it CHURCH RESCUE TEAM, featuring the Church Hoppers.
MooPig Church of the Beach Department thinks it is pretty cool now that NATGEO has filmed its first few episodes. Our guys went out and printed some T-shirts and caps with "Church Report Card" on them. Then they issued this statement:
"As you might have known, we advertise MooPig is enemy of bombast. However, it is revolutionary that we at MooPig A-and-E with unanimous aplomb decide that bombast does in fact have a place in our simulations of Church of the Beach formats. We have come to realize that bombast in its rawest form serves skeletal ambitions like War and Faith. So, bombast is our friend in this newest buona-venture, as ludicrous as that is."Maybe someday our editorial groups will sync with modern media in a MooPig Reality Show; like a barbecue or something.
Meet the Church Hoppers | National Geographic Channel: "Unfortunately, running a successful parish isn't as easy as just gathering your neighbors in praise. Forty percent of new churches fail within the first year and eighty percent go under in five years. "
" ... So what happens when a church is failing to thrive? Enter the Church Hoppers. The team is comprised of Kevin “Rev Kev” Annas, Anthony “Gladamere “ Lockhart, and Jerry “Doc” Bentley. Rev Kevin is the resident business guru, who applies his entrepreneurial experience to churches' finances and operations to make sure they're running smoothly. Gladamere is the crew's sales and marketing specialist, helping refine churches' brands and promote their message to the community. Doc is a counselor, motivational speaker and the Hoppers' Church Systems Analyst, getting to know each individual parish's faith to help the church meet its goals. ..."

"Rev Kev"...hahahaha! They had to add an extra sewage treatment plant in Caldwell county for all the people he crapped out of money. I hope he's had a change of heart, but his history sure doesn't leave him with a good testimony in running a "church business". I believe he may have a better career as a politician considering he has never run a business effectively. Personally, I wouldn't let him get his hands on my monopoly game money. NatGeo you guys need to do some background checks before buying a reality show.
