There’s a hilarious new series of comedy skits that poke fun at how some Christians essentially “church shop” in an effort to find the house of worship that best fits their needs.
The aptly titled “Church Hunters” series features comedian John Crist who, alongside his girlfriend, is looking for a very specific set of elements, characteristics and features in a church.
“The churches we go to now, just not for us, just not really doing it, you know?” Crist said in part one of the series, as his girlfriend added that the couple is looking for a “serious, yet fun” church with a pastor who has “the humor of Andy Stanley with the body of Steven Furtick.”
So, after the couple takes a personality test, the mock show’s host takes them on a tour of a house of worship, breaking down the ins and outs of worship, sermon content and plenty more.
As you can imagine, the difficult-to-please duo aren’t too impressed with what they observe:
Episode two, which Crist released on Monday, picked up where the first episode left off, with Crist and his girlfriend touring yet another church in an effort to find their perfect fit.
This time, they said they were looking for a church that felt like a “TED talk with a Bible verse” — one that left them inspired.
“I connect in worship more when the leader is attractive,” Crist said.
Watch part two of “Church Hunters” below:
Not surprisingly, the couple — who weren’t happy with the second church’s five separate Sunday service times and wondered why there isn’t one at 2:15 p.m. — rejected the church, paving the way for a part three in the comical series.
As The Christian Post noted, the videos are essentially “satirizing how people tend to make it all about themselves when choosing churches,” something that has been the focus of complaints and critique in some Christian circles.
