“Like so many megachurches in America, Greenleaf World Ministries is more than just a house of worship,” OWN said in a statement last year. “It’s a home. But beneath its steeple lies a den of iniquity.” 

Greenleaf will premiere over two nights on OWN: Tuesday, June 21 at 10 p.m. ET/PT and Wednesday, June 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
