TLC Singer Meets Pastor Whose Video Sermons Inspired Her to Return to Faith


Singer Chilli from the popular R&B group TLC flew to Nashville, Tennessee, on Thursday to meet the pastor of Amazing Facts Christian Media Ministries whom she says greatly impacted her recent return to the Christian faith.

In an interview with The Christian Post, Chilli explained that she flew from Atlanta to Nashville to meet Pastor Doug Batchelor at NRB, a week-long conference that was held in the Gaylord Opryland Hotel to unite religious leaders in all forms of media.

She shared that she grew up Seventh-day Adventist but had wandered away from the faith throughout her career. Although she’s still busy touring, the entertainer recently returned to her Christian faith in the past few years after discovering Batchelor through his live stream videos.

Chilli explained that she often watched Batchelor on the Lifetime channel along with Pastor Charles Stanley, David Jeremiah and Joel Osteen on Sunday mornings. She was always drawn to Batchelor in particular and after doing more research on him, she realized his ministry was also derived from the Seventh-day Adventist belief.

“I CANNOT believe I just met my hero and pastor, Pastor Doug and his lovely wife Karen! Thank u Jesus!” Chilli wrote on her Instagram page along with the above photo. “Thank you @enchantedpr for this moment. I will never forget this.”
