That’s right, Pastor Marvin Sapp has a brand new reality show on the way entitled “Single Dad”. The show will follow the now widowed Pastor Sapp as he balances life as a Pastor who “sings”, raising his three children, a business man, and fighting off the women who constantly tell him the Lord told him they are his new wife.
