Sometimes life's winding road is paved with trials; storms challenge our faith, and mountains block our way. But where two or more are gathered God is in the midst. Welcome to the Holy Battalion Church of Christ. Where wives throw their husbands over church balconies, and the outside message board says "Come fellowship with us...or go to hell." Deacon Zacharias Wilson is the Head Deacon in a struggling Harlem Church. Wilson is devoted to serving his church and his community, but things aren't easy, territorial gangs are tagging the building, the mortgage is way past due, and rich real estate mogul Reginald Graham wants to buy the property and put up condominiums. To make matters worse, Deacon Wilson has taken up the wearisome task of keeping peace amongst the Brethren. The Storm clouds are gathering, and God has called on five men to battle the very forces that are rising up against the church: If only they could stop battling each other.
