Meet Jesse Custer. A man who cuts all ties to his life of crime and returns to dusty Annville, Texas, to take over his father's church. His goal is to "save this town."
Played by Dominic Cooper, he is the main character of AMC's "Preacher," the comic book-based show, also starring Ruth Negga and Joseph Gilgun, that just began its second season.
As a young pastor, Jesse Custer, commonly called "Preacher", struggles with the demands the church people place on him. He struggles to keep attracting visitors as a megachurch starts up nearby. But, most of all, he struggles with knowing whether or not God is really present, whether he is hearing from God, and whether he is telling people what God wants them to hear.
However, he isn't the only one in Annville who wants to know where God is.
