Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding pastor and friend, Rich Wilkerson Jr., now has his own reality show on Oxygen called "Rich in Faith." His wife, DawnChere, who is also a pastor, will naturally be starring in the show alongside him.

In this new interview on the TODAY Show with Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, the fourth-generation Miami-based pastor explains what his show will be about and how he even ended up becoming friends with KimYe and, ultimately, how he ended up officiating their wedding.

"They just came to church a few years ago," Rich explains, when asked how he even met them. "I was on staff with my dad for a lot of years...and Kanye came to one of the services. I think people think it's crazy, but we just became friends. We still are great friends and we talk often."

As for being chosen as their wedding officiant, Rich says. "We were at their engagement and it was just sort of a natural progression to say 'hey, would you be a part of that special day?' and so for us, it was just a huge honor to get to be there."

Rich in Faith premieres Wednesday, December 9 at 10/9c on Oxygen.
