”As the founder of the Tennessee-based Remnant Fellowship Church and the Weigh Down Workshop – a massively successful Christian-based diet program that preached the virtue of a slim waist and the power of prayer for weight loss – Gwen Shamblin Lara was a rare woman to lead a Southern megachurch.”
The description further states:

”As her church grew across the nation, so did her iron-fisted grip as its leader—accumulating power and money, while creating a larger-than-life public persona with dramatically teased and towering hair.”
The synopsis concludes:

”At the peak of her power and influence, Gwen demanded that church members alienate themselves from anyone who was not a member, banished those that became overweight, threatened legal action against dissenters, and advocated for strict punishment of those who failed to follow church tenets.”
Gwen Shamblin: Starving for Salvation stars Jennifer Grey in the lead role, along with various others essaying pivotal supporting characters. It is directed by John L’Ecuyer and written by Richard Blaney and Gregory Small.

  1. Only death ended alleged cult leader Gwen Shamblin.s dictatorial and destructive rule over Remnant Fellowship. Her corrosive influence often isolated her followers from their families and old friends. There were no meaningful boundaries to her dictates.
