Jeremy is a legend in the world of pornography. He made a name for himself in the 1970s making adult films and has now been in more than 2,000 of them.

Miles McPherson, the pastor of The Rock Church, said Jeremy will be a guest at five services on Sunday.

Every week, about 12,000 people fill the pews of the church to hear McPherson's message. Now, McPherson hopes his followers will open their hearts and minds for this unlikely church guest, who he believes is perfect.

"We started a series called 'Exposed' about five weeks ago talking about what is exposed in our heart when we judge people," he said.

The professional football player turned pastor says most of society would turn their backs on people like Jeremy.

"He's not a Christian, he's living a sinful life in people's eyes and his lifestyle is contrary to the Bible but still, we're obligated to love him," said McPherson.

The words "Jesus Loves Porn Stars" is splashed on a colorful promotional poster for Sunday's unusual guest. McPherson hopes the sermon will encourage people to look at themselves in the mirror.

"One out of every two guys watch pornography and one out of every six women… so there's pornography in church every week, we just don't talk about it," he said.

This will be Jeremy's second visit to The Rock church. In 2010, he debated the virtues of his livelihood with XXXChurch pastor Craig Gross. McPherson said not everyone is on board with his return.

"Oh, people think it's not appropriate," he said. "They don't think they can learn anything from him being there."

McPherson hopes to prove there is something to learn.
