The inspirational series, based on the bestselling devotional book Jesus Calling (Thomas Nelson), will share stories of success, loss, heartbreak, and redemption told by people of faith from all walks of life that will inspire and encourage viewers.

Celebrity guests interviewed for season 3 include Amy Grant, Tim Tebow, Travis Tritt, Steve Wariner, Danny Gokey, Todd Hoffman, and Bubba Watson.

"We are delighted to have Chris Tomlin as host of the next season of 'Jesus Calling'," Michael Aulisio, vice president and publisher of the 'Jesus Calling' brand at Thomas Nelson said in a press release. "Chris' faith and energy are magnetic. We know viewers will be uplifted and inspired by the stories they see each week." 

Tomlin said he's "honored" to be asked to host the series. 

"Personally, I have always felt the heartbeat of 'Jesus Calling' is so in line with my calling… to help people have an encounter with God," he said. "So, to be able to share story after story of God's faithfulness in so many lives as this year's host is something I am honored to do."

During an interview with Christian Headlines, Tomlin said the television series is a great opportunity to spotlight good things happening in the world.  

"Good stories, for some reason, don't sell. So TV doesn't use it," the singer said. "And I think {the series is an} amazing opportunity to say: There's so many good things, there's so much light in this dark world. There's so much light. And that's what is highlighted in this. I feel like we need more and more and more of that. So just to be a little part of it is quite special."

Tomlin told Christian Headlines he's naturally drawn to inspiring stories.

"That's the kind of books I read," he revealed. "I love reading things about real people, real stories, people {who have} had amazing things happen in their life and have done incredible things and the way God has used them."

"I've never done anything like that," he added. "So it's exciting to do something different than just playing music and recording and singing songs."
