St. Peter's United Church of Christ's Rev. Derek Terry is returning to the Oprah Winfrey Network series Iyanla: Fix My Life this weekend (Feb. 8) for a follow-up "Where Are They Now" episode. 

The Pleasant Ridge-based reverend first appeared on the television show in October of 2015 where he came out to over a million television viewers. 

"Terry is an openly-gay, African-American clergyperson who leads a Cincinnati-based church that grounds itself in the vitality of social justice efforts and a firm belief in the acceptance of all people regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, or background," a press release from St. Peter's UCC reads.

The upcoming episode will focus on Rev. Terry's progress over the past five years while traveling, preaching and lecturing about his views on courageous living, spirituality, civil rights, race and social justice. 

The television series is led by Iyanla Vanzant, a New York Times best-selling author, spiritual life coach and executive producer. Vanzant guides her guests to a positive and productive path by working through unresolved issues and teaching them ways to "break the negative patterns that are preventing true happiness."

The show will air 10 p.m. ET on Saturday, Feb. 8 on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
