Bishop Wayne T. Jackson of Great Faith Ministries and Impact Network will be welcoming Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to his church Saturday, but not for sermon, rally or endorsement.

Jackson is set to interview Trump.

Jackson said he will be interviewing Trump live on Impact Network, and the presidential candidate will also be given 30 minutes to outline his policies.

Bishop Jackson issued the following statement on Trump's visit to the church:

This interview is NOT a rally or an endorsement for Mr. Trump. This is an opportunity as a community to get answers to questions that seriously impact our daily lives and future. Our community is diverse and not all issues relate to all black people, but our goal is to address those issues which our most pressing to parts of our community in these times. As the only African American Christian Television Network, we believe that both candidates understand the importance of reaching our viewers.
