DESCRIPTION:
(from OWN's press release, March 2017) "The Book of John Gray" features the life of John Gray, Associate Pastor at Joel Osteen's world-famous Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas. Known for his larger than life sense of humor and his special ability to connect with peoples' hearts, he brings a message of hope and faith to everyone he meets. A healer, a husband, a father, and a bridge-builder, he's not your daddy's preacher. Raised by a single mother, John began preaching at the age of 21, toured as a singer with Grammy award-winning Gospel recording artist Kirk Franklin, and is renowned for his ability to blend comedy, music and entertainment into a unique style of preaching. While he admits that he has faced his own enormous struggles and could easily have become a statistic, he has instead risen to prodigious success and is now trying to be the role model and father that he never had. John will give viewers unprecedented access into his life with his wife Aventer and their ministry as they help people in their community overcome life's challenges, while John also faces his own relatable struggles and triumphs as a husband and father.
