Members of Hebron World Church, 7165 Turner Lake Circle, will welcome Christian comedian and minister John Gray to their 10:30 a.m. service.
Originally from Cincinnati, in 1995 Gray left home to accept a role in the gospel play "He Say, She Say, But What Does God Say?" Gospel superstar Kirk Franklin starred in the play and asked Gray to become a permanent part of Kirk Franklin in the Family, and he toured with the group for three years.
In 1998 he made an appearance on the sitcom "Sister, Sister." More recently he toured with Christian rock band dc Talk and Grammy-award winning group God’s Property.
Taking a break from the entertainment industry in 2000, Gray went to work as youth minister for First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens in Somerset, N.J. A year later he accepted a position as coordinator of youth ministries at The Cathedral International Church in Perth Amboy, N.J.
Gray had the urge to go back to the stage in 2002 and toured with play "Lord, All Men Can’t Be Dogs." After the tour Gray started his own company, MANNAGOD Enterprises, which is comprised of four companies devoted to Christian dramatic productions, music, apparel and an online ministry.
In addition to his acting and ministering success, Gray has released two full-length gospel albums "Journey" and "Covenant."
