With various reports surfacing about the Relentless Church pastor’s infidelity, John Gray himself took the time to write about the incident, and most importantly, seek his wife’s forgiveness.

Gray began his open letter with an admission of his decision to step down from church duties to focus on his wife, mentioning that his life was not in order. He revealed:

“My wife deserves better. The pain I caused her is immeasurable. Seeing her name in blogs because of things I did broke my soul.”

Despite considering her as a gift from God, a life-giver, and a kingdom builder, Gray admitted to emotional unfaithfulness, leaving no excuse for the gravity of his sins and the damage he has done.

According to the woman, the pastor orchestrated their relationship and even asked her to come over to his home.

In pursuit of facing his inner battle, Gray shared his on-going counseling. He ended his post with an apology to Aventer, promising to regain her trust. “I will be the man God intended and the husband that Your heart can rest with. I’ll be the father my kids can be proud of,” he said.

Since the issue surfaced, Gray immediately addressed his congregation the following month, requesting for his followers’ prayers and understanding of the matter at hand.

Although he minimized church duties, he remained hopeful of the public’s continuous commitment towards the church community. During his time off, Gray also had the chance to be grateful for his family as he posted about his wife and kids.

The photo, which showed a family wearing matching clothes, meant more as Gray noted through hashtags that his kids would be better than him and that he would die before he quit.

Gray’s cheating scandal involved asking a woman who identified herself as Mary for photos in exchange for money, which was later reportedly used for blackmail and extortion.

According to the woman, the pastor orchestrated their relationship and even asked her to come over to his home. Voice mails were brought as evidence against Gray.
