Since accepting his calling into the ministry at the age of 16, Rev. Gray has taken seriously the words of 2 Timothy 2:15: “Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” Once described by Rev. Dr. Carolyn Ann Knight as embodying “…the best of Howard Thurman, W.E.B. DuBois, and Elijah Mays”, Rev. Gray brings passion, intellect, and activism to the pulpit. He has been a minister with the National Baptist Convention USA since 1999 and was licensed under the ministry of Bishop Victor T. Curry at New Birth Baptist Church.
