The popularity of John Gray, Associate Pastor at Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, might make some think he had this all planned out in advance. (eewmagazine.com)

But according to the star of OWN’s docuseries “The Book of John Gray,” it was God and not his own maneuvering, that put him on the map. In recent ABC13 interview Gray said,”… when I gave my life to the Lord and I submitted my heart to ministry, I said God wherever you take me I’ll follow.”

On becoming an Associate Pastor at Lakewood Gray said, “… God chose to put me on that platform. But the platform doesn’t make you, it just exposes you. So, whoever you are will come out wherever you are.”

This popular pastor said, “I may not always be perfect, and I’m not. I’ve never been that, but I’m always gonna be real. Adding, people are more discerning than they let on. They can spot a phony a mile away. And I think that’s the reason they come out: because they know I’m real.”

“I don’t want the applause of man and not get the applause of one. I really want God to be pleased with my life,” he said.
