The family of the Founder of Relentless Church based in Greenville, South Carolina, Pastor John Gray are pleading to the body of Christ to pray for him as he battles for his life in the critical care unit of an unnamed hospital.


Pastor Gray who served as an associate pastor to Pastor Joel Osteen at the Lakewood Church in Texas before leaving to start the Relentless Church, has been diagnosed with Saddle Pulmonary Embolism with additional clots of blood in his lungs.

Pastor Gray’s wife, Aventer, who also serves as the co-pastor, in an instagram post gave details of the illness.


“After feeling a little different over the past couple of weeks, he went to the ER on Thursday evening and was immediately admitted to the CCU with a saddle pulmonary embolism in the pulmonary artery and more lung blood clots. The Saddle PE is in a position that could potentially end his life if it shifts at all.  The clot burden is severe and only GOD is holding it in place.”

According to her, the doctors added that, most people come into the hospital dead with this disease. As of Monday, she recounted that although the lung clots are still in place, the clots in his legs have vanished. She encouraged all Christians to continue praying for her husband as they transfer him to another hospital in Atlanta.
