Pastor John Gray apologized to his long-suffering wife for stepping out on her again. Gray's attorneys claimed he was being extorted by a woman who said he asked her to send nudes.
In a video posted on YouTube, Gray humbled himself and apologized to his wife, Aventer, and his congregation at Relentless Church in South Carolina.
To his wife, Gray said he was sorry for the pain he caused her. "You don't deserve it. You are an amazing woman of God."
The pastor spoke directly to his church and "God's sheep" who looked to him as an example of leadership.
"I want to take this moment to tell you I'm sorry," he said. "I'm sorry for the areas of my life that I left unattended."
He continued, "For every area of behavior that has dishonored the Holiness of God, I want to tell you I'm sorry."
