The 54-year-old Gray is a Kentucky native and grew up in Lyon County. He was pastor at churches in Cadiz and Oak Grove in Kentucky and in Memphis, Indiana. He served the state organization as the West Regional consultant to 500 churches and for the last three years has been team leader for the Evangelism, Church Planting and Campus Ministry team.

Gray said he’s “grateful for the opportunity to serve” although he didn’t aspire to the post.
