Ron Carpenter Passes Baton to John Gray as Redemption Church Becomes Relentless

Pastor Ron Carpenter preached his farewell sermon on Sunday and officially transferred leadership of the 21,000-member multi-campus Redemption Church in Greenville, South Carolina, to former Lakewood Pastor John Gray.

“I want the agreement of the house because this is not a trivial moment to me,” Carpenter, who founded Redemption in 1991, told the congregation. “This is the peaceful transference of power.”

Carpenter asked members of the church to lay their hands on Gray as he prayed for protection, wisdom and favor for Gray and his wife, Aventer. He then handed a key to Gray, noting he had it since the day he started Redemption.

“From this moment forward, this is Relentless Church,” Pastor Carpenter said after the emotional hand-off, introducing the new name of the megachurch under Gray’s leadership.

Congratulations are in order to Pastor John Gray and his wife Aventer, who are now the new pastor of Relentless Church as Pastors Ron and Hope Carpenter relocate to San Jose, Calif. to pastor.

We wish both Pastors Well. May God’s guidance lead them.
