Yes! You heard it here first (see live video below taken yesterday), Tasha Cobbs was officially announced by upcoming new Pastor, John Gray, as new praise and worship leader of what will soon be named Relentless Church.
Redemption Church, will officially be given over to Pastor John Gray in May. Apostle Ron Carpenter recently stepped down to accept a senior pastor-ship role in California. Jubilee Christian Center is an even larger mega church in San Jose, known for launching the career of Ron Kenoly.
“Why would God choose Greenville to launch revival?”
John gray asks that question during service on Sunday and begins to tell the congregation his assignment and vision for the leadership and membership who will stay in Greenville, S.C. as well as to the new leadership and membership Gray brought with him. Pastor John Gray has will maintain his role at Lakewood Church where he is an associate pastor for Pastor Joel Olsteen.
I don’t think the body of Christ has experienced transition on this level. The world is looking to see how we respond. The devil got angry because he couldn’t stop what God was doing and then we gave him a black eye because a white man gave his church to a black preacher in a southern state and said ‘Take that devil!” And we will stay diverse, and we will stay honoring of every part of our culture, and it doesn’t matter what you look like or where you come from, you will be welcomed in this house.
Some days we gon’ shout like the old black church mothers. Then we gon’ sing some Gaither Vocal Band. We might sing some hymns. We might do a little classical because everyone comes from a different place and we’re gonna honor every tradition, but most of all we’re going to lift up the name of Jesus.
The church once again goes into an uproar which never really died down since praise and worship or even since the announcement was made.
Tasha and John Gray have been a dynamic duo, teaming up to minister several times at Lakewood church and beyond (see Awakening Revival 2018) Tasha, who is also recently married, is a first time grammy award winning artist who broke into the music industry with her independent project, Smile. Tasha Cobbs- Leonard will officially move to South Carolina to start her new role in May.
Todd Galberth will remain at Relentless as both mainstream singers become cohorts in the role of praise and worship leader. Stay tuned for more coverage about this powerful transition in the southeast.
