My Testimony:

Pastor Ollie Gray III grew up in Poughkeepsie, New York with his Parents Deacon Ollie Gray Jr. and Lucy Gray, 3 sisters Debbie, Jackie, Brenda and a brother Landon. At age 16 he began occasional drug use. By age 21, drugs became an issue for him. Deliverance from drugs came during prayer at the altar with his father Deacon Ollie Gray Jr. at Beulah Baptist Church in December of 1986. He moved to Waterbury Connecticut in March of 1987 where he met his wife Cyndi. On June 11, 1988 they were married. On December 12, 1993 he attended a Church service at Living Faith Christian Church with his 2 sons Ollie age 3 and Malik age 2 at that time on that day he had a life changing encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ. A few days later while driving to New York worshiping the Lord listening to Mississippi Mass Choir he was glorious filled with the Holy Spirit. God has taken him on incredible adventure since that day. My wife and I attended Christ for the Nations in Dallas Texas from 1996-1997. I am ordained through CFNI.
