"My Family"

It was an eventful weekend for Aventer and John Gray. The pastors of Relentless Church commemorated their son John Gray Iv’s birthday as well as Easter Sunday.


“Happy Resurrection Sunday from my family,” Aventer shared with her social media fans on Sunday (Apr. 9). The pastor’s wife also shared pictures of the family that honored the resurrection story of Jesus.

“Service was so anointed and word powerful,” one parishioner told John and Aventer on Instagram. “You looked beautiful today,” another social media follower declared. “Love your dress,” the supporter added. “Thanks for all that you give to love and uplift our church community!”

John and Aventer also celebrated their son’s eleventh birthday, which was on April 3, 2023. “It’s my son’s birthday,” Aventer exclaimed on her son’s special day. “The one that made me a mother. My First Born Son is now a whole tween,” the celebrity mom added.

“Eleven years ago today, April 3rd… at Northside Hospital in Atlanta, GA, I gave birth to my firstborn son,” Aventer told her social media fans. “My sweet 6-pound, 7-ounce prince made it seven days prior to his due date healthy and happy,” the doting mom exclaimed.

“I cannot express the joy you bring me,” Aventer wrote to her son. “Your heart, your charm, your tenacity, your humor, your faith, your resilience, just YOU… You are our miracle! I am so grateful I have the honor of being your mother. I can’t believe 11 years have gone by this fast.”

“I love you with everything. I ask God daily who you and your sister are, and I pray to guide you with your dad @realjohngray, in the way of the Lord while teaching you how to be a great human and understanding your spiritual being,” Mrs. Gray shared.

“I’m greatly blessed to know you,” Aventer told young John. “You came from me…That’s awesome,” the celebrity mom exclaimed. “I thank God for your Big heart, your drive for music and dancing like MJ and James Brown, and your borderline condescending intelligence. God saved your life miraculously, that’s why we know who you are is something never seen before.”

John IV enjoyed a spectacular birthday party at Big Air that placed Spider-Man at the forefront. The youngster is the oldest of Aventer and John Gray’s two children.
