WHAT YOU WILL HEAR

My guest for The Happy Hour #328 is Dr. Derwin Gray. Dr. Derwin L. Gray is the lead pastor of Transformation Church in South Carolina, which he co-founded with his wife Vicki in 2010. He has a Master’s in Divinity with a concentration in Apologetics, as well as a Doctor of Ministry degree in the New Testament in Context. He is the author of best-selling book, The Good Life: What Jesus Teaches About Finding True Happiness.

Pastor Derwin has such a good word for us and I’m so thankful for him sharing his passion and wisdom today. In this episode, he tells us about how he came to know Christ while playing in the NFL, and how that began his journey of following God’s calling to pursue diversity in the church. He also dives into what it really looks like to find true happiness in the midst of tragedy and sin. I love when he says, “The happiness that Jesus wants to give us is not a happiness that’s based on our circumstances. The happiness that Jesus wants to give to us is a happiness of becoming who we were meant to be.” That is such an important reminder. It is easy to think that we will be happy if everything in our life is in line with what the world deems is successful. Pastor Derwin reminds us that happiness is not found in those worldly successes, but rather in fully stepping into our role as Christ followers, and falling deeply in love with who Jesus is.
