About the Author

Gray Harwell graduated from The University of Wisconsin in 1970 and he and his wife, Sandy, moved back to Detroit to be near their families. Gray served as a Campus Life Director with Detroit Youth for Christ, as a counselor and administrator with two social service agencies, and as a Youth Pastor in the early seventies. The Harwells spent their next twenty years ministering on college campuses in California and Michigan, and pastoring churches in Michigan,Tennessee, and Georgia. In the eighties Gray served as Baseball Chapel leader for the Detroit Tigers, had a daily radio ministry in Detroit, and he and Sandy produced and hosted a network TV ministry to marriages and families.

For the last nineteen years the Harwells have encouraged pastors and spiritual leaders through Cherith Ministries, which they founded in Atlanta, Georgia in 1995. Many spiritual leaders have been strengthened in their relationships with God, and have also experienced a new depth of unity in the Body of Christ which has impacted their churches and communities.

After Gray's father, Hall of Fame baseball broadcaster, Ernie Harwell, passed away in 2010, Gray wrote My Father's Faith, and produced a companion DVD of his father's last interview. Gray shares the story of his father's faith in churches and community groups and he and Sandy are developing other ministries to carry on Ernie's legacy of faith and compassion. Together In Prayer (TIP), a partnership of churches in Southwest Florida, is one of these new ministries. Since May, 2012, Gray has been leading TIP's ministry of bringing churches together in prayer, service and outreach.

Gray and Sandy have four adult children and four grandchildren and live in Estero, Florida.
