Former Radio DJ Asking the Industry for Help


Naphtali Jimi Bruce asks the industry for help before Eviction

GoFundMe page set up for $1000 need
Hello!  I am a former music radio personality ("DJ") for almost forty (40) years who now needs your help so I can move away from Charleston, South Carolina ASAP and avoid a sudden eviction threat, please. Even though I never fell behind on my rent, paid it on time every time and was a model, mature tenant, always trying to help management benefit from my many years of tenant associations, the once friendly landlord guy, Steve, did a "180" on me on March 1, 2019, with an email saying he would "not renew" our "month-to-month" lease which began, May 15, 2017.  He has given no reason for his action and has refused to negotiate, even though he knows I am looking to move north, closer to my 94-year-old, disabled mother in New York City. I relocated to Charleston, South Carolina twenty-eight months ago to accept a possible change of career opportunity at On-Demand Publishing (Amazon) in Customer Service. They didn’t even try to help me find housing after I relocated from N.Y. !  My current housing situation at River Oaks tiny duplex “efficiency” apartments where they found “white mold” in my apartment and relocated me temporarily to "clean" it, a year ago, in May 2018. Why Steve would threaten me with eviction at this juncture is a mystery, however, I gotta get out of here and need your help to quickly raise a security deposit for a house (not a tiny "shoebox" like I have stayed in here at River Oakz) where I can regain my self-sufficiency and add to my Social Security fixed income. At my age, I am technically one of our country's "senior citizens" and his discrimination-like mistreatment of me suddenly would create a hardship of catastrophic proportions should it force me into homeless status and wreck my new, freelance home-based business plans, which are just beginning to bear fruit here in early 2019! It's like "Deja Vu all over again"!  Unbelievably, this is the second time I've been threatened by eviction since I decided to try South Carolina as a place to reinvent myself following almost forty (40) years as a music radio personality. At "lease" (pun) this time, I have a little SSA cushion - but it isn't enough when I am trying to move interstate. Please ask any questions you have to qualify your donation and remember, no amount is too small.

Los Angeles, CA – All new episodes of Leftfield Pictures’ “The Book of John Gray” featuring pastor John Gray (senior pastor of Relentless Church in Greenville, South Carolina while also serving as an associate teaching pastor at Joel Osteen’s world-famous Lakewood Church) and his wife Aventer premiering Saturday, April 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Pastors John and Aventer Gray are back, preaching and ministering to anyone and everyone who may be in need of hope and grace, strength and healing. As they come to terms with their own struggles in their marriage and John’s health, we see that their imperfections may also be the source of their wisdom.

    • John helps a fourteen-year-old girl experiencing racism for the first time at school and meets a woman who runs a popular style blog, but secretly hides her personal insecurities. John and Aventer seek advice on how to build their team for Greenville.
    • Aventer meets with close friend LeToya Luckett of Destiny’s Child, who just got back from her honeymoon and has a glow about her.
    • John helps former fashion stylist reclaim her life after losing her legs in a devastating car accident. Married couple DJ & Stacey reach out to John when their new business causes distrust and miscommunication in their marriage.
    • John works with a young boy who is acting out after the death of his father figure, and helps an MMA fighter find new purpose after he loses his ability to fight. Aventer wonders if she has what it takes to be the First Lady of their new church.
  • Tyeesha is having a hard time dealing with the loss of her oldest son to gun violence, all while trying to raise her three other children, as well as her deceased son’s newborn. Both she and Tyson are concerned that Snooty may be headed down the wrong path as he struggles to deal with his brother’s passing, and John kicks it into gear to try to help heal not only a mother’s heart, but also to give her advice on how to heal her son’s.

While they continue to work for one of the largest churches in America, they are also wrapping up their life in Houston and preparing to follow John’s new calling to take over as the senior pastor at a megachurch in Greenville, South Carolina.  As John tries to deal with the pressure to build a new team quickly, Aventer deals with the anxiety of having to move her family yet again, and even greater fears about whether or not she is ready to take on the role of first lady and pastor of a church.

John and Aventer attempt to deal with issues ranging from bullying, racism, infidelity and illness to sexual assault, unplanned pregnancy, incarceration, grief and more, both John and Aventer share God's teachings and reveal the complexities of their personal journey like no one else -- with courage, commitment, and a much-needed sense of humor.

Their road may be rocky, but no matter where they are, John and Aventer are always willing to fight the good fight, and their greatest priorities remain love for their church family, their children, and each other.

“The Book of John Gray” is produced for OWN by Leftfield Pictures, with Gretchen Palek, Shawn Witt,  Jordana Hochman and showrunner Rob Cornick as executive producers, alongside Jason Kennedy and Rich Wilkerson, Jr. as consulting producers.
