Golden State Warriors point guard Steph Curry may not be active on the basketball court with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic affecting just about everything, but the NBA champion is staying active within his faith.
To ensure that, this evening Curry and his wife, entrepreur, Ayesha Curry will host a church service via Instagram Live with Pastors John and Aventer Gray called Home and Hallelujah.
The Instagram Live Service begins at 8 PM ET, 7 PM CT and 5 PM PT.

Before becoming a pastor, Pastor Gray appeared on ABC sitcom, Sister Sister and was a member of 90s gospel recording group, Kirk Franklin & the Family.
Gray starred in The Book of John Gray on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN Network which was a “dramedy docu-follow hybrid about the life of John Gray and his uniquely humorous way of helping people.”
“As everyone practices social distancing during the ongoing pandemic, we want to bring people together virtually to encourage and uplift them,” Gray said in a released statement.
“We are fortunate that so many of our friends wanted to be a part of it, and we’re looking forward bringing ‘Home and Hallelujah’ to everyone.”
