Andrew Gray

(1633-1653)

Andrew Gray was a youthful Church of Scotland minister who led one of the congregations in Glasgow Cathedral; the Outer High Church of Glasgow. Gray’s personal holiness was such that he was described as a “spark from heaven.”

Gray was a warm and winsome preacher with a deep spiritual experience who could also be searching in urging God’s threatenings upon the consciences of his hearers. Those who heard him testified, “that many times he caused the very hairs of their heads to stand up.”

He died at the age of 22 years old after a ministry of only 27 months. It has also been said of him, “We may safely say that never in the history of our country did a man of his years make so deep a mark.”
