A pastor has gone viral after showering generosity on congregants in the middle of a church service. 

Pastor John Gray of Relentless Church in Greenville, South Carolina, said "The role of the Church is also to meet the needs of the people inside the house," at the beginning of the video. He then asked if there were any single parents, widows, or veterans who did not have enough to get by, and asked them all to come to the front.

As the people came, Gray called them to the altar where the offering baskets were sitting.

"Here's what I want you to do," Gray said. "There's some money in these baskets. You get what you need, for you and the kids to eat and get some gas."

"We might not be able to do everything, but we can do something," Gray says as the video fades.
