minister and chaplain at the age of 27. Dr. Gibson has always
believed that chaplains must be living bibles, they must be all
things to all people, by showing the love of Jesus Christ, not
just talking about it..He received his Certificate of consecration
and ordination for the office of Bishop with the Wesley Synod
in Canterbury England in 2003, where he served as a counsel to
the bishops and their families for 10 years. Due to falling health
in 2016 at 68 years of age he had to retire from the stress of
full time ministry. His love for ministry has taken him in a new
direction volunteering his time on the training needed for chaplains,
minister and other clergy members in ministry. He will continue

to the leadership of Chaplain Fellowship Ministries International
