Senior Pastor Richard Gibson
Pastor Gibson is a native West Virginian and has been married to his high school sweetheart, Annette, since 1982. They have 2 children-Chelsie and Zach.
In 1987, due to the economic conditions in Southern WV, the Gibsons moved to Raleigh N.C.
Pastor Gibson graduated the N.C. Church of God Ministerial Internship Program in 1997 and then received his Exhorter’s License in the Church of God of Cleveland T.N. He began pastoring his first church, Harvest Temple Church of God in April of 2000. Pastor Gibson went on to become an Ordained Minister in the Church of God in 2001. In 2007, Pastor Gibson moved his family back to southern WV to pastor the Man Church of God. In 2008, he became an Ordained Bishop in the Church of God.
From the time the Lord called Pastor Gibson into ministry, he knew his calling was to pastor. He has a pastor’s heart-a heart that will genuinely love, care for, and shepherd a congregation and not just “fill the position”. The Gibsons are totally committed to the local congregation where they serve. Pastor Gibson prides himself on having “stickability”, knowing that it takes time to develop relationships and earn the trust and respect of the congregation he serves.
