Rev. Gregory Gibson

The Rev. Gregory Gibson came to FPC from Dayton, Ohio where Greg recently completed a two year interim pastorate at the First Presbyterian Church in Middletown, OH. Greg grew up in New York, and graduated from Gettysburg College and Princeton Theological Seminary after which he served as a pastor near Dayton. He then embarked upon a thirty-five year detour during which he graduated from University of Dayton Law School (magna cum laude) and was a trial lawyer. During that time he always kept a foot in the ministry and served as an interim, stated supply and parish associate pastor on a continuous basis. He served as counsel to the General Assembly, as well as a chair of the synod and presbytery permanent judicial commissions. He taught at the University of Dayton Law School, and was named an Ohio Super Lawyer. He returned to Princeton Seminary for the fall semester in 2010 where he was a visiting scholar in the field of preaching. He has led seminars in preaching and stewardship across the country and retired from his law firm in 2010, after which he has devoted his full-time to serving as an interim pastor in churches seeking to grow and engage in new ministry. Greg is married to Mary Beth Gibson who is a registered nurse, and was most recently employed at Christ Methodist Church in Dayton as a parish nurse. Together they share five children and seven grandchildren. They are very excited to participate in this transitional period in the life of FPC. They are truly impressed by the staff and members of the church, and consider their ministry a wonderful call to serve God.
