Born and raised in South Central L.A. and Compton, to many, Bishop Ron M. Gibson seemed to be the least likely to end up a preacher. Although he was raised by a Christian mother in the Church, Ron succumbed to the pressure of the streets and became a Compton Crip by the age of sixteen. This led to a life of crime and drug addiction. In 1980, Christ changed his life. In 1987, he started Life Church Of God In Christ with nine members, which has now grown to a congregation of approximately 4,000 members. Through it all he’s accumulated great wealth, power and purpose. The one thing that he and his wife have not experienced is the joy of having children. However, he finds fulfillment by passionately leading people into the same deliverance that he experienced through the Gospel – whether they were in gangs, drug addiction, or simply living empty lives.
