Pastor Homer Gibson publishes first book

Spreading the gospel has been Pastor Homer Gibson’s life’s work. He has recently taken a slightly different approach to getting his message in the hands of followers. The publication is the latest in a series of books and booklets published by AFF Publications, an affiliate of the Apostolic Faith Fellowship organization based in Seminole, OK.

Gibson’s book, titled “Behold the Lamb”, deals with the lamb slain as depicted in the New Testament. “It just seemed like the thing to do,” Pastor Gibson said when as about writing the book.

Writing is a new direction for Gibson is his quest to spread the gospel. The Centralia, Braxton County native began his 51-year devotion to his ministry after me moved with his family to Ohio. He pastored a church in the neighboring state for 23 years before he returned to West Virginia in 1991.

Along the way Pastor Gibson earned his Bachelor of Science degree from the Indiana Bible College and a Doctor of Divinity form Apostolic Faith Fellowship Bible Institute.

With his wife of 54 years, Louetta, by his side, Pastor Gibson has followed his calling while raising four children. The couple are now the attentive grandparents and great-grandparents to ten grandchildren and 36 great grandchildren.

Pastor Gibson currently heads up the Souls Harbor Apostolic Church at 148 Gauley Turnpike Road in Sutton.

In his spare time, Gibson is now working on his second book that he hopes to release later this year.

“Behold the Lamb” is available from Amazon for just $5.
