Bishop Ron Gibson (@RonMGibson1)

Born and raised in South Central L.A. and Compton, 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, until Christ changed his life.  He started Life Church Of God In Christ with nine members, which has now grown to a congregation of approximately 4,000 members. In 2011 he was appointed by the General Board of the Church Of God In Christ as the Bishop of the Dominican Republic Jurisdiction. Through it all he’s accumulated much, but the one thing that he and his devoted wife, Lady LaVette, have not experienced is the joy of having children. 

Bishop Gibson finds fulfillment by passionately leading people into the same deliverance that he experienced through the Gospel. With nothing but his faith to protect him, he takes his ministry to the streets of the most dangerous neighborhoods in South L.A. in hopes of saving more of his fellow brothers and sisters, including his own sister Shaun. With their strong commitment to the word of God, Bishop Gibson and Lady LaVette’s convictions lead them to confront the nature of the relationships of those closest to them.
