Luke Gibson Sr., Pastor

Early years

While Bro. Luke was still in his mother’s womb, the call of God was spoken over him and the Lord also spoke the name that would be placed on him, “you shall have a son and call his name Luke, and he shall preach the gospel.”

These words stayed close to his mother’s heart and she often said to him, “I’m like Mary, I’ve pondered these things in my heart.”

At the age of 13 years old, the prophecy over his life began to come into fruition. Bro. Luke gave his heart to the Lord Jesus and dedicated himself to Christ.

In the Pentecostal church he began preaching the gospel, He began full time ministry at the age of 17, and at the age of 18 he started pastoring his first church in Melbourne, Florida.

His life and ministry has been influenced and shaped by the message of Bro. William Branham.
