Pastors Tom and Deborah Gibson are originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and have been married since June 1970. They have reared four wonderful children, two boys and two girls, all of which are married and are in the house of the Lord. Currently, Tom and Deborah have nine grandchildren and hoping for more.
Pastors Tom and Deborah began pastoring a bi-lingual Hispanic church in the Washington D.C. area in 1982. At that time, there were very few Hispanics in the D.C. area; however, the population has grown into the 100,000’s. God has been faithful in the growth of this vision. Sup of the Lord Ministries is a mission-minded church and in addition to ministering to Pastors and leaders of churches in Argentina, Brazil, British Guyana, Ecuador, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Peru they have planted and/or watch over churches in Bolivia, Chile, Costa Rica and El Salvador. While traveling throughout Central and South America, Pastors Gibson also receive invitations for church conferences and pastoral conventions and have ministered to several high ranking officials in various countries. The Lord has placed upon them a specific burden for pastors, leaders, and their families and Pastors Tom and Deborah work toward strengthening the bond of family interaction in these countries and the USA.
Before entering the ministry, Pastor Tom graduated from St. Vincent’s Seminary and College in Latrobe, PA. Upon graduation in 1976, he was hired by the U.S. Government with GAO. In 1987 he chose to leave this lucrative position for full-time ministry. His wife, Deborah has earned her M.Ed. in Counseling at George Mason University and is an LPC in the Commonwealth of Virginia. While working in the secular field for many years, Deborah also accompanied her husband in the ministry. In 2007, God permitted Deborah to leave her secular duties and join her husband full-time in the ministry enabling her to travel with Tom. Her focus is to strengthen the women in these countries by teaching them who they are as daughters of the King and their importance in the body of Christ. Tom and Deborah are working together to strengthen the Hispanic community locally and abroad, helping families and pastors come into God’s plan and structure through His Word, and endeavoring towards an ever-broadening mission view.
