Deitrick Haddonâ€™s â€˜Comeback;â€™ Debate on â€˜Charging for the Gospelâ€™ | Gospel Truth Magazine
Next up is Bishop Ron Gibson and first lady LaVette Gibson of Life Church of God in Christ, a 4,000-member congregation.
Gibson, a former gangbanger, came to Christ during a drug overdose at a party. As he tells it, while OD'ing, he heard his mother's voice say, "Call on the name of Jesus. That very same night, Bishop Gibson "converted to Christianity." "I don't know what I'd do without Jesus," he says in one scene, before adding his wife, "the love of my life," as no. 2 on the list of important people in his life. Viewers are first introduced to the couple while they are in the kitchen at home, discussing a gang-related shooting at the home of an acquaintance. Bishop Gibson tells lady Gibson that he plans to make a visit in an effort to prevent a retaliatory attack. When lady Gibson asks who will be going with him, Bishop Gibson responds: "I'll be honest with you. I'm going into a gang-infested neighborhood. So I'm taking the Lord along with me, but just in case they don't respect the Lord in me, I'm also taking the law with me. So I'm taking Mr. Glock." Anticipating his wife's concerns, Bishop Gibson asks her to simply pray for him. Lady Gibson isn't so sure about Bishop Gibson walking with a handgun on a return visit to Compton.

Bishop Gibson talks to a young gangbanger in Compton. (PHOTO: THE CHRISTIAN POST VIA OXYGEN)Bishop Gibson talks to a young gangbanger in Compton. "I go back to Compton like Jesus went back to Nazareth. He never forgot to go back to Nazareth where the less fortunate were. And that's what I do, I go back," says Gibson.
