Dr. Donald Gibson Founder Of CFMI - HLCI - CBI
Fear Sees an obstacle- Faith Sees an Opportunity

Chaplain Gibson has volunteered his time since 1995 building Chaplain Fellowship Ministries, Chaplain Bible Institute and Homeland Crisis Institute. He served in the United States Marine Corps, being a Vietnam Combat Veteran wounded in 1968, and former Police Officer. Chaplain Gibson was ordained as a nondenominational minister and chaplain at the age of 27. Dr. Gibson has always believed that chaplains must be living bibles, by showing the love of Jesus with action, not just words. They must be all things to all people. He received his Certificate of consecration and ordination for the office of Bishop with the Wesley Synod in Canterbury England in 2003, where he served as a counsel to the bishops and their families for 10 years. Due to falling health in 2016 at 68 years of age he had to retire from the stress of full time ministry. He now spends his time seeking training needed for chaplains, minister and other clergy members in ministry. He will also continue to volunteer his time as advisor to the leadership of CFMI. God bless everyone!
